            Bug ID: 349622
           Summary: Display "documentation" in Umbrello's diagrams
           Product: umbrello
           Version: 2.16.2 (KDE Applications 15.04.2)
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: umbrello-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: ralf.habacker at freenet.de

I got a feature request from the physics department of Harvard University:

we just looked into switching from IBM Rational Modeler to Umbrello for
drawing UML diagrams.  Umbrello seems very clean and fast, so this looks
like a really useful application.  Also, it comes bundled with Red Hat,
which is convenient.

However, we did not see any way how to display the "documentation" in
the diagram itself.  We find this a very useful feature, because it
allows us to annotate with some high-level information.  (Of course we
could use "note" items next to each class we want to annotate; however,
this leads to noisy diagrams and makes moving classes around a pain.)

Interestingly, showing documentation (or "description" how it is called
there) is easy in IBM Rational Modeler, see attached screenshot.

Would you consider adding such a feature to Umbrello?

Reproducible: Always
