I tried using it and had problems however I suspect they are due to my not knowing how to correctly use the editor.

Let me give 2 examples, perhaps you can give some guidance where to find information:

a.)  For a process, I want to add an Item Definition. I click Add, and it seem to add an new Item Definition with the id "ItemDefinition_1". I can see no way to edit the id. I try clicking on that and typing the id I want, and the text turns blue but does not change. I can modify this outside the editor, then the editor displays the new value when I reload the diagram.
b.) In the property sheet for the process, I add a property. This time it lets me edit the id, however (based on jBPM5 examples) I should be able to specify an "itemSubjectRef" attribute, but in the editor, it only provides for specifying Name, Data State, and Data Type.

I was using Helios so I upgraded to Indigo hoping that would change the behavior, however it seems exactly the same.

The examples given in the jBPM5 documentation are for the "older" version of the editor, plus they don't seem to go into that much detail.

I am wondering if my problems have to do with trying to do jBPM5-specific things with a tool that supports the BPMN2 specification but nothing unique to jBPM5?

Thanks for any guidance!
