Error description

  • We have several object model diagrams in our project, with
    objects and flow relationships between the objects. When
    changing the direction of any of the flows in the "Features"
    window of the flow, the direction changes in the "Features"
    window, but the line on the object model diagram disappears.
    When selecting one of the object end-points to the flow, and
    then the command "Layout>Complete Relations>Selected to All",
    the line re-appears, but does not preserve its original layout
    and formatting. By "layout", I mean the routing of the line and
    where on the objects its end-points were.
    
    Requested outcome: when changing the direction of the flow, the
    original layout and formatting of the flow is maintained on the
    diagram(s) it was visually depicted on.
    
    To reproduce:
    1. Create 2 classes or objects on an OMD.
    2. Draw a flow between them.
    3. Right-click on the flow and open Features...
    4. Change the Direction drop-down to the opposite of its
    original setting.
    5. Click Apply.
    Flow will disappear from diagram.
    
    If you then choose Layout->Complete Relations->All, the flow
    will be redrawn with the arrow in the new direction.  But, it
    will be drawn in the default manner (mid-point side to mid-point
    side).  If any changes were made to the flow's original shape or
    connections points, they are lost.
