Diagram custom attribute order
« on: November 27, 2017, 07:48:54 pm »
Hi,

It would be useful to have a way to define a custom order of a class attributes that is specific to a diagram.
The order is currently specific to a class, however I have several diagrams on which I need to show attributes in a different order.

e.g.
Diagram A
Class1
====
attr1
attr2
attr3

Diagram B
Class1
====
attr1
attr3
attr2

Hi Guillaume,

I've often wanted the same thing, but since Attributes and Operations are 5th or 6th class citizens of the EA ecosystem....

For the understanding of a diagram/model/system all elements are 1st-class.

I also came across the need mentioned by Guillaume.
It is relevant as well to the listing of attributes in the Run state of an object.

Best regards
