Convert Rose default colors

If this option is checked, the default IBM Rational Rose colors will be replaced with the default colors of RAD Studio's Modeling.

Convert Rose actors

This option enables you to choose mapping for the IBM Rational Rose classes with actor-like stereotypes (Actor, Business Actor, Business Worker, Physical Worker). If the option is checked, the IBM Rational Rose actors are mapped to the Modeling actors. If the option is not checked, the IBM Rational Rose actors are mapped to the classes with the Actor stereotype.
