I think the Sparx concept behind re-shuffling frequently is a kind free of charge user training.

By keeping the users searching around, those might detect some features they had neither ever seen nor ever missed. ;)

In the Operations dialog under Behaviour you have the check "Show Behavior in Diagram".

I looked now on your graphics, but I still do not really understand your problem. The reason might b,e that I do not really know ArchiMate.

In ArchiMate components are like UML components somehow classes (structure) and services are closed to UML activities, right?
And you want to compose Services within Application Components by a composition relationship, right?

No! unfortunately not.
I will look on it with my private equipment tomorrow.

Hi MatthiasEDV,
I am behind a firewall and cannot see you diagram, so maybe I do not understand you problem entirely.

In general for such things you have just two options:
To copy or not to copy.

If you do not copy, you need somehow a 130% model (having all) mounted together and you need some kind of attributes (e.g. tags) or other measures to mark what belongs to A only, what belongs to B only and what belongs to both.

I suggest, that you submit a bug report to Sparx.

I am not absolutely sure, because I just look sometimes to V14 to find out, if it comes to a usable state (at least usable for me).

However, what I know you might have already done, you can reduce the intelligence by making the frame selectable.

If your frame is selectable and you have managed to get a proper layout, making the frame non-selectable might cause some odd layout surprises.

Oh yes!
I just realized that even in V13 there is no context menu to do that.
I thought it is like Activities, there you can add diagrams.

After creating a state machine in EA a state machine diagram underneath is created automatically. But what do I have to do, after e.g. deleting that diagram to create it anew?

In V14, Sparx put some intelligence in a frame auto-resizing which shows that it is sometimes not so intelligent.

Bugs and Issues / Re: SysML Activity Diagram Control Flow

Just before start making EA 100% OMG compliant, my diagrams frequently contain elements which do not fit to the to the diagram type.

In SysML I put that stuff outside the diagram frame. Those elements are typically connected via trace relationships to the “real” diagram elements.

I do that, to facilitate navigation and tractability (if not suitable possible by other EA features), an aspect which is not really covered by OMG.

So please, do not start being the restrictive.

Under an activity, you usually have activity diagram, and you should have actions but not activities on an activity diagram.
Use call behaviour actions calling activities to structure your stuff.

Check if you diagram is UML or SysML.
If you create e.g. a composit diagram under a SysML activity, a UML disgram rather than a SysML diagram is created. After changing the diagram type you can switch on the frame.

General Board / Re: Sysml Nested ports in EA V14

Looking a bit deeper to build 1422 regarding that issue, it turned out that IDBs are still broken.

At least, on IBD diagram level I saw the menu item “Synchronize Structural Elements” is back, but does not synchronize anything.

Due to the fact, that the ibd frame is now not selectable by default, the Feature & Properties view cannot be used by clicking somewhere into the diagram (just confuses the users).
By making the fame selectable, Feature & Properties view can be used and the new but pure implemented frame auto-sizing is disabled as well.

Ports can now be added by Interaction Points to the frame (great!), but ports in ports do still not work.

Parts/Properties are sometimes shown, sometime not (did not find a rule). If shown clicking on a part several times still creates a part anew rather than doing a enable/disable.
Further on, if you make the frame "not selectable again", auto-sizing of the frame starts and makes the whole diagram just corrupt in layout.

It is hard to belief, that anyone from Sparx have ever use that feature after coding was done. :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(
