Well, I'm using Python with WingPro which works a charme for me - but probably not for you. However, there are lots of people out there using Eclipse and whatever. You just need to use the API provided by Sparx. This internal scripting is a toy. Any IDE outside compared to that can be called a tool.

Look in the "wild" stereotypes if you have defined it there.

But of course you would treat a stererotype for one metaclass different to that for another one.
A big if/else condition at the top level of your stereotype.
Will not work for diagram properties.

Use an IDE from outside EA.

A little addendum. I was thinking about both, multiple stereotypes and stereotypes extending multiple metaclasses. The problem that came to me was the 2nd class citizenship of connectors. When you extend multiple metaclasses EA stores everything in the stereotype which should have gone to the connector (or they should have uses association classes). If you have shape scripts of other individual properties you can only put them in the stereotype. But of course you would treat a stererotype for one metaclass different to that for another one. So now you get a bad blend (good for the sink but not to create meta models). Same goes for assignement of multiple stereotypes (which might as well be an UML design issue). What happens if multiple stereotypes have the properties with the same name? Will they appear as duplicates? Will one dominate the other? Which shape script will take effect?

How about add-ins? If any, turn them off and see when the issue vanishes.

Try running a consistency check.

What makes you think they test the software? You are the tester.

asking us users what we would find useful might be an idea.
Wouldn't that make the hell freeze over? If not it would be the first time they'd show such behavior.

Honestly I rarely use that feature since it's an EA feature and not an official UML feature. I rather use the element notes if at all. This is probably a feature creep ulcer.

Just had the issue again (no idea how I got there). I had a message selected and while the properties diaglog was open the QL box was moving with the cursor in the background. But nothing happend, I could not use the dialog. Remembered this thread and hit alt and ctrl (can't remember which unlocked it) but then the dialog was enabled. The QL in the background still travelled with the mouse. Well....

Taking bets to when this is going to be fixed.

Coincidence. The last days I had that same situation (working under Parallels) so wasn't sure where that came from (too long chain of possible causes). I ended in the Windoze-solution (close programs and start again). Will remember this - hopefully.

It's the collation of the DB. Probably you can change it there (or your DBA can do so).

General Board / Re: Practical way to do reviews

Honestly, it mostly depends on the team you're working with. Creating issues (I use self-made elements from my MDG) is one thing. Putting them in a location where they can be found is the 2nd. But getting people to actually work on them is the main issue in working with issues. I remember times at Siemens many years ago. They had a strong hierarchy and QA was a whole department. Just ignoring them was impossible. But getting such an institution is impossible today. Everything is lean and smart and you develop on the go. Maybe that Siemens way from the past was the far one side. Today we're at the far other side. So, a practical tip? Good luck! (Not joking)
