How to save diagram showing alias names?
« on: January 28, 2010, 12:18:51 am »
I have a diagram where the class attributes have alias names.  I can display the alias names instead of the actual attribute names in an on-screen diagram, but when I try to save the diagram, it is saved with the attribute names rather than the attribute alias names.

How can I get the image saved with alias names instead?

Thanks very much in advance for any advice,

Cheers, Tony.

It is even worse then that.
If I add an alias in a GUI element it gets lost when I reopen the gui diagram.

steps to reproduce:
  • Add a GUI Element to a diagram
  • set the alias and click OK
  • Close the diagram
  • Reopen diagram
  • Open the GUI element properties
  • Notice that the alias is gone!

This is a very serious bug. Do you file an official bug report or shall I ?

Nevermind,

I just found out somebody added a trigger to the EA database in the past to disable saving the alias.  :-X

Some people.... >:(
