If so, I think it's a bug in the beta.

We believe this issue is caused by EA requesting your menu items earlier than it used to in order to fill the ribbon.

Our next build of the beta should correct this.

Check the following page to see if we have updated the beta.,39338.0.html

Bugs and Issues / Re: v14 Beta: Technologies dialog crashing

What I AM noticing is that the set of "enabled" MDGs keeps varying; particularly our local MDGs.  I select them.  They are visibly active but when you go back into the dialog, they (some) aren't selected, nor do they (some) appear on the drop-down in the Default tools bar.

Look at the Perspectives function in EA 14. All technologies are intended to be enabled visually, but the various places that you create things will filter down to the technologies selected in your perspective.

General Board / Re: EA V14 Beta; What about SysML1.4?
« on: March 13, 2018, 09:51:40 am »
SysML 1.4 and SysML 1.5 are so similar that instead of forcing everyone to migrate their models, we made the minor changes required to support SysML 1.5 directly in the technology.

The only reason that I can see this causing a problem is if you're exporting XMI to a tool that only supports SysML 1.4 the URI for SysML should be referencing SysML 1.5. (It isn't currently, but it should be)

Define your stereotype as extending the ArchiMate stereotype.

Code: [Select]
shape main {
decoration LetterA {
    orientation = "NE";

I've seen one different report of someone experiencing a crash with their add-ins loaded and connecting to a model.

If you get any more information about what you're add-in is doing that behaves differently I'd like to know too. I don't mind if it's here or via email.

The error message looks to me like our code threw an exception. (Which could be intentional) I'd need to know what function you're calling to investigate why you're only getting it in version 14.

I'm glad it's no longer bothering you. It's still something that concerns me even though no-one here has managed to reproduce it.

Have you heard the story of the boy who cried wolf?

I can confirm the bug, including that it is not related to the 14 beta. (the behavior is the same in 13.5)

This seems a little strange.

You've said in the support email that it also happens without a model loaded, but the option you state that fixes it is model dependent and is preventing you from opening that model.

I've tried setting a model to have that technology as required. The technology dialog still allows me to toggle technologies both before and after attempting to open that model.

I can confirm that 'Simple Model Views' technology is not included in version 14.0.

The functionality that it contained has been included in other technologies, which offer a substantially improved set of model patterns. It's worth having a look at the model wizard to see how it has been expanded.

As for what to do about it, I'm not sure what's best. I don't like any of the solutions I can think of at the moment.

Yes, many items have been moved from context menus into the ribbon.

It didn't quite come in correctly, but it SURE beats setting them up from scratch!
Obviously, the developers believe that the problems with doing that are worse than recreating them.

Unfortunately, I don't think any amount of testing this technology would have prevented this issue. What happened was that a user changed the model configuration to add the requirement for that MDG Technology.
