General Board / Re: Link an User Interface element to Table/Column
« on: February 15, 2018, 10:53:37 am »
The reason being: the system needs to know which element you are selecting the feature in - the target or the source.

I was developing a long and detailed argument about this, but I don't have the time. Quickly, I think you have two requirements and you are saying that the very simple solution (the Virtual Connector End) for one requirement (show that element X in the top left of the diagram has a relationship with element Y far away in the bottom right of the diagram) should be the solution to a different requirement (I want to show different views of element X). For that requirement, one solution is to create instances of element X on your diagram and modify each accordingly.

General Board / Re: Security permission missing from user guide

This has been added to the Help.

It is a permission required to set up the selection of MDG Technologies that are mandatory, permitted or blocked for the project. See:

(The released Help topic does not mention the required permission, but it has also been added to the source that will be published at a later date.)

And actually it should be Configure Project Prerequisites. It is also required to set the minimum version and build of EA required for the model.

Bugs and Issues / Re: BPSim

I don't think that the BPSim facilities are available in the Professional edition. They are also dependent on installing the MDG BPSim Execution Engine.

Just hanging on to see qwerty's post count click over to 9000. Make it a good one, qwerty!

Two more days until Sinterclaus. Do the Belgians celebrate Sinterclaus? All those marzipan and sugar mice and pigs... my teeth are aching just thinking about them!

If you are posting to tonyabs, just note that he posted in February 2016. Although the information will, of course, be valuable to anyone having the same issues and finding the thread.

I have thought about permutations of the word 'Party' and Neil has made a few observations too; basically, I agree with Simon.  Your search would have to be set up like a spell checker to encompass all the conventions you might use in assigning element names (are you searching for just element names?) with capitalization, punctuation, non-alphabetic characters, use of phrases or single words etc.

You could try changing the search term to " Party " (put a space before and after the word). Or search just with a space before, then search just with a space after.

That's an interesting side-effect of the clone element functionality... in Uffe's case we will call it a feature. In the interests of it not becoming a bug, I won't follow Uffe's procedure!

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Diagram Memory - Recently Closed Diagrams

If you press F1 on the Start Page, you get Help on the page and that explains what the icons are. Sadly, I am not in a position to pick up your suggestion and run with it, but the idea has been floated with the designers (in the past) and some compromises are in the pipeline.

Doesn't the Recent portal ('window' icon on the Start Page) do that for you?

Ahhhh - so that was YOU in the news report of a gentleman taken from Southern Cross to St Vincent's Hospital with a broken nose, black eyes, cracked skull and broken ribs after shooting over the handle of a luggage trolly into a platform pillar when he inexplicably sprinted with said trolly into said pillar. It's taking you a while to learn, Paolo. I thought you might give up after the episode when you burned your feet in the fire after sneezing into your "floo dust" and blowing it back out into the lounge.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Help page Guidebooks currently contains no books

Most topics are longer than a display screen, so if someone doesn't want to read the topic but move to another, they won't see the message at the bottom of the topic. They might not even read the text even if the topic is short enough to display on one screen.  You have to label the Topics button as the thing to click on to see more topics. Calling it 'Topics' is not enough for some people.
