Hi ,
I have some questions for "How to"s in Jude:

Sequence Diagram
------------------
1.For the conditions, UML notes the specification should be "[condition] message text"
Whereas Jude creates it as "{condition} message text ".
Can I change the curly brackets to square brackets in Jude?
If not , what should I do? (Just put a note?)

2.For alternate flows,how to change the color ?

3.How to show a return arrow? I understand this is implicit.
But for alternate flows, I was thinking of putting a return arrow at the end of the flow completion.

Regards-
Kirti

I've got 10/12 for my sequence diagrams.

There were only subsystems shown, not classes.
No alternate flows.
No color.
And no return arrows.

Good luck!

In fact, there are return arrows in Jude . It took me quite some time to find - and an equal amount of time banging my head on the wall because it was right in front of my face...

The 7th icon on the toolbar (between "Destroy Message" and "Termination" is a "return message". You just draw it where you would like the return arrow and voila!

It is not an "attribute" of the original message (as in Together - at least before Borland, which was the last version I had the opportunity to use), maybe that is the reason it is so hard to find...

Re-reading your message, maybe it was more about where to use return arrows than where was the return arrow command... I used return arrows after the end of the flow, but only where they helped understanding. If the return parameter was too obvious on the flow, I left out the return arrow. Remember: clarity is your first priority, don't clutter more than you need to.
