Some Ideias

I miss the the hashCode() and equals(Object o) methods in the generated class.

For GUI I suggest some shortcuts

Add ID Atributte -> ctrl+P
Add Atributte -> ctrl+A
Open property -> ctrl+R
Export Image -> ctrl+I
Zoom -> ctrl++ or ctrl+-

This project is amazing, congrats and continue

It's really really good

It's missing some shortcut on keyboard to improve usability.

Can I join the project? :D
