Suggestions and Requests / Discussion Link in Menubar
« on: April 29, 2004, 09:03:27 am »
Is anyone besides me seeing what appears to be a jumbled mess where the "Discussion Forum" gif file is in the Web site's menu bar?

I can download the gif file and view it separately and it looks fine.  It's just not being rendered properly when I browse the site.  All other menubar items appear fine, and the Discusion Forum link works fine - it takes me to the forums.

Suggestions and Requests / Default destructor visibility
« on: March 15, 2004, 04:24:13 pm »
Release 720, Local Options|Object Lifetimes.  The last item under the Destructor section of the dialog reads "Default copy constructor visibility:".  

Is it the case that this is suposed to read "Default destructor visibility:" instead?  Appears this could be a copy/paste error from the above item, Copy Constructor.

Using build 720, I just found that when updating the Local Options|Code Editors settings, when I change the Default Database value, it wipes out anything I might have already populated for the paths to my code editors.  

Workaround is to select the Default Database field first, then go back and enter the code editors.

Seems like a minor new bug.

Suggestions and Requests / Error adding Test Type
« on: March 15, 2004, 03:43:45 pm »
When adding a Test Type, and entering values only for the Test Type, Description and Weight fields (no Note), receive an error dialog "DAO.database [3315], Field 't_testtypes.Notes' can't be a zero-length string.".  

The resolution is obvious to me, but this is different behavior than entering other types w/o a Note, such as the Roles types.

Suggestions and Requests / Sorted "Roles" List on Project Authors D
« on: March 15, 2004, 03:15:47 pm »
Minor nit...

On the Project Authors dialog, selecting the Roles pick list displays an unsorted version of the Roles.  However, when viewing this information on the Project Roles dialog, the Roles are presented in a nice, sorted grid.  

Is it possible to change the sort order (or enforce one) on the Project Authors|Roles pick list also.

General Board / 3.6/4.0 Side-by-Side Installation
« on: March 15, 2004, 12:10:50 pm »
Probably ignorance on my part, but isn't there a way to run EA 3.6 and the release version of EA 4.0 on the same machine?  Maybe install to different directories?

I was previously able to run 3.6 rel. 661 and 4.0 Beta 4 together, but as I'm installing the 4.0 rel. 720 (Release), I'm being prompted to uninstall the 3.6 installation.

I'd really like to have the ability to diagram using UML 1.x and 2.x, because for a while my clients will be in a transition phase between versions.  It appears that with the 4.0 release version, I'll no longer be able to use the two side-by-side.  Am I just wrong on this?

General Board / Resource History in Documentation
« on: July 31, 2003, 12:28:34 am »
Unable to locate info in the EA Help or Zicom references for this.  Hopefully it's not an obvious answer I've overlooked...

When creating .RTF docs for models, I notice that it's possible to have it print Assigned Resources for elements, including a table cell named Detail that includes:
- Task name
- The verbiage "History:"

I've figured out that I can right-click on an element and from the Project Mangement|Project Information menu item then manage the relevant resources and tasks.  

My question is can I also, somewhere in that menu or elsewhere, add history associated to the task(s), for status reporting purposes?  Or is it the case that the "History:" text is automatically added into the Details field merely as a convenience, and I need to manually add history for the task?

A hypothetical example table follows for reference:



[td]Resource[/td][td] [/td][td]Role[/td][td]   [/td][td]Time[/td][td]   [/td][td]Dates[/td][td]   [/td][td]Detail[/td]

[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Resource #1[/td][td]  [/td][td]Network Admin[/td][td]   [/td][td]Time: 1
%=25[/td][td]   [/td][td]8/1/2003 End: 8/8/2003[/td][td]   [/td][td]Add App Server to Domain
History: [/td]
[/tr]
[/table]


Thx, Dave
