Rose Limitations

Anyone using Rose for the assignment? I found several limitations for rose:
1. You can not link to another sequence diagram from one sequence diagram. All you can do is to create a note and drag and drop the other one into note. But that note is stand alone. You can not put a message to it
2. Focus of control. In rose, by default, the focus of control is way longer than necessary, and if you resize it, it doesn't work after you do any minor modifications, such as adding a note, adding a message, moving a note, etc. Am I getting into too details for the assignment?
Anyone knows the workaround? I was told by Rose tech support that they know those are open defections, but no fix soon.
Overall, Rose is very expansive, yet does not provide all the UML functionalities. In general, I think IBM products suck.

You could try the rose real time product. It's was actually developed by Object time not rational and it is a lot better, IMO.

I have used Rose for my assignment but did not face any problem as far as the assignment.

This may be true.
