Logizian 11.0 Release Notes

Release Date: Dec 16, 2013

Plan and manage development activity with Tasifier

Keep the development tasks in Tasifier, an agile development friendly task management platform. Tasifier keeps development tasks, related artifacts and the discussion among developers in one single platform.

Supported Retina Display on Mac

Version 11.0 is now ready for Retina Display on Mac!

Supported better way to select shapes in container shape

To avoid dragging the container shape when attempting to select shapes inside the container shape, you can temporarily freeze the parent to achieve free selection of children shapes.

Supported showing tagged values in note shapes

You can add tagged values to model elements for specifying user-defined properties. Version 11.0 enhances this feature to support showing in note shapes the tagged values added to note elements.

Supported specifying zoom ratio for diagram image that appear in diagram overview

The size of overview can now be determined by a user-specified zoom ratio.

Supported resetting shape's line and fill color to factory default

The default line and fill color of shapes can be set. Now, it is possible to reset your change to factory default.

Supported changing model element type in Model Explorer

You can change a model element to another type (e.g. an activity to action). The function was supported for shapes and in version 11.0, you can trigger the function for model elements listed under Model Explorer.

Supported the "Global Page Number" in printing

Page number can be optionally displayed in printout. Previously, the numbering of page is diagram based, meaning that each diagram has its own set of number, and the number reset for a new diagram. In version 11.0, the Global Page Number option is added to enable the continuous numbering of all diagrams.

Enhanced the Find feature to search text in nicknames

The Find feature allows you to search a model element, shape or diagram by inputting a search string. Version 11.0 enhanced the Find feature by searching text in both the original and nicknames.

Supported searching in grid

Searching of grid content is available in the grid feature.

Supported showing sub-diagrams in grid

Sub-diagram information can be shown in grid column.

Supported dragging image files from Teamwork Files pane to diagram

Teamwork File pane stores and manages project-related files and artifacts. Version 11.0 enables you to drag-and-drop image files directly from Teamwork File pane to diagrams.

Enhanced Visual History

The Visual History feature allows easy comparison and retrieval of diagram in different revisions. Version 11.0 has enhanced this feature by making 100+ little enhancements. The most noticeable change is the better display of property names.

Supported setting default nullable option for columns in ERDs

You can now specify the default option for nullable by setting the default nullable option in Project Options.

Improved presentation for unique constraint in ER Diagram

Name of unique constraint can now display in entities in ERD.

Supported pattern matching for auto column

Create entity column with the auto column feature. Pattern matching allows you to define auto column with column name like %id, so that columns that ends with 'id' will apply the auto column defined.

Supported setting nullable for auto column

Nullable has been added as a property of auto column.

Supported creating PK and FK when transiting conceptual/logical ERD to physical ERD

The transition feature is enhanced to create primary and foreign key for new entities produced by transiting a conceptual/logical ERD to physical ERD.

Supported adding reference to model elements re-used from referenced projects

Model elements referenced from referenced project are supposed to be non-editable by referencing projects. In version 11.0, we support a feature called "Shell", which allows you to add reference to those referenced elements. This allows specifying project specific references.

Supported a more effective way in jumping to referenced model element used in current project

Model Explorer is enhanced for better listing of referenced model elements used in current project. You can find in Model Explorer the referenced model element used. You can double click on it to immediately open it in diagram.

Faster report opening speed in Report Composer

The opening speed of reports in Report Composer has been reduced. The larger the report, the more obvious the improvement is.

Supported page sections in Report Composer

Add sections to report in Report Composer. Each section can define their own page orientation, header and footer.

Supported developing report in Report Composer with project data from referenced project

You can now develop a report by dragging diagrams and shapes onto your report in Report Composer.

Supported scaling image in Report Composer template in relative scale

The "ElementImage" element now supports specifying width in scale.

Supported "Keep with next" for Microsoft Word report exported from Report Composer

The "Keep with text" option is now available in Report Composer, for users who want to keep content in same page in exported Word report.

Handled the linkage of model element in documentation in impact analysis

Model element linkages can be added to documentation of model elements. To gain understanding of this kind of 'dependency', create a matrix.

Allowed shapes to be moved freely in analysis diagram

Shapes in analysis diagram can now move freely without affecting the other shapes.

Added project-based option for showing data-based gateway marker in BPD

The "X" marker can be shown in data-based gateway optionally. In version 11.0, a project based option is added to serve this purpose.

Supported specifying encoding for export BPMN XML

It's possible now to change the encoding for BPMN XML exported from your BPDs.
