Align and Distribute BPMN Elements

One of the bigger features in this release is the ability to align and distribute BPMN elements in the current selection. These help out a lot in creating a clean and organized BPMN model.

Trigger the align an distribute helpers from the menu bar icons through the Edit menu.

CMMN Properties Panel

We’ve added a properties panel to CMMN that allows you to change implementation details without the need to jump into the underlying XML document. The panel supports all Camunda related CMMN extensions as well as a number of important CMMN properties.

Better Diagram Zooming

We’ve added two new zooming options that will help out with nagivating BPMN and CMMN diagrams. Now you can zoom the diagrams to their actual size and fit them in your screen, so you can see it completly. These can be triggered via the Window menu or with a keyboard shortcut.
