Note accessing tagged values in V14 is a little more difficult.
How so? I saw another complaint about this earlier today. As with yours, it didn't describe why it is more difficult.

I don't think the tagged values window changed in version 14. The general properties changed so that there are less different places where you need to access properties. The profile tagged values are included with that, so it should be easier than previous versions to access them.
Took me ages to find how to get the tagged values window back up after installing V14 because enabling it had moved and it wasn't obvious where it had gone.
Found it now so all good.

Don't have that problem.
Have you ticked the PK and Not Null checkboxes for the attribute?

Build 1423 seems to be working okay now. I note that V14.1 beta has been release with some archimate fixes.
The biggest obstacle is that they've changed where things are in the UI so it can be a little bit frustrating.
We usually get two or three members of the team to trail blaze and try out the new versions for 2 or 3 weeks so they can assist the others when they migrate over.

You can hide the relationship in a the diagram you don't want to show it on.
Right click on the relationship and from context visibility>hide

now many things are spread all over
Really interesting that you would say that. There were something like 50 different dialogs that were available in different ways for different types that have all been unified into the docked properties window. So, what you are complaining about was exactly what that UI re-work was intended to improve.
You can't please all the people all the time.

Whilst I can see some of the benefits of the new UI I do empathise with the frustration of trying to find stuff in the new interface knowings something is there but not being able to find it because its disabled by default. Maybe the answer is as simple as  enabling notes by default.

Try selecting the element and opening the features window using start tab> Properties> Features or press F9

The traceabililty window doesn't have columns or a header to adjust sorting.

Unfortunately, there is no defined order for items shown in that view.

Oh yeah was was thinking of the relationships window. My bad  :(

Concur with Nizam a script to remove existing tagged values.
There is a script in the topic url below to add tagged values which could be modified to remove tagged values.

Pre-requist: You'll need to have skills in JavaScript.

In V14 click on the header of source or target column and it cycles through [no order | alpha numeric| reverse alpha numeric] following the standard for windows apps.

Concur with Geert.
You'll notice Sparx EA is installed by default in the folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\Sparx Systems" so that kind of gives it away. 64 bit programs are installed in "C:\Program Files"

Ver.14 vs. Ver13.5 - We are all still on 13.5 and per my recommendation, we will be upgrading only one user and evaluating changes to features and existing diagrams, just like we did for 12 to 13.
Note accessing tagged values in V14 is a little more difficult.

As just a side note and possible bug/issue I tried adding my tagged values to a few diagrams that contained only business process icons (representing a group of related processes) by selecting all of them at once and adding the tagged values. At first glance it seemed to work but for one tagged value type Check List, where all tick boxes where checked off resulting in a Complete text value, they changed to 1, 1, 1, 1 when I logged back into the EA project file.
Yeah you can only see tagged values for one element so you would added to only one even though you had selected multiple elements. Probably the one first one you selected

Is it possible to edit the existing BPMN 2.0 MDG and add my stereotype there? I started researching that but had to shelve it for now.
I guess you could modify the MDG technology as is just xml file so you could hack the BPMN 2.0. MDG located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Sparx Systems\EA\MDGTechnologies\BPMN 2.0 Technology.xml

Open the file with text editor and search for the 'Stereotype' tag then find the next 'tagged values' tag. Copy one the the tag names and add your new one.
<Stereotype name="BusinessProcess" .../>
<TaggedValues>
<Tag name= ... />

You then need to copy the file to some place all users can access and point Sparx EA to that using the advanced options. You need to figure a way not to have conflicts with the original BPMN 2.0 mdg. Easiest way is to just rename it to BPMN 2.0 Technology.bak located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Sparx Systems\EA\MDGTechnologies\ for all users or simply delete it.

General Board / Re: Modelling security and security classification

However that being said the Risk Taxonomy MDG looks like it might be better suited so I'd be tempted to use that rather than shoehorn it into ArchiMate notation.
The most important thing is to understand the metamodel for your security group and the viewpoints they need - find some examples and use them for guidance

I created a MDG for the ArchiMate notation and the original methodology it is based on.  I just have to find where I put them :-)
MDG for the ArchiMate - Me too which I created back in 2007 before it was available in Sparx EA. Still using an updated version of it today :)

However the official ArchiMate Standard does not have those risk taxonomy types defined. The easiest option would be to use the Risk Taxonomy MDG that comes with Sparx EA.

May be you should consider making use of reviews, discussions, base lining and enabling audit.

Yes you can use Archimate to manage enterprise risk and security. I use ArchiMate already so I use the paper by the open group which provides details on how to do this Ref W172. There was an earlier one W150 mapping it to ArchiMate v2.1
Here is a link to the latest
https://publications.opengroup.org/w172

You just have to map (crowbar) the elements on to Archimate
Threat Agent -> Actor
Threat Event -> Business Event
Loss Event ->  Business Event
Risk->Assessment
Control Objective -> Goal
Vulnerability-> Assessment
Security Requirement-> Requirement
Security Principle -> Principle
Control Measure -> Requirement
Asset at Risk -> Resource
Implemented Control Measure->Business Service, Application Service, Technology Service
Security Domain-> Group
