We are happy to announce version 1.3 of the Camunda Modeler!

This release comes with a new mode for DMN, morphing Expanded Sub Processes into Collapsed ones (and vice-versa) in BPMN,
a new context menu for tabs.

DMN Simple Mode

We’ve decided to introduce a new mode for DMN called Simple Mode, which intends to facilitate non technical users to work with DMN tables. Simple Mode is the default option when you open a table, but it’s possible to switch to Advanced Mode by the top right button or with ctrl+m / cmd+m. In this mode, we have provided dialogs for String, Integer, Double, Long, Date and Boolean types, that make it much easier for users to interact with the cells.

BPMN Expanded/Collapsed Sub Processes

We’ve added support for morphing Expanded to Collapsed Sub Processes and vice versa. When you morph an Expanded Sub Process with child elements into a Collapsed one, all the elements that are inside will be retained. Thus morphing back from Collapsed into an Expanded Sub Process will restore the previous state.

Context Menu for Tabs

We’ve also worked on improving the way you can work with tabs. Now when right-clicking a tab, a contextual menu will open and allow several tab related actions.
