Struggling with BPMN diagrams : pool/lanes
« on: August 27, 2013, 07:03:17 pm »
Hi,

EA's way of handling Pools and Lanes on a BPMN diagram is a bit of a struggle, especially when moving a selection of elements (activities, events, gateways) including pools or lanes, or moving/resizing a lane.
The main issue is that lanes are easily moved outside the lane by EA when you look at the Project Browser. Sometimes it is also difficult to move a lane at the right place on the diagram.

I tried various combinations by enabling/disabling Dockable on the Pool & Lane, and I can't find any suitable one.

Any thoughts to share? Could an improvement be carried by Sparx to make this easier?
Note : I've made sure that lanes are properly resized to fit within the pool

Thanks
Guillaume
