In a custom MDG, I defined own connectors. Is there a way to indicate that the connector may only have elements of type X as source (in my situation a customized element of metaclass Constraint) and elements of type Y (in my situation Class) as destination? I couldn't find this in the Special Attributes that can be set at a stereotyped model element.

As tagged value I defined:

Now at an attribute, I set the tagged value for this tag to "Dynamics AX" (which is an application component).

My question: at the Dynamics AX element, can I view that this attibute has tagged 'me'?

In a class diagram I have defined a lot of entity types. Each entity type has a relation to an application component. I defined this relation in a relationship matrix.

Now I want to 'highlight' on the diagram with entity types that are related to - let's say - application A. Or: hide / fade the entity types that are not related to application A.

I struggle how to realize this.

What I can do is to drag the application element on the diagram, activate the Relationships filter and select the application element on the diagram. Drawback: at dragging the application element on the diagram, a lot of connectors are drawn (which I don't want, but I couldn't find an easy way to prevent this, and I don't want to hide the connectors one-by-one - the application element is only for a moment on the diagram, to enable filtering).

What are your suggestions?

General Board / Pin diagram to Relation Matrix View - possible?
« on: February 29, 2020, 12:11:02 am »
I would like to pin a diagram to the Relation Matrix View (not to mix up with the Relationship Matrix). Now I every time need to reset Source, Target and Connector.

I ran Project Integrity Check and get a list of 'Invalid connector' problems with as proposed action to delete them. I can choose for 'Recover/Clean' but that's a black box. I want to know where those connectors are defined - maybe I need to correct something, and simply removing them may introduce omissions in my model. Alas even the package is not mentioned by Project Integrity Check.

How can I find details about those connectors?

I suspect it are connectors that are orphans. So I thought to found those via SQL select * from t_connector, and then filter on empty SourceElement or empty DestElement. However: for all connectors those fields are empty.

General Board / Cannot create new relationships via Relationship Matrix
« on: February 08, 2020, 02:19:29 am »
In a Relationship Matrix I have a source package and a target package selected, and for both a type (Class and ApplicationComponent, respectively). Link Type = "Dependency" and direction = "Both".

Right-click on a cell and choosing "Create new relationship > Source to Target" (or "Target to Source"). However: no possible relationship types are shown, nothing happens. Why?

When I e.g. select "Association" at Link type, I can select from some association types. So some Link Types would work, other not.

When I put some elements of both types on a diagram, and I switch to Relation Matrix View, I can edit the relationships without problem.

General Board / Relationship Matrix: select Type for ApplicationComponent
« on: February 08, 2020, 01:43:16 am »
For filtering in a Relationship Matrix on Archimate application component, I know no better way then to select "Component" at the type field and to set in the options the option "Include All Extended Meta Types" to True.

Is there another, a better way to filter out Archimate3::ApplicationComponent?

In Sparx EA, elements can get a status, a version, etcetera. Alas this is not possible for relations (connectors) between them.

I would like to have this, for example to indicate (in an ArchiMate model) that a flow relation doesn't exist anymore.

General Board / Insert template fragment into document template
« on: January 15, 2014, 12:46:02 am »
In the Sparx documentation is written how to include a template fragment into a document template: by right-click and select the 'Insert Template' context menu option. The 'Select Template' dialog should appear.

However I don't have that option. Who can help me?

General Board / Double brackets at names of stereotypes in report

How can I get rid of the double brackets ( and ) around the names of stereotypes in a report (created with a document template)?

General Board / Document creation date in RFT template
« on: January 10, 2014, 12:06:23 am »
It is possible to add a field to a document template that will be replaced by the current date at the moment a document is created?

General Board / Print only one diagram of a package
« on: October 21, 2013, 11:58:15 pm »
I have some diagrams in a package and I want to print only one of them. Not as a 'diagrams only' report. But I use an RFT-template for it. I didn't find the option there to filter on a certain diagram.

Note: I don't want to use the option 'Exclude image from RTF Documents' for the diagrams that I don't want to include in the report...

Is there a solution?

General Board / Location of user dictionary (spelling)
« on: November 24, 2013, 12:41:49 am »
The user guide tells that the user dictionary is the file 'userdic.tlx' in the EA install directory. However, I can't find the words I added in that file (after changing the extension temporary into .txt). Also the file date is not an actual one.

Where can I find the user dictionary?

General Board / Applying relative file paths
« on: October 19, 2013, 12:01:46 am »
Is there a way to work with relative file path when linking documents to model elements or when placing hyperlinks on diagrams to external files?

General Board / Prevent adding connectors to other diagrams
« on: October 11, 2013, 09:12:19 pm »
Is there a way to prevent that a newly added connector is automatically added to other diagrams on which the connected elements are present too?

(It would be nice to haven't to do anymore: RMB > Visibility > Hide Connector in Other Diagrams...)
