Bugs and Issues / Report generation order lost
« on: May 11, 2020, 11:21:02 pm »
When I generate a report, sometimes the sequence of the items (packages, elements) is mixed up.
It seems to me, that the sequence gets sometimes wrong when I start the document generation after I have modeled a longer time and that the sequence is always right when I start the document generation direct after opening the repository.

(seen in 1428 and several other builds)

Bugs and Issues / Unmotivated line breaks of text in diagrams.
« on: May 11, 2020, 11:19:25 pm »
Mainly e.g. on names of ports and pins I have the problem that text show, gets line breaks frequently. Having that detected I change the text box size in a way the diagram is readable, but later I will get the line breaks again.

This is a real annoying Sisyphus situation. For me it seems that document generation is at least one source causing this nightmare.

After document generation, I saw some unmotivated line beaks in the report but not in the diagram and some in both the report and the diagram.
What I also see is a growth of this unmotivated line breaks over the time.
At the end several of my diagrams corrode over the time to be unreadable at the end.

Yes, what you describe is really a problem in newer EA versions!!!

In V14 or V15  (I do not remember) Sparx programmed some magic but senseless assumptions when you drag and drop something related to activities.
Most of those silly features disappear in V15.1 but some might buzz around.

I recomment to contact Sparx.

You do not need to use ports to show you interactions between properties in IDBs. You can just connect your properties directly.
With ports you are able to classify your connection points. If you don't need to do so on your level of abstaction just do not use ports.

You have to create in an MDG your on diagram types like "MyBDD" and your own toolboxes assigned to your diagrams. In your toolboxes you put only in, what you want to see in your tailoring. To refer to something what already exist in sysml you have to name  toolbox stereotype property link this "SysML1.4::TestCase".

However in V15 there is some new feature (I have not looked on it up to now), which might do the same without all this mdg fiddling.

In build 1526 there is strange behavior of ports intended to be located on the right frame border when the frame border is selectable.

The ports jump from the frame border into the frame inside pane, and when you try to fix it, the frame border moves more to the right but the ports remain within the frame inside panes. It is even somehow possible to locate the ports to the right border but having the containing ports not on the border of the containing port but somewhere within the IDB frame inside pane.
In other words the rendering of ports on the right hand side of an IDB frame is absolutely broken.

Hi philchudley,
thank you for your response!
I withdraw this issue.
I just forgot that I have to create a block first and thought that the feature is gone in 1526.

Can anyone help me how to do that please.

It is gone in 1526, but I have some other problems with that build!

From my UML standard interpretation, you can put anything on any diagram kind. Of cause what you mix up should make some sense.
This interpretation comes from this note in the standard:
NOTE. This taxonomy provides a logical organization for the various major kinds of diagrams. However, it does not
preclude mixing different kinds of diagram types, as one might do when one combines structural and behavioral
elements (e.g., showing a state machine nested inside an internal structure). Consequently, the boundaries between the
various kinds of diagram types are not strictly enforced.
Or see here:
For a long time EA had almost no diagram restrictions, unfortunately now Sparx started to implement some restrictions, but what is restricted up to now, just makes modeling for me just more difficult.
I do not say that EA should not have more UML compliant restrictions, but Sparx should not implement diagram restrictions not demanded by the UML standard.

Well new users do not have the problem now, but might get the problem in future, as long as the GUI commands continue to hop around each version.

Well, all those GUI changes form version to version are done to make EA radical better!

Some while ago in needed some seconds to find features I even use rarely, now I need more and more minutes.

A good thing needs some time and a better thing need more time. ;)
