A template package is a good approach, but attributes defined there will only affect an element at the time it is created.

Bugs and Issues / Re: EA14: Archimate shapescript / rendering issues

Confirmed there is a problem, although I just get a connector with a blank stereotype after using F3, but I don't have a special MDG loaded. 

That "spurious <MDG>::<Stereotype> entry in the local Stereotypes list.  Causing all manner of havoc."  has been an issue for a long time.  Time it was fixed for good.

Am I missing something, since at least v13 I experience the exact opposite - Diagram Filters that anybody creates is available for all others.  The problem I'm having is if Person A creates a Diagram Filter and Person B also uses that Diagram Filter but then modifies it, thus affecting Person A's diagram along with any other diagrams that may be using that Diagram Filter that Person B modified for everybody.

Yes, but if Person A applies a filter to a diagram, only person A sees the rendeing of the diagram with that filter.

In build 1422

"ArchiMate 3

    - Quicklink behavior updated to set aggregation kind for Aggregation and Composition connectors
    - Connector validation rules updated:
        Specialization, Aggregation and Composition connectors now validate correctly
        Flow and Triggering connectors no longer report as not UML compliant"

Anyone any ideas why EA Lite hasn't been updated even though version 14 of EA has now been released for 6+ weeks?

Could it be that when EA Lite goes to version 14, it implies Sparx thinks that version is stable?

Please report an official bug.

+1  for getting these things fixed. 

One comment though, the help says "It is not possible to modify or override Shape Scripts for types that are defined in an MDG Technology",  so I don't think "I suspect that some of the above could be fixed with shapescripts" will work.

So I understand there will be a fix for the matter and I'll use your workaround meanwhile.

// Magnus

better to assume there may be a fix.  Also best to raise a formal bug report. 


Sparx has tinkered with Archimate in build 1421 as follows:

"ArchiMate quicklinker and connector validation updated:

- Missing inheritance relationships added to the metamodel[/li][/list]
- Association no longer suggested as relationships to use when creating new elements (Similar to UML Dependencies)
- Serving Relationship updated to allow all behavioral and active structural elements at either end
- Relationships to and from grouping elements added
- Suppressed UML quicklinks including common ones for being shown for ArchiMate elements"

Sorry not sure,  may be a good idea to consult with support@sparxsystems.com

And let us know the outcome please.

Well, Sparx has tinkered with this in build 1421

"ArchiMate quicklinker and connector validation updated:

    Missing inheritance relationships added to the metamodel
    Association no longer suggested as relationships to use when creating new elements (Similar to UML Dependencies)
    Serving Relationship updated to allow all behavioral and active structural elements at either end
    Relationships to and from grouping elements added
    Suppressed UML quicklinks including common ones for being shown for ArchiMate elements"

It does make you wonder if Sparx has anyone looking at product usability and user productivity as two closely related goals when making this sort of change to the user interface.

It wouldn't be a new version if they didn't shuffle everything around would it :-X

Yes, every single time it creates a PITA for the users/customers.

This is indeed a serious and very useful discussion. 

My conclusion - steer clear of time aware modelling for the foreseeable future.
