Intuitive and user-orientated UML design utility
The first thing you’ll probably notice once you start up Runway is how easy it is to work with. Everything feels right at home on OS X and is exactly where it should be, no surprise then that dragging and dropping elements from one place to another is accompanied by smooth and natural transitions.

Needless to say that you have full control over every element of your projects and by right clicking them you can copy, cut, duplicate, copy their style, bring to front, send to back, hide, lock, edit text, or insert image just to name a few.
