Customization

Custom Keymaps

If you want to make custom keymaps, you can create keymap.json at the user configuration path:
  • /Users/<user>/Library/Application Support/StarUML for Mac OS.
  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\StarUML for Windows.
  • ~/.config/StarUML for Linux.
You can get how to edit the custom keymap file (keymap.json) at Keymaps.
Here is an example:
1
{
2
"cmdctrl-alt-1": null,
3
"cmdctrl-alt-g": "view:show-grid"
4
}
Copied!
The first entry is to release the Ctrl+Alt+1 (Cmd+Option+1 in MacOS) key binding and the second entry is to change key binding of View > Show Grid (Command ID is view:show-grid) to Ctrl+Alt+G (Cmd+Option+G in MacOS).
If you want to know all command IDs, enter the following expression at Console (Debug > Show DevTools > Console tab).

Custom Fonts

If you want to use custom fonts, you can add a font folder in the custom fonts folder:
  • /Users/<user>/Library/Application Support/StarUML/fonts for Mac OS.
  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\StarUML\fonts for Windows.
  • ~/.config/StarUML/fonts for Linux.
  1. 1.
    Create a font folder (e.g. my-font) at the custom fonts folder.
  2. 2.
    Place a font description file (font.json) and the TrueType font files .ttf in the font folder.
The font description file looks as below:
1
[
2
{
3
"name" : "MyFont",
4
"regular" : "MyFont-Regular.ttf",
5
"italic" : "MyFont-Italic.ttf",
6
"bold" : "MyFont-Bold.ttf",
7
"boldItalic" : "MyFont-BoldItalic.ttf"
8
}

]
Copied!
StarUML should be restarted to recognize the added custom fonts.
