General Board / Edit Hyperlink in Element Note
« on: October 17, 2016, 10:56:33 pm »
How can you edit an embedded hyperlink to a selected element (e.g., the element's name has changed and the hyperlink's text is no longer correct?)
BTW: We have been asking about the automatic update of the hyperlinl's text for quite sometime... is this even being considered? Or is there a script workaround?

General Board / View AssociationClass in traceability window
« on: October 22, 2014, 01:17:52 pm »
Anyone know if there is away to see the related elements that are the target of the associationclass?

My example - have an Person => Role, and then a Stakeholder as the association-class linked to the Person/Role association.

It seems like there should be someway to click on "stakeholder" and see that it can be traced to both "role" and "person".



General Board / Simple Boundary - Align text at bottom
« on: September 22, 2011, 09:33:56 am »
I seem to remember the ability to align the label associated with a simple boundary (e.g. with use case diagrams) to the left, center, right, and top and bottom.

Can't seem to find it anymore (recently upgraded to 9.1)

qwerty - I tried to send you a message but got an error that you could not be found?
I followed that link on your posting and purchased your Inside EA book!  Really looking forward to diving into it :) I have a working knowledge of the tables but really need to gain a deeper understanding.

Been using EA since version 5. :)

Look forward to talking with you.

Here are links to the notation, etc.
I am currently working on a proof-of-concept using VBScript and stereotyped elements. Previously I created a prototype solution that loosely followed the SBVR 1 standard. This time I am attempting to follow the standard more closely.

My first goal is implementing Annex H stereotypes (within the constraints of EA - example using a shape script to support the underling of Individual Concepts; e.g. Switzerland : country).

I would appreciate a discussion on how we might want to move forward with this as an on-line collaborative effort.

I can be reached at (Maryland, USA)

I am currently working on implementing the OMG Structured Business Vocabulary and Rules model and functionality within EA.

Just wondering if anyone else is pursuing this?  ;D

Also I thought using a tree line style for the associations - infers an OR relationship?

General Board / Using structured tagged value types in stereotypes
« on: October 07, 2011, 05:13:07 am »
I have defined a strucutred tagged value type using a predefined tagged value type (checklist). I can add it successfully to an existing element, but I can not seem to:

Add it to the definition of a custome stereotype (e.g. Add as a tagged value to the class... I can do that, but once the stereotype is exported as a profile it does not show up (either stereotype's attributes or as a tagged value).

I believe I was previously able to do this with no problem under earlier versions of EA?

Any ideas or similar experience?

Thanks Geert!

Hey got a new gig as lead for requirements at a small shop! They have just started using EA again :) Thus my reason for my own 9.0 upgrade.

As always,

Using Property window is easier way.
(Main menu | View | Element Property)

Nope, just shows the same menu as the element properties (compare a class element vs, a use case element...) but thanks for the help!

General Board / How to indicated ABSTRACT Use Case in 9.0?
« on: August 22, 2011, 01:13:38 am »
I am new to version 9.0 (experienced in 7.5) and can't seem to find how you indicate a Use Case is abstract (there is NOT a 'details' branch as there is under a class - detail: abstract)


Bugs and Issues / Unable to Cut & Paste in Script IDE

Upgraded to latest release - anyone else having C&P issues when editing scripts?

Bugs and Issues / Tagged Values - Resynch not adding missing tag
« on: August 02, 2011, 12:54:02 am »
Running V9 and when I change a stereotype, save it as a profile, then reload the profile and resynch the "new" stereotype it no longer propogates the changes (was at 7.5).

Similar problem if you assign a Enum type before you define it. IF you do that then the drop-down will not be active when you are using the tagged value (previous behavinsor) but you simply correct it by going back to you stereotype force the connection by choosing the created enum from the list, save profile, import, resynch problem solved. This in NO longer the case.

BIG ISSUE for me as I can have hundreds on classes using a stereotype and now have no way to add new tags?!

BTW I had Inside EA, now today I picked up your other three!  :)
Have to print them out and start reading!

Right now vbscript but I am flexible :)
