      The graphical abstract presents the main findings of our research. In respect to individual and collaborative modeling, it highlights the focal modelers' perceptions regarding the acceptance of modeling tools. Additionally, it highlights the preferred architecture of modeling tools (i.e. desktop-based or web-based), preferred modeling tools' characteristics and the qualities of modelled diagrams.
