Allowing lanes in sub processes

Based on feedback from the community (http://feedback.bizagi.com/en/responses/why-cant-i-use-pools-lanes-and-milestones-in-a-sub-process), we have seen that having lanes in sub processes is not currently restricted by the BPMN 2.0 standard, and therefore it would be an useful improvement for process modeling.

Hello

Thank you for your interest in making our product better.

For version 3.2 we made it easy to included lanes for Sub-Processes, as now, when a user changes a Task to a Sub-Process it is by default a Reusable one. This way, when users change to a Sub-Process they will immediately have the option to include lanes.

To me, this is the single biggest Modeler drawback.

With all due respect, switching default to Reusable isn't quite the solution because Reusable subprocesses have different semantics than Embedded ones.

I agree.....using Reusable process to deal with this is not the correct way as reusable process will not show as a subprocess when you export it either to Web or word document.

We need to allow sub process to be able to contain swimlanes.
