Important

Simulation is now part of the premium features. Only users in Professional, Workgroup (Trial included) and Enterprise can use this functionality. Why do we have this change? Bizagi Modeler offers simulation using a simulation Engine called L-SIM from Lanner (https://www.lanner.com/). In the past they provided the component for free, but now Lanner is charging Bizagi for distributing this component. Thus, Bizagi is moving the simulation capabilities to the paid tier of Modeler Services.

  • Disable Bold, Italic, Underline and/or Strikethrough formatting options Now it is possible to disable these formatting options selecting the elements that have these properties enabled. Up to now it was not possible to disable them because they appeared not to be selected.
