Yes it is an interesting experience :)
You can refer to some additional resources

Advanced Documentation

you can also refer to the below thread, where some EA Gurus have shared their opinions and options

PS - To achieve what you've asked for, you must have the below structure

I was of the impression bother were supported in Professional edition, but looks like SysML is only in Systems and Ultimate.
But yes, Professional + SysML should do,

But please check with the latest versions shared in 14, they seem to have repackaged it a little bit.

Will be good if you find a way.. Have a good weekend!

If we do not overwrite the Shpaescript, it will be inherited automatically.
If you are after the same shape with only some minor differences (e.g. Color) you can also do that by just changing the default appearance of the 'Stereotype' and having (Include Color and Appearance) when saving it as a profile.

If not, you have to use DrawParentShape() (for non-UML Objects) / DrawNativeShape() (for UML Objects)

Not very sure, but have you thought along the lines of 'EA Command' 'Element Usage' as a hyperlink?

My developer instinct says.. to have t as a custom stereotype and to handle the event.

Have you tried running a Project Integrity Check?

Glad it resolved. interesting that you don't see the option, there must be a 'Lock' option in context menu

Hi ... I am very concerned about how slow the EA tool generally is, but also much worse (and even impossible to use) depending on the location from which I login to our Intranet. Does EA have any built-in tools for capturing performance or measuring speed of response?

NB: Note I am not talking about complex scripts. Even just opening a view and creating a simple link between two elements, etc.

Also connecting via http (using Sparx Cloud service) offers form 40 to 50 percent improvement in performance for WAN  (this service includes WAN optimizer component as well).

Except for bulk XML exports / imports connecting via http is relatively better.

You can also try viewing locks from 'Manage Locks'  (Configure -> Locks (in Security)), if have rights for this, you can unlock the item

You can also consider using 'Diagram filters' to select items based on some criteria

Its locked by someone else, try applying lock in project browser, and it will tell you who has locked it

General Board / Re: Importing ERwin models

Erwin allows you to export in EA recognizable XML, importing this in EA will create all entities its associations, subtype/ supertype, etc. But the diagrams will not be imported .
We need to create them manually, for subsequent synchronizations we use the MDG Office to export EA items as excel (with Synch Information), and have Excel extracts from Erwin mapped against it and import it back to EA using Import Excel (yes it is a bit of effort but we do it on a monthly refresh from Erwin)

WHich version are you using. Is the Pool 'selectable'? and  the diagram editable. (and the Z Order is fine too)
AFAIK,  you must be able to resize Pools if the above two are fine. And also  you can place your Partitions to span over the elements to nest and move it slightly to make EA include the underlying elements (i.e. snap them).

In most cases, applying a different workspace layout restores key windows back to position. Its worth to give it a try.

You can define one in the local model in 'UML Types' -> Tagged Values.
