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 / Re: BPMN Data Object traceability to Data Model
« on: January 09, 2014, 11:22:26 pm »
One additional remark about the proposal of Ian to apply instance classifiers. If you do that, then you cannot see at the UML class the data associations you defined with BPMN activities.

For example, you have the UML class 'Contract'. When you put links on BPMN diagrams to this class and define data associations to and from activities, then at the relationships of the class all data associations are shown.

But if you add BPMN Data Objects to diagrams (also called 'Contract') and set as instance classifier the UML class 'Contract', then at the UML class the data associations with the activities aren't visible.

Maybe it's possible in another way to get the data associations via instances of the UML class - I don't know.

Like Ian, I also use UML Classes as Data Objects in BPMN. Luckily Sparx offers this cross relations between concepts of different approaches (BPMN - UML).

Via a matrix you easily can see the relations.

So the relation is not BPMN nor UML. Issue that I had when applying formal BPMN, is that a Data Object exists for the duration of the process. And that's not what I wanted to express.

General Board / Double brackets at names of stereotypes in report

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

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 / Re: Default to not show connectors in other diagra
« on: December 24, 2013, 01:44:42 am »
I agree with what Helmut writes. To say it in other words: there is a difference between a model (containing concepts) and the representation of the model (references to concepts). A diagram is a representation.

For example I have three concepts: role A, role B and role C (guess you use ArchiMate). All those three roles have relations with each other (let's say flows).

Now I create a diagram in which I want to focus on role A. So I have roles A, B and C, and only the relations in which A is a party.

And now the awkward thing occurs: whenever I add a relation between B and C, it's added to my diagram that has A as focus.


A modelling tool should offer good support to this. (Visio is not a modelling tool, but a drawing tool.)

I fully support this feature request!

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?

I found the file, thank you!

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?

I have the same issue as Geert has!

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...)

@Michel: Can you explain more what you want to reach?

General Board / Re: Enforce new elements to be in certain package?
« on: October 05, 2013, 06:10:36 am »
@qwerty: that's not a handy way of working; placing directly on a diagram is an easier way of working.

@Geert: OK, clear.
