Combining Graphical and Textual Model Editing

This is a small video presentation, where I explain how graphical and textual modeling can be used in combination. This is based on TEF and GMF. We simply put TEF editors for single model elements into small overlay windows. These embedded textual editors can be opened from the graphical host editor. The embedded textual editors then edit a sub-model within the model managed by the graphical host editor.
