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
« on: January 10, 2014, 01:56:50 am »
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...)

General Board / Enforce new elements to be in certain package?
« on: October 03, 2013, 12:18:55 am »
It is possible to enforce the creation of elements of a certain type in a certain package?

Background: in the project browser I created a package that only contains diagrams. Dependent on the kind of element (Class, Business Role, Business Service) I want them to have in a certain package. By default, when working with a diagram, a new element is created in the same package as the diagram you are working on.

General Board / Element not to be in container in project browser
« on: October 04, 2013, 11:23:16 pm »
Is there a way to prevent that an element, which is on a diagram in a container, is shown in the project browser as being 'inside' that container element?

Reason 1 is: I simply don't want this ;-).

Reason 2 is: when the 'child' element is on two different diagrams in two different 'partent' elements, the project browser just records your latest change...

General Board / Hide stereotype in HTML export ToC
« on: October 04, 2013, 09:45:08 pm »
Is there a possibility to exclude or hide the stereotype of an element in the Tabel of Contents of the HTML export?

General Board / Multiple stereotypes and apperance(s)
« on: September 20, 2013, 01:21:57 am »
To an element more than one stereotype can be assigned. A stereotype can be used to influence the apperance of an element on a diagram.

Is it possible to show the same element on different diagrams with a different appearance, based on one of the assigned stereotypes?

General Board / Are there public examples of HTML output?
« on: September 26, 2013, 05:51:05 pm »
Are there examples of HTML output that are publicly available? Reason: get ideas, see to which extent customization is possible.

General Board / Prevent duplicate names
« on: September 25, 2013, 07:40:55 pm »
Is there a way to prevent the existence of the same names for the same kind of element? For example: names of classes must be unique; names of diagrams must be unique.

If this is not possible: is there a way to raise a warning?
