General Board / Re: EA 16
« on: October 25, 2021, 10:55:35 am »
In previous releases there has been a section in the Help listing the changes for the release, subdivided into several categories that are themselves divided into changes that caused updates to the Help, and changes that did not affect the Help. Where a change affected the Help, I provided a link to the topic or topics that described the change.  See this:

There should actually be a link to the topic for the 1559 build as well - not sure why that update isn't there. Anyway, for Release 16.0, because of the documentation effort to describe the huge number of changes and features we have implemented, I have not managed to get to the 16.0 Release Notes topic yet. That will come in due course.

There is also this:

For the search for a complete word, it depends on where you are searching. In the website search, there is an Advanced Search tab on the search results page, and if you click on that you can select the 'Phrase Search' radio button. I'm not sure how effective it is.

Within EA, a File or Code Editor search has an option for locating complete words, whilst in a Model Search you can edit the search filter to make it identify 'Equal To' terms - see

I hope these help you.

To be fair, the documentation does indeed say that, and it is incorrect. I have smacked its bottom and corrected it. The correct version should be published for the next major release of EA.

When a frame is selectable, you can operate on it directly. When it is not selectable, you can perform operations on the contents of the frame without the fear of performing the operation on the frame itself.

I think the problem is that you are looking on the wrong Properties tab. The Virtual Document elements are from an MDG Profile, so the tagged values do not appear on the Tags tab of the Properties window, but on the Element tab, in the <<report package>> and <<model document>> stereotype sections. The RTF Template tag belongs to the Model Document element.

You might have to click off the Model Document element and back on to it to make the section open up. It's shy.

General Board / Re: "Develop" missing from the ribbon

You seem to be missing a couple of ribbons, and the last two you list are the wrong way round.

Try selecting the Start > Desktop > Workspaces > Ribbon Sets > Show All Ribbons option.

What are the first five ribbons you can see?

Have a look at this.

Does your Sequence diagram meet these requirements?

1)  To be able to generate code from behavioral models, all behavioral constructs should be contained within a Class
2)  For an Interaction (Sequence) diagram, the behavioral code generation engine expects the Sequence diagram and all its associated messages and interaction fragments to be encapsulated within an Interaction element

Are you talking about Code Engineering within EA? If so, try starting here:

The facilities are available through the Develop > Source Code ribbon panel.

PCS General Board / Re: Importing part of model into Prolaborate

Well, before we do cease to be well off-topic, two things:

As far as I am aware Paolo is an Australian citizen born in the UK of Italian parents. I am an Australian citizen of English parentage and education (born in Malaya, during the Emergency). Eve is Australian born, I believe (and y'all can correct me on those facts. Except those pertaining to me!) So who is what correcting whom?

Something comprised its parts, not 'was comprised of' its parts. Composed of, yes. Consisted of, certainly. But comprised of, no.

Oh.... let's throw a hand grenade in. 'Premise' is a valid word. It means 'a fact from which a conclusion is drawn'. As in: "All mammals are warm blooded." "Therefore an animal that is not warm blooded is not a mammal."

A premise and conclusion can be divided into a major premise, minor premise and conclusion. So "All mammals are warm blooded." (Major Premise) "I am not warm blooded." (Minor Premise) "Therefore I am not a mammal." (Conclusion). Oh look - two premises there!

But it is likely that there is perfectly labelled 'On-premise software' if the software is deriving facts from single other facts.

I'm not classically educated. But I readed loads of dicshun... dikchu... word books.

General Board / Re: Where is my menu (in 15.2): Show system output
« on: April 23, 2021, 10:35:38 am »
I'm not sure what you mean by the 'Portals menu item' - are you looking for something that displays the Portals or for something accessed from a menu within the Portals?

There are so many ways to access the Portals, but the most obvious way is through the Portals icon at the left of every ribbon.

You can also find it under Start > Desktop > Design > Explore, or by pressing Ctrl+Shift+8.

General Board / Re: Where is Ctrl-Shift-F gone in V15.2?
« on: March 16, 2021, 10:16:46 am »
That is not the option that you seek. The option that you seek is in the Project Toolbar (Start > Portals > Show Toolbar > Project Toolbar, then 5th icon from the left; a pair of binoculars over a Package icon).

The Help does say that Ctrl+Shift+F is a shortcut for this option, but that key combination - as you have discovered - is confined to opening the File Search dialog. I will correct the Help.

At the foot of the page you are staring at now, there are six columns of options. In the fifth column (purely by chance, not Freudian at all!) the third option is Report a Bug.
