Under Consideration

Add the ability to specify number of swim lanes to insert into a pool

When you start a new diagram, it has an empty pool by default and you can drag as many swim lanes as you like, but this gets a bit cumbersome after more say two or three. I recently had a diagram where I needed 10 lanes. Laying that out initially took a bit.

What would be awesome is if there were a way to specify the number of lanes you would like inserted into a blank pool. This could be accomplished a number of ways:

  • A menu pick from the insert menu
  • As a part of the Pool definition pane
  • As a right click context menu option
