Hi!

I'm trying to edit a BPMN diagram written with a previous version of EA (I'm now on 14.1), and I'm unable to set new edge mounted start events to Error type. The list doesn't appear by default when creating them, nor does the BPMN section of properties appear.

Having opened other properties boxes, the BPMN properties eventually become visible, but Error is not one of the types available.

When looking at an error start type created not edge-mounted, the "Type" remains blank (as it doesn't include these either) and the eventDefinition start event parameter says Error.

The edge mounted start event does not have a "eventDefinition" property either.

Is this a bug, or has something been changed so that you can't create edge mounted errors flows?

There are no edge mounted (e.g. Boundary) start events in BPMN, only edge mounted intermediate events.
You should however be able to create one of type error. (Boundary Interrupting)

I just tried it in v15 and it worked for me.

Also very the version of BPMN used.
BPMN 1.0 does't mix well with BPMN 2.0

Thanks Geert! That worked great!

Makes perfect sense too - it's just it used to allow start events, and it therefore didn't occur to me to try an intermediate if it didn't work for start events.
