Release date: 25th February 2013

In Cameo Business Modeler plugin 17.0.2 LTR (Long-Term Release) Service Pack 3 (SP3), the export to BPMN2 XML has been enhanced. It includes fixes in the following areas: diagramming, activity diagram transformation to/from BPMN process diagram, and XPDL export.


  • An empty line is no longer added to Text Annotations (HTML) after text is edited.
  • BPMN diagrams can now be created inside Use Cases.
  • Several activities connected by a sequence flow now can now be extracted to a new diagram.
  • Dropping a Participant to an inner SubProcess diagram now creates a Pool.
  • An activity with a boundary event can now be dropped from the Containment tree to BPMN diagrams.
  • BPMN tables can now be opened when MagicDraw is started with languages other than English.

MagicDraw projects import from BPMN 1.x to BPMN 2.0

  • The issue that caused the pool to not retain its size in some cases after importing a project to BPMN 2.0 has been fixed.
  • The Boundary Event property AttachedTo value is now calculated while importing BPMN1.x project to BPMN 2.0.
  • The issue which prevented the import of some BPMN 1.x projects to BPMN 2.0 in several cases has been fixed.

Export to BPMN2 XML

  • Projects that are created from non-BPMN2 Project templates can now be exported to BPMN2 XML files.

Import from XPDL files

  • The issues preventing the import of some XPDL files into MagicDraw have been fixed.

Activity Diagram Transformation to BPMN Process Diagram

  • The transformation capabilities of the Activity diagram have been expanded. Now not only UML Activity diagrams, but also customized Activity diagrams can be transformed into BPMN Process diagrams.
