Message Hi Mark,

you can't avoid the display of the whole (system specific) path in the profile configuration. Also, there is no (relative) standard path to profiles, you configure your profile directories in edit->settings->profiles (default XMI directories). Hm, maybe we could strip the displayed path in the profile configuration if it is one of the configured directories?

Sharing profiles: share the XMI files. Everyone who uses it is responsible for the loading of the profile in her/his ArgoUML instance. But there is another way to share profiles: wrap them in a module and share the .jar file (has just to be put into the ext/ directory of ArgoUML). Easier for the recipients, but requires developer skills for the creator, unless you use the "module generator" module, here is a doc that demonstrate the idea how to do it: http://argouml-modul​egenerator.tigris.or​g/documentation.html​
So this module will create the sources of a profile module for you. I can help you with either that module or directly with the (reusable) profile module sources in case you don't want to use the module generator.
