           Summary:  Implement grouping of elements
           Product: umbrello
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: umbrello-devel.kde.org
        ReportedBy: aleksander.adamowski.kde altkom pl

Version:           1.2.2 (using KDE KDE 3.3.2)
OS:                Linux

It would be nice to have a grouping functionality available in Umbrello.

The user should be able to select a set of drawing elements and choose "Group", and then they would be treated like one element for user interaction (moving, deleting, selecting, displaying the bounding box corners). Changing properties should be generally not allowed for a group, with some exceptions (color, font, 'show visibility', 'show signatures' and others should be settable for the whole group as there would be no ambiguity in their case).

It isn't necessary for connector objects (associations, generalizations etc.) to be able to join a group - they are not to be moved separately anyway. However, if both objects that a connector connects together, are in a group, the connector should be assumed a member of that group and changing e.g. color of the whole group should affect it.

Connectors leading to objects outside the group should _not_ be assumed to be members of that group, of course.
