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.

Bugs and Issues / DAO.Recordset [3159] / Not a valid bookmark.
« on: December 05, 2018, 09:57:24 pm »
Anyone came across this during exporting a diagram to a file?

Yes, I ran PI check. It gives me two "invalid link geometry" messages: Missing Connector and Diagram. Those will not go away even after multiple PI checks. Notably this diagram has a connector to a connector (though I think it once exported without issues). Most likely it's just one of those bugs that never will get fixed. But if someone has an idea...

Bugs and Issues / Unsafe form when searching Help
« on: November 15, 2018, 11:39:25 pm »
When I type text in the magnifying glass field (e.g. here) and press enter my browser (Safari under OS X as well as Chrome under Windoze) tells me that I'm using a non-safe form and wether I want to proceed. This can't be intended behavior, can it?

General Board / RefGUID for diagrams
« on: November 15, 2018, 11:32:43 pm »
I guess it's simply not possible :-X but is there a trick to have RefGUIDs that are limited to diagrams so a tagged value can reference a diagram?

Bugs and Issues / Project Menu lost
« on: June 20, 2018, 08:22:17 pm »
I'm currently playing around with using EA over wine which works ok. However, I had an issue with the main menu which hovered to a separate window and somehow the Project menu was dragged out of it. I immediately re-installed EA12.1 (yes, I still use it) but the menu is still lost. I assume I have to clear the registry and/or the appdata for EA (comes to mind while typing this). Probably that will solve the issue, but is there a way to recover a lost menu item the "normal way"?

Uml Process / Creating deployment
« on: June 08, 2018, 09:56:20 pm »
On p. 654 of the UML 2.5 specs (fig. 19.7) there's a <<deployment spec>> attached (like an association class) to a deployment connector. How can this be created in EA?

General Board / The forum has been updated!
« on: May 12, 2018, 08:25:00 pm »
What does that mean? This message appears there for ages.

Further: Enterprise Architect 13.5 Released! Hmm. Aren't we already at 14?

Bugs and Issues / Log file from XMI import
« on: April 13, 2018, 12:51:00 am »
There's a check mark "Write Log File" in the XMI import dialog. Fine! But where the hell is that log written???

Suggestions and Requests / Connectors GUI
« on: March 19, 2018, 10:38:13 pm »
- When editing connectors I usually need the Roles tab open. It would be nice to have that done optionally/automatically.
- I'm using the IsOwned property regularly. Unfortunately it's placed light years away. If the properties window would be a bit larger, the "Advanced" tab could be open all time.
- Instead of True/False drop downs, would you please implement check boxes?? Generally???

Not asking for a style guide since I will not wait until hell freezes over.

Bugs and Issues / Help Page tabs wrong
« on: March 16, 2018, 08:24:49 am »
Apparently the Tabs "Website" and "User Guide" seem to be swapped. While "Website" lists PDFs, "User Guide" lists web sites. It might well be connected to Sparxian logic, though.

Uml Process / {query} constrained operations
« on: March 15, 2018, 02:43:40 am »
I had imported OMGs UML metamodel and just realized that most (all?) operations are suffixed with {query}. I don't see anything in EA that lets me set this. But going into the Post tab I find an OCL constrained which has written "Body" in the Type drop down. It's not possible to set that in EA manually. Could anyone from Sparx enlighten me what that is?

q.

P.S. The metamodel seem to have a property  isQuery : Boolean = false
