Camunda Modeler 2.2 Released

Written by Nico Rehwaldt on , under Modeling category.

We are proud to announce the Camunda Modeler 2.2 release. This release improves the accessibility of all diagram editors, ships a number of important fixes and provides feature parity with Camunda BPM 7.10.

The diagram editors (BPMN, CMMN, DRD) now allow you to move a selection of elements with keyboard arrows, giving you more pixel-perfect control over how elements should be positioned. Use the arrow keys along with Ctrl/Cmd to move the canvas instead. Press the Shift modifier to accelerate both element and canvas movement.
