Bugs and Issues / Separators in toolboxes
« on: August 08, 2019, 08:26:16 pm »
Why is it that when you have a toolbox with multiple extensions for a diagram that EA shows these as a single flat list? Like

Elem1
Elem2
Conn1
Conn2
Pattern

But when you open that very same menu via the Other/MDG/... menu it puts separators between the single extensions.

Elem1
Elem2
------
Conn1
Conn2
------
Pattern

Probably EAUI.

Btw.: When in this century will it be possible to illustrate something without having to go to some 2nd external server?

Bugs and Issues / Shape script line thickness not affecting native shape
« on: August 06, 2019, 02:12:58 am »
Obviously I tried that for the first time (in V13.5 and 14):
Code: [Select]
shape main {
  SetPen(255, 127, 80, 5);
  SetFillColor(255, 255, 255);
  DrawNativeShape();
}
Does not affect the line width of the native shape (only tested for a package). I tried all combinations of SetPen and SetPenColor (or is there an operation PleaseSetThePenWidthToWhatIWantWhichIs(width) ? ?  ? ?).

General Board / Connector coloring via Template Package
« on: August 05, 2019, 06:37:48 pm »
Is that possible? I tried it for Object/Control Flow but it did not seem to have any influence. Maybe there's some kind of EA-trick needed?

Is that just a "toolbox+"? To me it seems that you now can dynamically assign multiple toolboxes to a diagram. But is there more about it? (Thank god the designer of that and me won't accidentally cross paths.)

General Board / MDG in V14
« on: July 18, 2019, 01:33:22 am »
I'm currently trying to get my hands on the View Specification introduced in V14. Besides the fact that I had to find the menu (hmm, WHIMM would be a nice one: WHere Is My Menu) and having read about saving profiles (respectively why once can't do so with a package) I have an issue with that MTS not showing exported profile xml files any longer. Any hint?

(If someone got a write up how to deal with View Specification that would be nice. The EA docs are as usual just a "click here click there" without relating the use case.)

General Board / trace vs. Trace
« on: July 07, 2019, 12:13:15 am »
I just noticed that starting from UML 2.5 the OMG guys use upper case for Trace which had before lower case. That means: models need to be migrated. Or Sparx can sweet talk OMG to take the change back.

Bugs and Issues / V15 trashed my browser
« on: June 27, 2019, 09:15:07 pm »
Now that my playtime with V15 is over (it didn't look that bad by the way) I want to go back to V13.5. But - that does no longer show the project browser :-? It pretends to show it in the window list. Uncheck/check does not help (uncheck not possible). Oh my. Looks like I have to re-install V13.

Bugs and Issues / EA15 RC where?
« on: June 27, 2019, 07:12:04 pm »
I got adventurous once again and installed V15RC. But - where is it? The installation went through with no errors and running the installer again offers Repair and Remove. But there is no EA folder where it should be.

q.

P.S. I do have EA9.3, EA13.5 and EA14 in the programs folder. No EA folder.

Bugs and Issues / Delegate notation wrong
« on: May 09, 2019, 06:00:26 am »
UML 2.5 uses a straight line (no arrow, no keyword) for delegation connectors. This has changed since 2.1.1

reported (the first since years; eager to see what happens)

General Board / Lost links
« on: March 04, 2019, 03:22:56 am »
In the past I bookmarked a couple of threads to take care later (i.e. to add information to my books). Now I wanted to work on some of these but they are all gone. E.g. https://sparxsystems.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?num=1383056444 is one of them. Is it that I have to "print the internet" when dealing with this forum?

q.

P.S. Probably those are left-overs I did not clear (or hoped they came back). They point to the buried old forum. Seems I have to just throw the links away finally.

Suggestions and Requests / Turning off MDGs
« on: January 20, 2019, 09:17:24 pm »
There should be a way to remove/hide MDGs from the selection menu.

My customer has a set of MDGs named by the company which starts with a "V" and this is, from an alphabetically view, ranked at almost the end. Since with each version EA appears to release tons of new MDGs they keep piling up in that list. And with those nice Windoze policies a standard user is not able to clean up that mess in the MDGTechnologies folder. Not only that the important MDGs appear at almost the very end (on the next page now) there are always users which find it a good idea to not only turn on, but actually use model elements from various other MDGs. What can possibly happen, I ask. Well, the real model gets a mess and someone has to spend time to clean after. Even worse, there are a number of MDGs which seem to be hard coded in EA (like ArcGIS, GML and a hand full more) which can not be removed from that list even after cleaning up the MDGTechnologies folder.

Should someone at Sparx take care? What do you think?

Bugs and Issues / Model parallel processes in SDs
« on: December 31, 2018, 08:58:05 pm »
I rarely use SDs (probably because my masochist part isn't that evolved). Anyhow, when using SDs as-is EA orders messages strictly sequential. Probably the EA designers never have seen multi-processing, but it's something that exists. So a message if sent on two different computers to some other 2 different computers CAN occur absolutely (philosophers and physicists please stay out here) in parallel. So my question: is there any hidden option where I can tell EA to allow that? (Pretty sure I know the answer but hope dies at last.)

Ok. Help yourself with spam reports. These 20 seconds were 1 or 2 days ago.
