      Description

      Description: Having a way to add notes to a model is useful. So is
      the ablity to use the ModelNote connector to tie a note
      to an object, however there are factors that limit its
      usefulness.

      I have been unable to connect a ModelNote to a
      constraint. I thought that such a connection would
      help to document why I used the constraint (as in the
      implementation of a business rule). As I would figure
      that most business rules are implemented, in an ORM
      model, through the use of one or more constraints, this
      might be the best way to document where the rule is
      implemented in the model. This leads to the next
      limitation.

      Each ModelNote in the diagram, shows the same
      properties in the properties window. While each note
      shows up in the object browser (and selecting the note
      in the browser selects the correct ModelNote in the
      diagram), there is no unique name or ID visbible to the
      user - again limiting purposeful use of the notes to
      document parts of the model.

      Finally, there doesn't seem to be a way to resize the
      ModelNote rectangle. It expands for longer text
      entries, but even multiline entries show as one long
      narrow rectangle - where it can get in the way of other
      model elements.

      I do like that you can connect one note to more than
      one object. In all it's a good feature, please keep
      refining it. BRN..
