Ah yes, ArchiMate 3 quicklinks will only appear on ArchiMate 3 diagrams. Nothing to be done in EA13, I'm afraid.

Now Archimate2::Business is something you can try to extend. I don't know if it works fully for diagrams like it does for elements.

Not yet (EA 13)

but this is not exactly what I want.

Can you be more specific please. Why isn't your extended class diagram exactly what you want? Why can't you just use an ArchiMate diagram?

Look in the DiagramLinks collection for the Diagram.

Do you mean your tag name is 'MyTag' and it is defined in the profile 'Domain', or is it really called 'Domain::MyTag'? Because if it's the latter, EA will assume it's the former and things won't work. Not a good idea to put '::' in a tag name.

I guess you could then apply (visual only) markers at or near the dangling ends for human readers.

Or if you name the connector, the name will appear at each dangling end.

Uml Process / Re: Action pins and instances of artifacts

Why does UML prohibit this connection? (Or, why does EA claim that it does?)

It sounds like EA's validation code saying "it's an artifact" and using the artifact rules rather than "it's an instance" and using the instance rules. Probably worth a bug report.

Uml Process / Re: SysML: Convert SysML 1.4 block to SysML 1.3 block
« on: November 23, 2017, 09:14:45 am »
Originally I wanted to downgrade the elements to SysML 1.4 but I think the upgrade to SysML 1.4 is also a acceptable. Hopefully that there are no "hidden features"  ;)

Not much needs migrating from SysML 1.3 to 1.4. Unit and QuantityKind are now unstereotyped objects, defined by their classifier. Also View has changed from stereotyped Package to stereotyped Class, and Conform is now a stereotyped Generalization. There may also be one or two tagged values that changed names, I don't remember.

If your BPMN technology is enabled and the shapes still aren't drawing correctly, go to ribbon|Manage|Reference Data|UML Types and find and delete any stereotypes that begin BPMN2.0:: - in fact, you should delete ANY stereotype in that table with '::' in its name.

Yes, it's database-dependent. I couldn't get it to work with a Firebird repository, doesn't like the double quotes.

You can switch it off:

EA 12: Tools > Options > Behavior > Use Automatic Sub-Activities

EA 13: Start > Workspace > Preferences > Behavior > Use Automatic Sub-Activities

{bag} was replaced by {nonunique} for UML 2.2. EA hasn't caught up yet.

(I prefer bag. Why use a big word when a diminutive one would suffice?)

Try "ActivityParameter"

and if someone could explain the visual logic of that thing to me I could go to my grave a happy man

I believe the trident is supposed to look like one of those call trees that we used to draw in the days before UML.
