FAQ Section: Loading and Saving
  1. Can Poseidon export models in XMI format?

    Poseidon 2.x and 3.x: Yes. There is a menu item "Export project to XMI".

    Poseidon 1.x: Yes, though not directly.
    Poseidon saves the model information in an .xmi-file (XMI version 1.2), the diagram information in a .pgml-file, and information about the project in a .argo file. All of these are then zipped to a .zargo-file. You can easily extract the .xmi from the .zargo file using any old generic ZIP application.

  2. How do I import .xmi files into Poseidon and what formats are supported?
  3. Why does the source import lose attributes?
  4. Can I load Poseidon files into ArgoUML?
  5. Can Poseidon import MDL files?
  6. Opening file chooser dialog fails - "Could not bind shell folder to interface"
