Bugs and Issues / Case sensitive sorting
« on: May 26, 2020, 01:23:08 pm »

It does my head in when I use diagram layout with the Sort Name (ascending) and find the the sort is case sensitive.

This isn't the way the real (e.g. business) work works, and certainly sin't what my users expect in documentation.

Any way of changing this so sorting is case (and accent) insensitive?
(and its not related to the Database collate sequence which is set to case and diacritic insensitive)

I'm a great believer in saying what systems must not do as well as what they can/should. 


I agree with that, it is important to capture decisions about what is out of scope, and why.
I do that in the scope section not in the requrements (although if I did I could see the need for requirements levels such as: not needed, too expensive, don't do this, too modern, costs jobs, whatever you do don't do this; for example)

Didn't even know that RFC 2119 existed. Published back in March 1997.
Is there nothing more recent?

Does their need to be?
The fact that this is well defined, widely used, makes it a better fit than some sort of MOSCOW varient, or an organisation specific 1 2 3 4, or low med hi IMHO

We use RFC RFC 2119 keywords to set requirement levels.
In EA the priority field has some predefined values.
I know this have been canvassed way back in the day from a search I did,
but is it possible to specify a project or model default that is different from the predefined values?

Ah, thanks, yet the adjacent "Recent" list offers several options.

Its good that the pinned names have a context menu, including Edit Name, its not so good that I can't add a leading space,
or use drag to reorder.

On the v15 start page there is a handy feature of pinned models added.

So I though excellent, I'll pin the three models I use most frequently.

After figuring out that the  EA the Manage Projects dialogue which opens by default has a checkbox to disable this
I discovered the the project I use most frequently is not at the top of the pinned projects list.

Is there any means of changing the order of this pinned projects list?

I'm curious how the consideration is going on this.
I would really like to utilise such an offering


Thanks Eve,
agreed the left hand example has worked like that for a long while (but I have some suggestions for another day).

OTOH I can see now that the right hand example has the direction wrong, but this seems counter-intuitive to me - i.e. the tree style seems to be implemented the wrong way around for the connector.
