Linking activity diagrams independent


I am using VP-UML 5.0 Community Edition (Build 20050624a). It is a great and useful tool. I like it very much. But I miss the possibility to jump without dependencies from one activity diagram to another.

I red in one forum post that VP-UML only support sub diagram links.

But in some cases it won’t work, cause the needed link will go to an activity sub diagram which is almost a sub diagram of the same parent diagram.

Now my question:
Is it planned to implement this feature in a future version of VP-UML? It would make developing much easier.
By the way - in Borlands Together software (6.0) this feature is almost implemented.

Best Regards,


Dear Thomas,

Thank you for your message. I suggest you can try the Diagram Overview shape. You can create a Diagram Overview shape which is referencing to another activity diagram. And linkup to your existing activity. Please let me know it helps or not.

p.s. The version of VP-UML which you are using is quite out-dated. I recommend you download and install the latest version. You can see change log of every release at the change log forum

Best regards,

Dear Rain,

thank you very much for this tip. It works great :smiley:

Every time when I learn more about VP-UML I become a more greater fan of this wonderful tool. Keep it up!!

Best Regards,
