Title: caret symbol for inherited members?
Post by: GeertThijs on March 27, 2019, 05:59:40 am
UML 2.5 prescribes to show inherited attributes with a caret (^) symbol prefix. EA14 says it conforms to that, on https://sparxsystems.com/products/ea/14/index.html we read the following: "Inherited properties will now display with the caret (^) symbol before the name". I searched frantically in every option corner to activate that notation but to no avail, it's still the old notation with the name of the superclass before the attribute name. (I could attach an image of a model made with Magicdraw to illustrate this notation but the "insert image" function does not seem to work in my browser.) Thanks for helping me out here.

Well, the 14 is probably the simple cause. Report a bug.

About pictures: This board is steam driven. Place the image pn a public server and use the link.

Illustration of this notation in MagicDraw here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nY_PGwSWvh7geJsuCqAPXCNbCdUoJB_U. The version I installed is 14.1.1429 which seems to be the latest right now.

I can't seem to find a way to display those carets either.

Have you reported  (https://www.sparxsystems.com/support/forms/bug_report.html)this as a bug?

I sent a mail to support@sparxsystems.com. I have to ask our administrator here for the login and password for a priority bug report.
