General Board / Search text in package
« on: April 17, 2013, 11:07:17 pm »

i'm looking for a way to search for a particular string of text within a package and its subpackages. The search text need only be in the notes of an element, so no searching is needed in object names or attributes...

General Board / Re: External VC provider necessary?
« on: April 16, 2013, 04:52:11 pm »

what do you mean by "simple"? My need is to use version control to:

- prevent users from making unauthorized a/o unreviewed changes to models
- keep track of changes made to models (history)
- have the ability to compare different versions of a model
- if necessary, revert to a previous version of a model


General Board / External VC provider necessary?
« on: April 15, 2013, 10:59:33 pm »

I would like to know if an external version control provider (such as TFS or SourceSafe) is necessary for using version control in EA?

We work with EAP files instead of an RDBMS.


General Board / Override checkout by superuser?
« on: April 12, 2013, 10:42:24 pm »
I'm fairly new to EA's version control but is there a way to override checkouts made by users who, for instance, went on holiday or fell ill for a long period of time?

General Board / Performance generation HTML reports
« on: April 12, 2013, 06:39:01 pm »
We are experiencing some performance issues when generating HTML reports. Our suspicion is that this is caused by screenprints from other applications that are copy-pasted into the model.

Does anyone know of simular situations where this might be the case? And would replacing these screenprints with standard EA screen objects be a solution (my gut feeling says it would)?


Bugs and Issues / error when editing existing glossary item
« on: March 29, 2013, 01:47:28 am »

I keep getting a "Duplicate primary key not allowed' when I try to edit an existing glossary item  >:(

Any ideas on how to fix (or surpass) this? Am working on EA version 10 Professional Edition


I want to create new glossary definitions from some of the text items in a notes window. The EA use manual says you can do this by right-clicking on a text item and then choosing the glossary, but my context menu doesn't have that option (just the standard Undo, Cut, Copy, Paste, Select All).

Is this something I can change by changing a setting or is this implemented in versions from 7.5 up, so I should upgrade? :-[
