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.
Astah_interfece_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 “JudeP.properties” with text editor. You can find it in Userhome\.astah\professional

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

basic.interface_shown_as_rectangle=true

Astah_System Properties

(3) Restart Astah

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

Cheers,
SJ
