Add optional visual indication for model elements with non empty documentation Merged


this request is not RT specific, but since this is the produc we use I write the rfe against the RSA RTE.
We (want to) use RSA RTE through the complete development process, from requirement, through design, development and test. Es pecially for design phase we create a lot of diagrams and annotate them. We find the notes not very convenient as they increase the diagram comlexity and tend to cover too much white space. They steal focus from the important. So we use the documentation field for model elements. But during review and when re-visiting diagrams it is tiresome to find the comments as they potentially can be bound to any diagram element. So we would like to have an optional visual indication that a model element has a non empty documentation. This indication could be an overlay icon, like for transition effect/guard codes or state enter/leave actions.

Best regards,
