New Features

User defined dependencies

You can now add a dependency to any object's dependencies tab.

Just drag the objects you want to add the dependency on to either side of the dependencies tab.

User dependencies

Custom field search

You can now search a specific custom field for a value, or use it as a filter when searching other fields.

In a repository containing custom fields, go to Search tab, click Add field, select the field you want to search and enter in any value.

This will find all fields with the entered value.

Custom field search

If you also put in a value in the basic search field, you will find only objects containing both that value and the value you've entrered for the custom field.

Custom field as filter

One to one relations

You can now specify relation cardinality both for imported and user defined relations. Just double click any existing relation (or use right click > Edit relation), then change the cardinality on FK side.

You can change cardinality in the same way for new relations.
