Archimate stereotype icons visibility
« on: December 21, 2020, 10:44:45 am »

Does anyone know how to hide/suppress the element stereotype icons in an archimate diagram?
I've de-selected Features>Show stereotypes and Elements>Use stereotype icons and Elements>Show Element Stereotypes to no effect.

I'm afraid, skiwi, as Boss says...  "icons ain't icons".  AFAIK, ONLY the base UML icons can be suppressed by these methods.  The other "icons" are "decorations" and so aren't affected.

I used to make the line and fill colours the same to make the icons disappear until they provided custom draw style.
You can now enable custom draw styles and represent archimate elements with pretty much any any shape without icons.
Well there are two options to create the same result of making the icons disappear.
Merry Christmas.

Happy to help
:)

Thanks, I'd found the first option, but I'll investigate the second
