create a diagram and element and click in the element box title on drawing area
to change the text
paste some multibyte copied from a terminal (am on solaris ) but it pastes
just one box, not the correct mbyte - see the first gif
(and in element properties shows as some \uffff type of notation.
if you paste into the title properties of the element, the mbyte shows ok in the
on the drawing area and in the title properties - see second gif (the 2 boxes in
title properties is from the first paste into the element.
Related perhaps to other issues that had been seen with mbyte input but have not
seen the box situation before - in past it had just not pasted anything.
Since the problem seems to involve the diagram edit control, the simple
work-around is to change the names of elements, attributes, and operations
through the Properties window.
As to the workaround mentioned, if this issue happened for english, would that
be acceptable work around or would the bug be fixed ? If it would
be fixed for english, it seems it should be fixed for other languages also.
Targeted in drawing area redesign.
Restoring original priority and using the standard NB waiver process.
Diagram area bugs waived for 6.0 will also be waived for 6.1.
will new features/etc for uml involve new implenentation of how multibyte input and pasting
is handled ?
please fix for 6.5
can multibyte sample be added to comments or in attachment?
