Re: ?

I'd like to make two comments about properties editing
in dia-0.91:

1. Does it make sense to provide to users the ability
to specify, when editing the properties of a group
of objects, whether they want the intersection
of the sets of properties (properties common to
all objects in the group, which is the current
behaviour of dia), or the union of all properties?
I think the latter sometimes is also useful.

2. When changing properties while several objects
are selected (but not grouped), the changes only
apply to the first object. Isn't it more reasonable
to apply changes to all objects selected?
This way people won't need to group a set of
objects only for changing some common properties
of them.

Hello to everybody,

is there the possibility to change the properties of a group of

of a group of uml-class?)

Yes, though it is somewhat buggy.  If you group objects together
(Objects->Group) and double-click the group, you can set properties for it.
It can even handle groups of different objects, setting the applicable
properties.  However, it doesn't currently distinguish between properties
you've changes and properties that just happen to be different, so all the
grouped objects will end up with the same properties.  Fixing this is high
on the list for version 0.91.
