Version: StarUML 6.1.0

In a component or composite structure diagram, I'm unable to drop attributes of Subsystems from the explorer view on to the graphical subsystem in the diagram view. It pops up the error:


If it helps, there's a similar discussion around dragging/dropping ports on to Subsystems, which does appear to be resolved in 6.1.0: https://groups.google.com/g/staruml/c/lcD0alpxnBE/m/yz8OzdkSBgAJ

Thank you for your feedback.

In StarUML, Subsystem view element do not support attributes or operation compartment even if you can add attributes and operations to the Subsystem model element. So you cannot drop attributes and operations on the Subsystem view in diagram.

Subsystem is an abstraction of a sub-system of a larger system, and we don't think it's a good idea to represent its detailed attributes in a diagram. Keep it simple.

Thanks for the feedback - that makes sense.

What confused me is that I was able to create parts from the Toolbox by placing them on a subsystem in a diagram, but I wasn't able to bring those parts back out of Explorer view. Maybe that's a different issue of validation on what can be brought from the Toolbox into a diagram.
