Improper layout when multipliciteies are used in an horizontal association

0 votes
asked Nov 3 in Bug by anonymous

The layout of an horizontal association doesn't consider the width of the multiplicity to determine the minimum width required for drawing the association line.  It neither reserves a minimum horizontal space on both sides for achieving an unambiguous layout about which side of the association is concerned. 

For example, an horizontal aggregation: 

    Pond  "xxxxxx" o- "o..*" Swan 

results in the confusing diagram: 


The 0..* multiplicity should appear unambiguously on the swan side, and the line shhould be long enough to allow xxxxxx and 0..* to be on the correct side, with some distance to the opposite side and without overlap.   

The layout of the verical alternative o-- doesn't suffer of such a confusing problem.  

For the time being, the expected layout can only be obtained with the workaround of using a blank label for manual padding purpose: 

    Pond  "xxxxx" o- "o..*" Swan : "               "
