How to leverage Astah’s “Reference Model Management” for your development

Astah’s “Reference Model Management” is a very powerful function which allows you to import other project models as read-only. So you can work on your models using other project models without worrying about altering them. When there’re any updates on the original models, Astah automatically detects it and informs you, so that you won’t miss to sync and can work with the latest models all the time.

In Astah, you can add mini-icons to each model to make your diagrams expressive and alive! When you want to add information to a model, you would add text or notes or change its color. In Astah “Mini-icon” is another option. You can add a smily face, check mark, stars…! Your diagrams will become communicative and the model element can impart the information just by adding a Mini-icon.
