Settings > Comments plus Text

From release 3.25 on, a new display mode "Comments plus text" allows you to render, print, and export diagrams with the elements showing both comments and texts at the same time:

The comments are written in somewhat smaller font above the actual element text. Of course they enlarge the diagrams. Due to the triangular form of Alternative or Case element headers, the impact of including large or many comment lines may be optically desastrous. Therefore, in both Alternative and Case elements only the first line of a possible comment will be displayed (with an added ellipse "..." if there are more lines). Be aware that you still can popup the full comment if you have activated the independently usable mode "Show comments?".

The mode "Comments plus texts" can only be switched on or off via the menu "Diagram" where the "settings" are placed in the lower half:


Diaram menu with comment options

Note that activating mode "Comments plus text" disables the display mode "Switch text/comments" and suppresses its effect until the mode "Comments plus text" will be switched off again (by toggling the menu item). A previous setting of "Switch text/comments" remains preserved, though. The disabled menu button will only show a tooltip explaining what do do in order to reactivate the controls of "Switch text/comments".

Here are some more examples of diagrams in mode "Comments plus "text":
