I am working with a UML Tool that use icons in place of the visibility attributes, such as one icon for "+", "-" and "#" visibilities. Any can tell me if it can represents a problem for the assignment?
I am also using IBM RSA and i know a friend who used this tool with icons in his assignment and passed, so i think there is no issue in using this tool, RSA (earlier Rational Rose) being the most famous UML tool since inception, also RSA is UML 2.1 compliant.

Actually, in RSA you can change visibility icons to +,-,#. In class diagram, select the box you want to change, go to menu Diagram->Filters->Stereotype and visibility style| and select Visibility style:Text.
But i found a more stubborn issue in RSA, in sequence diagrams it always shows text on every msg as 1.1.1 <text> and i cannot find how to hide this sequence number, and this is forcing me to move to other UML tools having wasted lot of time creating class diagram in RSA , if anyone happens to know solution to this, please do reply.
You can remove the number (1.1.1) before the msg in sequence diagrams by selecting "No numbers" option of "Message numbering on Sequence Diagrams" in Window->Preferences->Modeling->UML Diagrams->Sequence and Communication. (I am using RSA 8.0.2)

AHA...So they improved this in new version as I am using 7.0 and there is no such option in menu. Will download 8.0.3 now and get some relief, i don't understand how RSA (earlier versions) was such a famous tool if the sequence diagram shows "mandatory" numbers which make it look highly unprofessional.
