The following menu animations can be selected from the Menu animations drop-down list:


Menu Shadows

Menu shadows can be toggled on or off by selecting or clearing the Menu shadows checkbox.

Remove Menu Options

Some menu options might not be of relevance to you. If you prefer not to display such options, follow the steps below:

  1. Whilst the Menu tab of the Customize dialog is displayed, click on the appropriate chain of options in the main menu bar to display the option to delete.
  2. Right-click on the option and select the Delete option from the context menu.


When you perform a major upgrade of Enterprise Architect (such as from release 7.1 to 8.0) the menus are reset and deleted options are replaced.
