Two more days until Sinterclaus. Do the Belgians celebrate Sinterclaus? All those marzipan and sugar mice and pigs... my teeth are aching just thinking about them!

If you are posting to tonyabs, just note that he posted in February 2016. Although the information will, of course, be valuable to anyone having the same issues and finding the thread.

I have thought about permutations of the word 'Party' and Neil has made a few observations too; basically, I agree with Simon.  Your search would have to be set up like a spell checker to encompass all the conventions you might use in assigning element names (are you searching for just element names?) with capitalization, punctuation, non-alphabetic characters, use of phrases or single words etc.

You could try changing the search term to " Party " (put a space before and after the word). Or search just with a space before, then search just with a space after.

That's an interesting side-effect of the clone element functionality... in Uffe's case we will call it a feature. In the interests of it not becoming a bug, I won't follow Uffe's procedure!

If you press F1 on the Start Page, you get Help on the page and that explains what the icons are. Sadly, I am not in a position to pick up your suggestion and run with it, but the idea has been floated with the designers (in the past) and some compromises are in the pipeline.

Doesn't the Recent portal ('window' icon on the Start Page) do that for you?

Ahhhh - so that was YOU in the news report of a gentleman taken from Southern Cross to St Vincent's Hospital with a broken nose, black eyes, cracked skull and broken ribs after shooting over the handle of a luggage trolly into a platform pillar when he inexplicably sprinted with said trolly into said pillar. It's taking you a while to learn, Paolo. I thought you might give up after the episode when you burned your feet in the fire after sneezing into your "floo dust" and blowing it back out into the lounge.

YesyesyesyesyesNooooo.

Most topics are longer than a display screen, so if someone doesn't want to read the topic but move to another, they won't see the message at the bottom of the topic. They might not even read the text even if the topic is short enough to display on one screen.  You have to label the Topics button as the thing to click on to see more topics. Calling it 'Topics' is not enough for some people.

Those two links look identical to me. Could you, Peter, clarify what your problem was? What UI could you not use?

To respond to Paolo's earlier point, the web interface people are now investigating how to make the Topics button more self-explanatory. It isn't as simple as it might seem, because the header line has to be able to massage itself to fit into an iPhone display as well. No promises.

Hey Glassboy, can you nitpick again and tell Paolo that you don't press a screen button, you click on it?

I will forward your point to the decision-makers.

Uml Process / Re: What is an "Instance"?
« on: September 19, 2017, 02:20:24 pm »
Well, let's just take Paolo's example to describe an instance as being an object of a specific type with a unique reference, which in this case is a BMW 318i with a unique VIN.

But to nitpick along with Glassboy, it is quite possible to take your registration plates off your old car and transfer them (officially and physically) to your new car. So, two objects, one unique reference. AND you can take the old registration plates off your new second-hand car and put a different set of plates on. So, one object, two unique references.

Not sure where the problem lies. I have clicked the link you attached, and there is a short intro paragraph and a Topics button. Clicked on the button, a short menu of options. Selected an option, clicked on the Topics button, and a huge list of guides displays for that subject area.  Can you do that?

Or you can use the PDF versions of the same documents, which Sunshine linked to.

There are no Hong Kong-based trainers on the Asia partner training page of the Sparx Systems website.

http://www.sparxsystems.com/partners/trainers/asia.html

If no-one responds to your post here, you could try contacting some of the training partners in other countries and see what options there are for flying one of them in, or doing on-line or video training.
