4.2EA is mostly bug fixes but there are also some new features that I think you should know about. I will blog about some of them in a serie of What’s new in Data Modeler 4.2EA posts. This is the first one of that serie.

Design rules for a subview or a selected set of objects

Starting in version 4.2.0 (build 917) known as 4.2EA you can apply design rules to objects in a subview (they will not be applied to objects that do not exist in this subview). Simply right-click on the canvas of a subview and select Design Rules.


You can also select one or more objects from the canvas, right-click and select Design Rules. The rules will only apply to the selected objects.
