General Board / Re: Status Type color
« on: December 20, 2010, 06:20:27 pm »
I would also use my own stereotype (even toolbox) for a project like that.

However, a very lightweigth way of showing differences in elements of the same type is to work with element styles. That way, you can even color them differently in different diagrams (which is what you might want, when your statuses are like what you have, e.g. minor impact: could be true for diagram one, not true for diagram two).

General Board / Re: Easy way to change requirement status?

Instead of working with requirement statuses as a property of the element, which is the most common way and also how I do it, you could work with activity regions: one region per status.

When you then drag a requirement to a different region, it becomes a child of the status in the model tree. That way, you can even report on requirements more easily (e.g. they'll be grouped by status in reports).

Bugs and Issues / Bug with composite structure diagrams (+avoid it)

There seems to be a bug in composite diagrams (up to EA v10). Here's a bit of background, like what it is good for, the bug and finally how to overcome it:

On a shared repository, when the project becomes big, it pays to activate the lazy load.

Uml Process / Re: Search specific UML elements in Model Search

Geert's suggestions are very valuable indeed.

If you want to mass-change elements or even connectors, you could also go "the database way". This is one of the tricks I explained in my book on Enterprise Architect. Here is it in short: Disconnect EA, open the underlying database (make sure you have a backup copy!), open the table t_connector, filter it, change the type of the connector or any other value (but make sure you use the string exactly as it appears in Enterprise Architect) and reconnect. Only do this if you know what you are doing and always backup & verify.

Uml Process / Re: Globally change color of diagram elements

I had exactly the same need. I solved it with a Perl script provided by Thomas Kilian, the person who also wrote the EA Perl addin. Works perfectly, look it up in the community resources:
