Error description

  • Executing "Update/Create Activity pins" on Activity diagrams
    results in updating label information with unexpected value. The
    workaround is to set General::Workspace::GenerateNameFromLabel
    to "False". The root problem of this issue is because label info
    is not copied from argument to pin as part of sync process.
    
    The below is steps to reproduce the problem:
    1. Create an empty activity diagram.
    2. Place an operation (with an argument) onto it.
    3. Turn Label mode on.
    4. Edit the label name of the pin for the argument.
    5. Execute "Update/Create Activity pins" from context menu.
    6. You will see the pop-up saying "do you want to these pins to
    be deleted...."
    Actual: After syncing, the label information will be replaced by
    the name of argument.
    Should: After syncing, the label information should be replaced
    by the label of argument.
