Docked Window (Feature) Tab Color Bars - How to Eliminate
« on: October 17, 2020, 03:28:29 am »
EA 15.2 has introduced colored lines / colored bars at the bottom of the tabs for the various docked windows.

Has anybody discovered how to disable those colored bars?

These are NOT internal tabs which can be slightly modified from the Application Look dialog (Start > Desktop > Visual Style).

Thank you for your assistance.

Play with the visual styles.

The colored tabs only occur in one (or a few) style(s)

Thanks Geert,

I'll explore the other style options.  I have the one I like because it does not automatically scroll the horizontally.  I'm too old to be chasing content across the screen.  I see some completely color the tabs (actually kind of nice).  I'll discover which works best for me.

Thank you qwerty,

I crafted it a number of years ago while awaiting a model import and merge.

I guess it was a big one ;-) Or you are a great artist. Or both...

Our primary model runs around 1GB.  Baselines and old data run it up to between 1.2 and 1.5 GB.  Then we trim it down to around 800MB.  My next objective is to setup reusable asset service where, I think, we can host the baselines separate from the data.  You should have seen it when we we had change tracking enabled.  Never try to import a large XMI with change tracking enabled.  That may have been EA 11 or 12 at the time, but overnight was not enough time.

I think so. Audit sounds like a good idea. But in practice it does not really help. If shit happens you have to go back in your backups. Pinpointing the one who caused it does not repair the damage. And it's a waste of time. If someone doesn't get the job done you recognize that in different ways and can take measures. So the only ones profiting in audit are hard disk vendors. (And eventually consultants having time to doodle while doing XMI transfers xD.)
