Saving, committing, opening, and migrating projects

  • An internal error no longer appears, when trying to open a project saved as an .xml file with MagicDraw 17.0.2 SP3.
  • A model now remains consistent after project migration from 17.0 or earlier MagicDraw version, when the project uses different branches of the same module.
  • The content of the module saved with 17.0.1 or later MagicDraw version no longer becomes locked after project migration from 17.0 or earlier MagicDraw version, when the project references elements from the module.
  • A server project no longer loses data after it is committed to the server, when the project references elements from a local module.
  • References to a module are no longer lost after removing the module usage from the project with keeping references (Remove Module > Remove, keep References).
  • Neither stereotypes applied on elements in a project that contains numerous recovered elements nor their property values are lost any longer after committing the project to the server and reopening.
  • The null pointer exception error no longer occurs after selecting a wrong file as module.
  • You can now successfully open projects containing large images.

Teamwork Server integration
