Thanks guys.
EA 'team' consists of 1 so not to much of a concern at this stage but will certainly take your advice moving forwards when we extend EA's usage & integration.
Cheers.

Thanks Nazim & Glassboy.
I'm looking to simply get control over the 'look & feel' of the Archimate3 shapes without disrupting anything else within the existing MDG. I am not in a position to invest in creating specific MDG for the business yet, just need things to 'look pretty' for stakeholders initially.

Nazim - although unconventional, would you expect your last approach to break the existing Archimate3 MDG?

The technology is an XML file and you can replace the shapescript safely without breaking it, however, there are other challenges too, all your teams must have the updated XML file. I would urge you to please consider the way the MDGs are referred prior to taking this route.

The "look and feel" is shape script over UML elements.  It's not the best shape script Sparx has produced and to do something about it you'd need to replace it completely.  A couple of posters here have produced their own ArchiMate 3 implementations for similar reasons.

There are third-party partner vendors who can offer hosting and maintenance of EA database as a service. 
https://prolaborate.com/pricing/prolaborate-cloud  (Check EA on Cloud section)

PS - EA is a thick client and that needs to be installed on users' machines though

You can choose to look at it that we have ignored the issue, or see that there have been real improvements.

Given the self indulgent pseudonym I very much doubt you'll get him to change his mind :-)

As I've said, it's an iterative process.

Enterprise Architect is a Desktop application. It is not available as SaaS.

The Pro Cloud Server can be hosted on Azure or AWS, but we don't usually do that for you.

Sorry for my ignorance, I have only started to work with EA and would like to modify some of the Archimate 3 object layouts (i.e. display version, move label location, add options to display tagged values, etc on BusinessObject, etc).

What is the simplest approach to achieve this in EA 13.5?

You'll have to completely reimplement ArchiMate 3 as a new MDG with your own shapescript.  You'll also have to make sure everyone who uses it disables the in-built MDG.
