Suggestions and Requests / Add tagged value support in Diagram Filters
« on: January 29, 2015, 03:32:34 am »

I need to apply filters on a number of diagrams based on the tagged value in elements or connectors.
Would it be possible to have a list of predefined tagged values added to the available fields so we can define a value to filter on?
e.g. if I create an enum TV "category" with possible values as cat1, cat2, cat3, and apply this TV on my classes and associations, I could easily hide/show only cat1, cat2, etc.

Could this be added to the next build of EA?


Suggestions and Requests / Additional Security permissions
« on: February 21, 2015, 03:21:40 am »
When you use the EA Security with the "Require User lock to Edit" option disabled and give the Lock Elements permissions to users, I found the following "glitch":

With the admin account, I lock a model to a specific group (GroupA). This way users of GroupA can work on this model.
A GroupA user who has the Lock Elements permission can lock e.g. a diagram to himself/herself. I find this pretty cool so concurrency is possible within a group.
The issue I found is that this same user could change the lock to Full or No Lock -> from then any user with the Lock permission can change the lock on this element, diagram or package.

I think it would be useful to define one permission for each lock type : No Lock, Full Lock, User Lock, Group Lock.
So I'd give users of GroupA the User & Group lock so they cannot create or change a package with No Lock or Full Lock.


Suggestions and Requests / Extend "Link to Element feature" to Connector
« on: August 06, 2014, 10:55:48 pm »

I find very useful associating fields from a UI illustration with class' attributes via dependency links + Link to Element feature enabled.

However when you have associations with other classes instead of using attributes, there is no way of associating an association end/role with a UI field.

Would it be feasible to create a similar Link to Connector feature?

Suggestions and Requests / Preview element when adding to a diagram
« on: April 29, 2014, 12:28:32 am »

When you drag/drop an existing element from the Project Browser to the current diagram, an icon is displayed before releasing the mouse button to add the element. It lets you choose where to add the element.
Would it be possible to show what the element, e.g. a class, interface looks like before it is added to the diagram? (some kind of preview)


The specification manager should provide the same sorting and grouping functions based on the active fields as all other reports in EA (e.g. search results, package list view, etc.)


I started to use EA11 Specification Manager to create new requirements. As I have a UML profile with stereotyped requirements, I need to show and update the tagged values ( inherited from the stereotype).

Could tagged values be added to the Field Chooser list?


Suggestions and Requests / Search in Compare Baseline view
« on: April 29, 2014, 01:18:54 am »

When I run a comparison between the model and a file (XMI) in the package baselines, I cannot run a simple search e.g. to find a deleted activity in the baseline results based on its name.
Could a Search similar to the Project Browser search be implemented in the baseline?


Suggestions and Requests / Set Run State on a selection of instances
« on: April 18, 2014, 06:49:10 pm »
Would it be possible to set property values on a selection of instances, rather than having to do it on an individual basis?

Can this be implemented as an enhancement?


Suggestions and Requests / Add property values to the Element Browser
« on: April 17, 2014, 07:43:16 pm »
When managing instances and parts, you can set property values.
Could we have them listed in the Element Browser so they can easily be accessed/deleted?


Suggestions and Requests / Set default values for diagram properties
« on: March 13, 2014, 09:59:25 pm »

It would be nice to change the default values on the diagram properties for future diagrams created in Enterprise Architect, e.g. under General, Diagram, Elements, Features, and Connectors tabs.
In the diagram tab, I could for instance disable "Show Diagram Details" & "Show namespace" for all future diagrams to be created in the model.

this could be set via the Tools menu > Options : Diagram -> "Default Properties"

what do you think?


Suggestions and Requests / Add Package in the Field Chooser list (search)
« on: February 08, 2014, 12:01:38 am »
When I run a search on my project (ctrl-F > extended or simple), I'd like to see and group my results by the package name. Could this field be added in the Field Chooser list?


Suggestions and Requests / Create multiple connectors from a selection
« on: September 26, 2013, 06:37:14 pm »

It would be really handy if we could create the same type of connector from a selection of element to a target element.

process :
- select the elements e.g. 5 classes you need to link to a main class via an aggregation
- press a key e.g. ctrl, alt... => result the quick linker arrow is displayed on all selected elements
- draw a link from either quicklinker to the main class, select the link type (e.g. Aggregration to Whole) => result: 5 aggregation links are created from each class to the target class

this could be useful for many diagrams : link all use cases to a single actor or vice versa, link several activities to a gateway...

What do you think?


Suggestions and Requests / Revert to previous manual order
« on: August 30, 2013, 04:57:48 pm »

It is possible in the Project Browser to change the sorting order of the elements displayed within a diagram using the green up & down arrows.
Once you run the Reset Sort Order, you revert back to the alphabetical sorting.

Feature request : once you have your "manual sorting order", could EA save this order before applying the alphabetical order, so we would have a new command available : Apply the previous manual order -> the original order for all elements that still exist within this package (based on the GUID) would be applied, and all new elements would be by default placed at the end of the list, for the user to sort manually.

I can provide an illustration of the requirement if needed


Suggestions and Requests / Image library only supports bitmaps
« on: May 07, 2013, 05:10:17 pm »

When I add PNG files to the image library, they're automatically converted in the bitmap format.
As a result I lose the transparent property of my PNG image in EA.

Would it be possible to resolve this issue in a future build of EA?



The CSV export/import with requirement or classes can be useful to change the elements title, notes, and create new ones via Excel.
However if I use classes or interfaces, I cannot update or create attributes or operations since those aren't exported.

Could this CSV export be improved to have those added?
Could it export directly in an Excel file to avoid the cumbersome CSV import in Excel?
