I have went throught the help and found what i was looking for, in the diagram properties the Elements "use Stereotype Icons".

However this only works for classes, not for the SPEM elements.
Am I missing something?
Thanks in Advance.

There is a tag attached with SPEM Activity called "iconstyle", set the tagged value to "false", you will get the textual style presentation for the stereotype, a decoration icon displayed at the right top corner. Every EA SPEM stereotype has such tag, which allow users switch from iconic presentation to textual presentation.

Hope I have answered your question.

Excelent, this is exacty what I wanted.

Is this in the documentation?

In a side question, is there a standard map/relationships between all the SPEM elements? or do we have to go throught the OMG documentation?

Thanks again!

Hi, there,

As this tag has just been added from Build 845, so it has not been mentioned in help document yet, but the updated version will be available soon. Sorry for bringing up any inconvenience.

For your side question, we don't have something like a standard map for showing the relationships betweent all the SPEM elements.  But, in EA SPEM, the Quicklink function provides most of the commonly use relationships for each element. It will give you a practical guide to build up the relationships among SPEM elements.

Hope this help, if anything not clear, just put your question here.

Regards, sxie

The description has been added to the SPEM topic for build 847.  However, Archimate uses the same tagged value for the same purpose, so you could look at the existing Archimate page for a description.
Best Regards, Roy
