Profiles and diagrams
« on: March 09, 2010, 09:29:52 am »
Warning: New to EA so be patient.

Can I associate a new profile that I create with a diagram so it shows up in the toolbox automatically when ever the diagram is selected?

I can't find anything is the users guide on the subject but it seems like it should be doable.

You can do it but it's quite involved. You will need to define a custom toolbox - look up Toolbox Profiles in the help file. Then you will need to define a custom diagram type - look up Diagram Profiles in the help. One of the attributes for a custom diagram type is the toolbox to be opened whenever the diagram is opened. You will then need to bundle your toolbox profile, diagram profile and your original profile into a single MDG Technology (Tools>Generate MDG Technology File to launch the wizard). Settings>MDG Technologies>Advanced>Add to point to your technology then restart EA. Begin browsing the help on this page and ask questions if you get stuck!
