How to create Interfaces in rectangle shape

When you create Interfaces in UML diagrams with Astah, you can choose one from 4 types directly from the tool bar.

However when you drag and drop the Interface on diagram from structure tree, it automatically shows in circle.

To change this to rectangle shape, you need to do so from pop-up menu or top tool bar menu.

If you want the Interfaces in rectangle shape always, here is a trick to do so.

(1) Open “” with text editor. You can find it in Userhome\.astah\professional

(2) Add this option below and save the file.


Astah_System Properties

(3) Restart Astah

Then now all the interfaces you drag & drop from structure tree will be represented in rectangle shape!
