Set visible relations filter/sort by link type & stereotype
« on: January 15, 2020, 08:08:34 pm »
Set Visible Relations is a useful diagram feature to hide/unhide links.
It would be useful to add a way to sort results by link type or stereotype, and to filter & hide/unnhide e.g. all dependency links, or all "test" stereotype dependency links.

MANY years ago, not quite a decade, I asked for all of this...  you may find the original post here.  From the looks of it, you won't find it in any meaningful TODO list inside Sparx.

I published this week-end a new version (1.9.1) of eaUtils with an enhanced version of the Set Visible Relations: http://www.eautils.com/en/update-visible-relations.
I ran a few tests and it works well.

Please feel free to give it a try and can contact me if you have any feedback.
