  • Bug 543906 - The tool to insert vertical spaces should also allow to remove vertical spaces: in sequence diagrams, Ctrl+Shift+Mouse drag done from bottom to top can now be used to remove blank vertical space.
  • Bug 543909 - Group Menu Tool: unable to insert menu in "New" menu: the mechanism introduced in Sirius 6.1 to contribute actions at specific locations in the context menus has been extended to also support the "New" context menu.
  • Bug 543900 - Improve the bundle image provided shape extension point: the extension point which allows to contribute custom SVG images is now more configurable in how it interprets the SVG files to support a wider range of SVG files.
  • Bug 538877 - Allow double-click to finish wizard tools: in the "Select Element Model Variable", "Selection Wizard" and "Pane Based Selection Wizard", double-clicking on the element to select will now both select it and immediatly finish/close the wizard.
  • Bug 541734 - Provide better feedback in Model Explorer for Invalid representation: Invalid representations, that are either representations which semantic target does not exist anymore or representations that can not be retrieved anymore, are grayed in the Model Explorer and the only available action is "Delete". It was previously the case only for representations which semantic target does not exist anymore.
  • Bug 540918 - Diagram element decoration: enable to hide decoration at export/print in some cases: When a diagram is exported as an image, the permission authority decorations used to always appear on the image. It is now possible to configure the export action to remove them.
