<h2>Management of hidden diagram elements</h2>
<p>On diagrams a new mode allows to visualize elements that has been hidden manually. When this mode is activated, hidden elements (nodes, containers, edges) appear lighter on the diagram.</p>
<p><img class="shadow" src="../images/whatsnew6_1/sirius-6-1-visibility.png"></p>
<p>They can be made visible again by just double-clicking on them.</p>
<p>Coming with this evolution, a new dropdown menu gathering the layouting, visibility and standard mode has been added to the tabbar. The standard mode corresponds to a diagram editor without the layouting and visibility mode activated.</p>
<p>This <a href="https://blog.obeo.fr/a-visibility-mode-for-sirius-diagrams" target="_blank">blog post</a> describes this new feature.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<div id="menus"></div>
<h2>Organization of popup menus</h2>
<p>The creator of a Sirius-based modeling tool can better manage contextual popup menus by using groups.</p>
<p>In addition to specific menus in the main popup menu, now it is also possible to group actions (displayed under a separator) and to create menus on several sub-levels.</p>

<p>This <a href="https://blog.obeo.fr/organize-your-actions-in-diagrams-contextual-menus" target="_blank">blog post</a> describes this new feature.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<div id="column"></div>
<h2>First column width</h2>
<p>The first column of a table (default header column) can be hidden by default by specifying value -1 in the Initial Header Column Width field of Edition table representation.</p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>
<div id="migration"></div>
<h2>Migration from previous Sirius versions</h2>
<p>When opening a modeling project created with an older version of Sirius, the project was automatically and transparently migrated to the current version.</p>
<p>Now, since Sirius 6.1, a preference has been added to ask the user if he wants to save session resources after an automatic migration.</p>
