  • Put all your Legends on a special diagram in a storage package (Thanks Daniel)
  • Follow up to the cool tip by Daniel Siegl, Use 'Apply Auto color' option of Diagram Legends (EA 12 + ) to color elements based on properties or tagged values. Refer to two variations of same Application Portfolio diagram colored with different diagram legends.

Add attributes inline with 'Ctrl + Shift + F9' - one of the most commonly used trick in Class models

While I understand what Sunshine is saying, I actually find this quite useful.
Thanks.  Just thought this could be one thread which we all could share our little tricks that makes a modelers life more interesting.

Use the 'Create multiple Elements' utility (diagram toolbox by pressing space or ctrl right click in a diagram) to quickly create multiple elements at a time.

You can run your application in Session 0, your application will then execute EA in Session 0 too .  This runs the application at an elevated privilege and without any active user session.

Session 0 is unlikely to be a context that will authenticate against a database in a situation where you are using integrated security.
For automated publishing we could have an admin user / dedicated user to open  the repository. We've done automated HTML, DocX and XML publishing engines for a few of our clients who use EA Security as well

I have made a utility to run the HTML Publish automatically on a Schedule but the user needs to be logged into the machine for it to work. Does anyone know of a workaround to make this work? I read about a Windows Service wrapper but that only seems to wrap my utility and not the Enterprise Architect instance.

What I really want is to be able to Reference models from Confluence where we do documentation.
Will WebEA/Pro Cloud help here?

Thanksin advance,
Eamonn J.

Turning Off Auditing will help, but please consider clearing your old logs using 'Clear Logs' utility.

The auditing records does show down EA performance, as Geert pointed.  In one of my engagements,  the size came down from 3.6 GB to 700 MB, after clearing the audit records, and old baselines.  We saw the Oracle DB based EA performing better after that.

Also in such massive backlog, clear logs farrow didn't help and we've to clear the logs directly in the database (after backing up )

If you also intend to remove the step to add floating licence configuration,. you can write a registry entry in your image / deployment tool..

Copy attributes or operations  from one class to another by just dragging and dropping from Element Browser (Select source class, choose the intended attribute and drop it on the target class)

Well, after creating a storage in RAS and trying to register the top-most package (contains all our packages and subpackages), I received the ever-helpful cloud services error message: The operation timed out.

Would this failed registration process create a log on the server - or perhaps on the machine where I initiated the registration process - with enough information to be helpful for troubleshooting?

Thanks.

Michael

Sorry, i did mean RAS. RAS is useful if you are trying to find dependencies of a few  packages. And ive used it to establish branching for a number of teams. 
Howver if it's including all top level packages amd all sub packages, please consider a project transfer.

Have you also considered using RASS to ascertain dependencies for the package you are exporting from the source model?
If Project transfer isn't an option, you need to understand all dependencies using RASS and import that into your new model.

Use Traceability window to quickly drag and drop a related item into the diagram. Simple Drag and drop (Classes, Components, etc) or Right click and 'Place element in Diagram' (Activity, events, etc)

Whilst I admire your enthusiasm I think there are two problems with your approach.

Thanks for the note, i wasn't intending only shortcuts, but selective usage tips. This is something I get asked in every training, to have a place where people can share their tips. i was hoping  EA users here would contribute as they find something interesting. Will do for a  sometime, and if  it is not seen highly relevant in the forum, will leave it there.
