Bugs and Issues / Diagram presentation as matrix
« on: August 09, 2021, 11:46:01 pm »
Showing a diagram as matrix is nice. However, typical EA, the text in the headers is simply truncated. And there's no option to change that. We do have  long profile names and more or less the profile name is 90% of the text and the relevant stereotype can only be guessed. If at all. Wouldn't it be possible simply to just wrap names in the header boxes? Shouldn't be that difficult since it has lots of space above and below the text.

Bugs and Issues / No stereotype shown on actions
« on: August 06, 2021, 05:14:21 pm »
EA does not render a stereotype for actions. Is that intentional? If so, what ist the rationale (I would see the space issue)? IIRC the UML spec tells that the stereotype should be rendered on top, right?

Bugs and Issues / Syntax error in shape scripts ignored
« on: August 06, 2021, 05:06:12 pm »
Many years ago I asked for EA to croak when closing a syntactically wrong shape script. And that got implemented (almost immediately). Those days...

Now, I wondered why my shape script did nothing. Until I noticed that I forgot a closing quote in a string. Would you mind to croak here too?

No bug report sent. Either you take this to your list or you don't. I'd prefer the first but suspect the latter.

Bugs and Issues / not UML compliant
« on: July 22, 2021, 08:09:38 pm »
Here's one for the Sparxians: I have set _HideUmlLinks to True for all my metaclasses. Now I draw a QL from my «stereotype» to my «metaclass». Right there I find my Extension which I added via metarelationship. Fine! But right under that I see "Substution". What might that be I wonder and select it. Guess what: not UML compliant. How. Can. That. Be? Not that I told the bugger to hide anything I don't want to see, which it's silently ignoring. Rather it offers me some incompatible connector. What is wrong here? Btw. there are more entries listed by the QL and none is compliant - probably because I set metarelationships which mean all or nothing. Alas, why does the bugger list them in first place?

Metaclass or stereotype. That is the question. How about both? If those two (and likely a few more) properties could be respected from both sources? With the metaclass taking precendence? Wouldn't that be cool? So I could (still) have a general metaclass used by multiple stereotypes and define these properties therein. And for a single stereotype I could overwrite them with some individual setting.

What are dreams for: being shattered?

Bugs and Issues / Window arrangement
« on: July 22, 2021, 05:25:38 pm »
I just had one of those EA headbangers. Instead of a single click my tattering finger made a double click on a tab, and the tab was gone. Interesting, I thought. Another unique EA feature, well. So, luckily I remembered how to restore a window (via the portals). To my amazement the window did not appear. The same with a second window. But then (some kind of vision...) I found the windows. EA moved them to the very right, lower edge of the window so only a tiny column was still visible. Another proof that EA is being produced on another planet (called Sparx).

No bug report sent since it won't be fixed anyway. May all EA users have a large brain to remember all the quirks and how to get out...

Bugs and Issues / Self-referring meta relationsship not exported
« on: July 22, 2021, 02:00:33 am »
I do have a stereotype for which I added a meta relationship for some UML connector. However, when I export my profile there is no constraint exported along with my stereotype. What am I missing (except maybe again some sleep)?

Bugs and Issues / Hidden menus in profiles
« on: July 21, 2021, 01:00:32 am »
It's probably one of these days ... but somehow I have trouble with hidden menues in profiles: they don't show. The relevant entry just does not appear. I probably have to let this settle down for a day. But if anyone is using hidden menus without issue (or maybe the same as me?) please let me know.

I'm struggling to find a way creating a toolbox entry for the «taggedValue» association which appears to be a wild stereotype (belongs to no profile).

Bugs and Issues / Profile diagram override
« on: July 20, 2021, 09:33:08 pm »
I do have my own diagram for profile modeling. However, when it's placed in a «*profile» package the toolbox is always replaced by the system toolbox. The only way I currently have around that is to place the diagrams in a neutral package inside the «*profile» package. Any other bug fix for that?

General Board / stereotyped relationship vs meta relationship
« on: June 30, 2021, 05:08:27 pm »
Would there be any difference in using a meta relationship with Dependency vs. a stereotyped relationship with UML::Dependency? And if not, then why have two different connectors at all? Syntactic sugar?

Bugs and Issues / Case matters (profile quirks)
« on: June 23, 2021, 12:42:12 am »
Although EA does not seem to care for the case there are places where it does. First I noticed it with _HideUmlLinks which is case sensitive (most likely but not tested like all the other attributes which do or don't have an underline in front; oh Sparxian where have you been when the Lord spread brain?). Now I noticed a similar thing when adding Toolbox entries. stereotype and metaclass: the first belongs to no profile since it uses a keyword (ah, and where have those OMG guys been?) while the 2nd is per t_xref stated to be in StandardProfileL2 (though the properties display something different). Anyhow, what you need to enter in the toolbox is UML::Stereotype and UML::Metaclass. In that exact casing! Anything else (like UML::metaclass) will either not work at all or let EA croak in the strangest way.

Not reported since it won't be fixed anyway.

General Board / Ignoring metaconstraints
« on: June 08, 2021, 08:30:26 pm »
By coincidence (how else) I noticed that EA issues a message in the system console "Ignoring metaconstraints for...". That now gives me a pointer why my constraints did not work as I expected. However, what would be a cause for EA to ignore my constraints? Guesswork again...

General Board / Metaconstraint usability
« on: June 08, 2021, 12:04:43 am »
These metaconstraints eat a lot of space. It would certainly help if the "stereotype = " and "metaclass = " parts at the label would be taken out since they are simply just redundant.

Bugs and Issues / Metatype of connectors
« on: June 07, 2021, 10:55:49 pm »
When I create a stereotyped element with a metatype definition the latter will be shown in the Type property. But for connectors the Type always shows the extending metaclass. That's no bug, is it?
