Animal Farm relationships...  Reflexive relationships are less functional than non-reflexive.  You should be able to Link to the appropriate Element Feature.  Reflexive relationships have always been the child with the "bend sinister" since EA began.  Isn't it time, they grew up?

Sparx Systems have replied that they have logged a Feature request.

I replied that I didn't log the issue under Features and Requests, but under Bugs and Issues,  It's a bug, !

In the absence of any formal definition of the various types of defects from Spar Systems, perhaps we users could agree amongst ourselves what these definitions should be so, at least, we are consistent.

Thoughts?

Yes, that sort of thing.  My machine is currently being rebuilt so I can't get at my current definitions.

I guess the Sparxians don't care. They have their own definition to fit.
