Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Connector.MessageArguments
« on: August 27, 2016, 01:45:49 am »
Here's the next one: I tried to alter it since the help does not tell it's r/o. But ist did not change anything. Came with 12.1. Anyone tried this before?

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / ExtractImagesFromNote
« on: August 27, 2016, 12:41:01 am »
I'm currently going through all the things that have been added to EA's API since 9.3. Has anyone ever used Repository.ExtractImagesFromNote? I just tried that but the only thing I get in return is an empty string (testing with 1224).

Bugs and Issues / Time limit for search not working
« on: August 15, 2016, 11:59:42 pm »
I had just been searching for something with the forum search. I set the maximum time to 999 but it still returned more than 6 year old posts. So either the limit is ignored or the time on planet Sparx runs differently?

Suggestions and Requests / Stop SPAM
« on: August 12, 2016, 10:38:39 pm »
Any chance to get a button that allows to move threads to a spam folder which is only visible to an operator who can then either delete it or talk to the person moving the thread? Available to long-term members only. Or a mechanism like on SO where 5 people can vote for being spam and then the thread gets deleted?

Bugs and Issues / MDG in V13
« on: July 27, 2016, 08:51:39 pm »
I had just again played around with the (first) V13 release. I noticed that switching MDGs randomly turned on other MDGs. Known issue?

The project browser reacts to vertical scrolling. The diagram area doesn't.  ???

Bugs and Issues / Exporting a statemachine diagram
« on: July 14, 2016, 07:55:35 am »
When I create a statemachine, EA creates a diagram with a frame of the statemachine inside. I can place states only inside this frame. Now, when I export this diagram, EA adds a second diagram frame. WOT? And how can I get rid of that? Soooo simple. Create a new statemachine diagram besides the bad one. Delete the diagram frame inside! Copy/paste the contents of the bad diagram without (!) the frame. Trash the bad one. Write a complaint in the forum :P

Bugs and Issues / Deletion without confirmation
« on: July 13, 2016, 05:51:53 am »
I was just trying to duplicate an operation with Ctrl-D. But guess what: it did not duplicate. It deleted the current operation. Without confirmation. Am I wrong in thinking that a tool doing a destructive delete without confirmation and without the possibility to undo is simply broken?

Suggestions and Requests / Deprecation warnings
« on: July 11, 2016, 08:37:13 pm »
EA still uses some constructs which were (silently) deprecated in newer Superstructures editions. One example is the Nesting connector (see http://www.uml-diagrams.org/nested-classifier.html; note in the last 3 paragraphs of the section). I think it would be a good idea to have ways getting them out of sight. E.g. marking them somehow in the toolboxes and/or have options to disable deprecated elements/connectors.

General Board / New Beta
« on: June 03, 2016, 08:09:08 pm »
Before downloading that: can I turn of those ribbons? They were already a crippled concept in various Windoze applications. I definitely do not want to see them anywhere. Especially not in EA.

Bugs and Issues / RefGuid and stereotype
« on: May 05, 2016, 07:34:42 pm »
I tried to define a TV with
Code: [Select]
Type=RefGUID;
Stereotypes=Stereotype1;
just like in the help. But it does not limit in any way to Stereotype1. Rather it allows to select anything.

Bugs and Issues / Generalization notation
« on: April 18, 2016, 04:05:02 pm »
A class shown on a diagram without the class from which it is specialized is shown with the name of the general class in italics top right of class compartment. Now I have fostered UML 1.5 and 2.5 but could not spot any reference which rectifies this notation. So I guess, this is a bug?

Bugs and Issues / Online Help quirks
« on: February 11, 2016, 11:19:22 pm »
Already having said, that I'm not very happy with the online help variant. Now I have another issue which might well simply be caused by my age. The contrast of the index at the left is very, very poor. I can not read it unless I zoom in (luckily with my Mac that's quite easy). So Sparxians, could you please hold your feat under the table when your marketing guys ask for a new CI and just keep the contrast in the browser at a level so handicapped people can also read what they need to read? Thanks a bunch!

P.S. Next time they are asking: send them back to Golgafrincham.

Suggestions and Requests / Entry of operations
« on: February 10, 2016, 02:46:37 am »
When you create a new operation, EA obviously can parse the parameter string. You can just paste the C++ parameter string as from the source and it will find names and types. So why not take that one step further and parse the whole signature? Assuming blanks in the name could lead EA to parse the string to find return type, name and parameters.

Similarly attributes could be treated.
