FAQ Section: Using Poseidon
  1. How can I create a 'branched' link from one class to multiple subclasses?
  2. How can I add a new stereotype to a model?
  3. How can I change the containing package of my element?
  4. How can I use Arrays (as return-parameter, for example)?
  5. How can I insert multi-line text ?
  6. How do I add an actor to a Sequence diagram?
  7. How do I draw self-connections?
  8. Why does the default type for my new attributes appear as java::lang::int?
  9. Why are folders opened instead of being selected when I click on them when trying to import an entire directory?

    At a command prompt, type 'java -version'. If you see 'build 1.5', then you are running Java 5. The file chooser has changed between Java 1.4 and 5; in 1.4 it was possible to select single files or subfolders of the current folder. In Java 5, when you select a subfolder and press "open", the chooser enters that folder, rendering it impossible to import the folder using only the mouse. Instead, you must type the name of the folder into the text field and then press 'open'.
  10. How can I hide the C++ tab because I never use it?
  11. How can I avoid Poseidon freezing when I refactor attributes with accessor methods?
  12. Did you remove the HTML documentation editor?
  13. Why can't I paste in the documentation tab?
  14. Which javadoc tags are generated by Poseidon?
  15. Does Poseidon support Java 5 constructs?
  16. I have successfully installed the plugin, but I am unable to activate Poseidon from Eclipse. What can I do?
  17. Does Poseidon work with Eclipse 3.1?
  18. I am get the message "Problems opening perspective 'com.gentleware.ide_integration.eclipse.uml'.
  19. Why can't I nest a Component inside a Node in Poseidon 5.x?
