Ah! now I understand your issue.
When you define a Block1 having some Block1 properties and you define connectors within the Block1 IBD you want to see those connectors in an IBD of a Block2 having a property classified with Block1.
This is unfortunately not supported by EA. You can only synchronize the properties but not the connections. :'(
What would work, is if you would define the connectors within a Block2 IDB, than you could have different Block2 IBD reusing the connectors. But this is not your use case.

What I do in this scenario, is using the property of Block1 in the Block2 as a black box having a kind of diagram link to the Block1 IBD.
Unfortunately EA does not support “Select Composite Diagram” for properties for whatever reasons, so I use the diagram Hyperlink feature.
Another idea could be to use the “Show Composite Diagram in Frame” or “Show Composite Diagram in Compartment” feature.  However again you are not allowed to use that feature for properties. ::)

There are some areas in EA where Sparx spend presumably considerable effort to implement features and then they spend additional effort to block those features for stuff which could benefit from.
It is like a company would make a car, but only allow persons with name Fred to drive it.

Go to you higher level IBD.
Select the property representing the lower level
Choose „Structural Elements…“ feature.
Tick „Show Owned/Inherited
Select the properties you want to see
If you properties are connected by ports do the same „Structural Elements…“ to get you ports
By doing so, you will see your lower level connections within the parts of you higher level properties.

Not sure if I understand right, what you want to do.

From your bdd I see that you have two blocks with some part properties.
If you have some classifiers for these properties, typically you do that roperty definition by defining a “compose” relationship between Block1 and Block2.
By doing so, you define that Block 1 is part of Block 2 (shown in the properties compartment) (has nothing to do with inheritance).
A property is similar to attributes of classes (not identical but not relevant for this explanation).
IBD are intended to show how those parts of the blocks interact with each other’s. You can show these interactions by connector from part to part or by connectors to ports of parts.
Parts do not have the concept of generalization in the same way as class attributes of classes do not have the concept of generalization.
What you can generalize is a classifier of you part.

General Board / Re: Activation Code procedure

I will give my IT in the next days the task to prepare a V14 installation package.
Currently I assume, they have to add in the windows registry under Sparx Systems/EA400/EA/Settings the following properties:
ActivationCode (the ActivationCode)
ActivationDate (a somehow valid date like 2018-05-03 08:29:27)
I will come back to this issue if that does not work.

If your users intend to work on the same stuff in parallel, why do you not just consider having a proper SQL DB?

Yes, but it says nothing about how to create an EA company installation package, which do not need maybe hundreds of users to insert the activation code after the installation.

Hi philchudley,
for me the synchronisation seem to work.
However this was just a one shot test, because I still work productive with V13.

If you use a Dvorak Simplified Keyboard you can even have a bigger gap ;)

Thank you Simon!
Great guess!
Yes, the root cause was an add-in.

Bugs and Issues / MSSQL Connection Warning [-2147217900]
« on: October 10, 2018, 07:12:11 pm »
a college of mine gets the following waring when connecting to MSSQL DBs:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server [-2147217900]
Incorrect syntax near the keyword ‘RowCount’

He gets this warning for both SQL repositories he connects too, but other users do not see this warning.
Further on, the warning seem not to have impacts on the work within EA.

Any ideas?

+1 because I miss that feature e.g. to state if a diagram was already reviewed or not.

Well Geert, but views might also have a kind of status.

However Geert is right when saying, you should focus more on your requirement elements and there states. Your requirements are your requirements and you can have many diagrams showing the same requirements.

No, there are now build-in constraints in EA which disallow to connect ports of incompatible types. You have to take care about that.

General Board / Re: RTF Scale Diagrams over footer

So I think it is time to create a bug report.

General Board / Re: RTF Scale Diagrams over footer
« on: September 27, 2018, 01:48:49 am »
From my investigations I get the impression, that the scaling problem starts if one has more than one line in the footer.

Geert do you have footers with more than one line?
