RSA 8.5 Activity Diagram - Initial Node name visibility on diagram

Please add the ability to easily redisplay the name of the Initial node / object on an activity diagram after they have been removed from the diagram. The same is needed for the 'End' object.

RSA - Add ability to sort / order entries in Outline View

When looking at a diagram, in the 'Outline' view, we still can't order the entries when in list view, nor are they presented in alphabetical order. They seem to be in a random order, which makes searching for something laborious. (hint hint). :)

RSA 8.5 x64, unable to word wrap notes in rich text mode

Please add the ability to word wrap text inside of a rich text field on a note within uml models. The word wrap functionality should work the same way as when a note is resized without the rich text feature enabled.

Allow users to choose between WSDL fault name conventions

Currently, after a UML-to-WSDL transformation in IBM Rational Software Architect (RSA), the fault name includes the operation name in the naming format "Fault". This cannot be changed.
