How to remove a pool?


#1

How can I remove the last pool from a diagram but keep the content?
I want to go back to a simple process without collaboration - but have no idea how to do that.

I cannot move the content outside of the pool and I cannot copy/paste. Do I miss an easy way to do this?

Thanks
Bernd

No solution there right now. I can think of two things:

  • wait for copy and paste (will solve that via copy, delete pool, paste)
  • provide a special “unwrap” morph option to remove the participant and keep only its contents

What do you think?


#3

Both ways seems valid. The latter seems to be more consistent with what you do to remove lanes (there the content is always kept – which is a good thing to model with lanes).


#4

I agree: remove the pool, and keep contents is the more consistent solution according to the behaviour dealing lanes.


#5

Any news on this topic? Still facing this very regularly. Shall I create an issue for it?


#6

Or is the current “solution” to copy all content, create a new diagram, paste it there and save it over the old diagram?

At least this worked for me :slight_smile: Not the most convenient way though, but also not a high prriority due to this workaround.

Yes, copy, create new, paste is a valid solution.
