"What that might not tell you is that in order to create a new language, which you can do from the Code Template Editor, you need to define at least one datatype for the language. The dialog to do so pops up when you create the language, but it is not immediately obvious why.
Without at least one datatype, the language does not exist within EA and you cannot write templates for it."

Edit the template and set the options using the File | Options menu option. This persists the settings, whereas the Options tab on the RTF Report Generation dialog is for 'here and now" report generation.

For the instance you define, try generating a Dependency Report and/or an Implementation Report. They seem to provide the filtering that you want.

When referring to the Help, check the product installer or PDF (in the Resources section) versions for the latest release to ensure that you get the most up to date information. For the moment the web Help lags behind the product at minor releases, because it is a huge task to load up all the separate page files.

Google presents us with a few problems in trying to help people find EA Help information on the web when searching 'out of the blue'. We hope that some investigations we are undertaking will make it easier to find anything you need in the web help, and enable us to update the web Help whenever we release fresh changes to EA. Watch this space!

But point also taken David. If you searched the index with a little lateral thinking, you would have found the appropriate Help topic. I have made the index entries more direct, so you no longer need to be Edward De Bono to get to the topic. I hope!

Meaning: You set several "chapters" by defining model documents made of either pacakges or aearch criteria (or both, though I am not sure about combing both). One chapter might be the result of the search rule extracting only the basic paths from your model.

You don't combine them. If you have both in one Model Document, the RTF generator takes the package list in preference and ignores the search.

We have recently added a short topic to the Create Profiles section of the SDK. It describes how to define the default colours and border thickness for stereotyped elements and connectors. It basically focuses you on the UML Types dialog and the F4 key, as Simon and Neil have mentioned.

See the Help when the next release comes out.

Corrected - the change should be visible with the next release of EA. Thanks for identifying and clarifying the error.

Thanks for posting the document error. I have corrected it and the changes should be apparent in the next release of EA.

You make valid points, David, and we are on this case. Some, but not all, of the MDG product pages on the website have downloadable .pdf files for the MDG user guides.

Integration for Visual Studio and Integration for TcSE are bang up to date. I have updated the documents for other MDGs and we are gradually filtering their pdf files onto the website pages. In some cases the MDG product has not changed, but as the background EA has we had to update menu paths and screen examples.

SysML specifically is a work in progress, so for a little while longer we won't refresh that site.

Might that perhaps slot you in to Jan Glas' Happiness State diagram?

It is done.

OK - I have been into this and documented it more thoroughly now (and I'm assuming that you want to change a password through the User Interface, not through the AI).

First point - a USER can change their own password by selecting the Project | Security | Change Password menu option. They have to provide their current password.

If they forget their current password, they have to ask an ADMINISTRATOR to change/reset the password through the Security Users dialog, as I mentioned in my last post. However, the Administrator does not require the user's current password. They only enter and confirm the new password. The Administrator can change any other user's password.

An Administrator could change their own password through either method.

Project | Security | Manage Users, to display the Security User's dialog.

To set up a new user, enter the user details and click on Single Permissions and (if necessary) group membership. If a group, you should set up the group and its permissions first (Project | Security | Manage Groups).

To add or change a password, on the Security User's dialog click on the Change Password button and enter the current password and the new password. For new users, I believe the initial password is 'password', but I will check.

This is not well documented in the Help, so I will update it and see if I can improve matters for the 7.1 release.
