Type Specific Proposal for Dictionary items

Improvement of suggestions of Dictionary items while modeling.

Since the updates in version 9.2.0, the Signavio Process Editor only suggests Dictionary items which match the element type. This not only saves time but also supports consistent and correct use of the Dictionary. The screenshot below shows the editor providing the user with suitable suggestions for the task from the correct category. In earlier versions, the Editor suggests items from all categories, regardless of the element type. In some cases, this led to tasks being linked, for instance, to an IT system or data object Dictionary item. However, for users who would like to work with the old Dictionary suggestions feature that they are familiar with, this feature can be disabled.

This requires only a small configuration in the settings, under the item, manager portal / explorer configuration. Through the creation of new Dictionary entries from the editor, the selection of categories is additionally restricted according to the element type.
