Suddenly changed BPMN diagram
« on: November 22, 2017, 10:47:39 pm »
I don't remember having done something influencing the subject, but.. suddenly all the BPMN diagram show the elements with other icons (i.e. events are no more circle  but arrows, data stores are no more drums but rectangles..)
Some of you are able to help me restoring the standard notation?
Thansk a lot guys this is a very effective support forum!
Ciao.

Have you disable the BPMN mdg?

It's not a good idea to have both turned on. Stay with the one version and actually remove the other (and also those you even won't ever need). You have to migrate to one of the BPMN versions before eliminating the other one.

If your BPMN technology is enabled and the shapes still aren't drawing correctly, go to ribbon|Manage|Reference Data|UML Types and find and delete any stereotypes that begin BPMN2.0:: - in fact, you should delete ANY stereotype in that table with '::' in its name.

This seems to be caused by some internal anomaly in EA.  In our overnight processing, we occasionally find these "chimaera" entries in the non-MDG stereotype list.  We automatically remove them with a query.

I solved the problem just restarting EA... very strange.
I do not know the cause but just closing and reopening the project the BPMN elements was shown in the right way.
thaknks to all of you for the suggestions.

That should always be your first troubleshooting step ;)
