I confirm that the Reload button doesn't always work (it didn't yesterday)

I noticed in some occasions that EA no longer takes into account updated VBScripts and runs a "cached" previous version of it.
This can happen when I often change a number of scripts, or when I often re-run Reference Data imports, containing my scripts.

It's only when EA is restarted that the right code is run.

Is there any way to prevent that?

Bugs and Issues / Align Package and Class elements
« on: April 06, 2017, 09:07:25 pm »
I found a weird bug in aligning elements on a diagram with EA 13.

In a class diagram, I select packages and classes (classes shown within packages) to align vertically -> clicking on the button (LAYOUT > Alignment > Align Vertically) doesn't do anything.
Using the right click on the selection and select  Align Vertically moves them to the left -> seen both in EA 13 and 12.1
I would expect the packages and classes to be aligned vertically altogether.

Suggestions and Requests / Select scripts in the Export Reference Data
« on: April 06, 2017, 09:02:19 pm »
It would be very useful to have the option to select the Script Groups to export when running Export Reference Data with Automation scripts enabled.
I often need to push custom scripts to my client in this file ; however my EA project often have other groups that are automatically included. Hence I have to re import to XML in a blank EAP and delete the unwanted groups.

The MDG could be an option once it maintains the script group type which it doesn't do currently (e.g. Diagram, Package script types are lost when published via an MDG)

Uml Process / Specification manager and Boolean tagged values
« on: February 09, 2017, 02:04:46 am »

I'm using EA13 and displayed a tagged value in the specification manager.
It's a boolean so I can choose between True & False. It displays ok in the spec management but it cannot be changed. I can only edit standard text field tagged values.

Should I submit a feature request?


I submitted the action pins direction as a feature request.
I think it would combine well with BDD/IBD where ports direction is shown provided flow properties are used.


It works, thanks Helmut!

Note: this option is only available in EA13


I'm working on a SysML activity diagram and cannot achieve the following:
- I created an action of type callbehaviour and selected an activity -> is there a way to display the classifier i.e. the activity name or does it require an enhancement?
- I created action pins and set the direction as input & output for each. Is there a way to display the direction with an arrow? (it's available on other SysML tools)


General Board / Re: PermissionID Description
« on: February 07, 2017, 08:34:58 pm »

I added the permissions introduced in EA13 to the list, see
-> Edit Scripts, Run Scripts, Configure Project Prerequisites

Note that the last permission is missing from d

QWERTY, please feel free updating it in Inside EA book


Given the BDD on the following url:

I'd like to be able to show on SystemBlock within the properties compartment
partA : BlockA [1]
partB : BlockB [1]

General Board / EA13 image assets
« on: January 27, 2017, 12:40:57 am »

I looked at the image assets introduced in EA13.
It's very useful since I have a number of projects where we had to organize images, which is a pain with the Image Manager.

- When converting an image to an image asset, is this asset linked with all image instances on the various diagrams? It didn't seem to be fully the case when I did a number of tests (especially checking with the Find in all diagrams..)
- Can we have a feature to convert all current images, or a selection to image assets so the convert doesn't have to be done individually? If not, can it be achieve via the API / scripts?
- Can I safely add tagged values to image assets e.g. to apply a category value?
- Will the image library on  be released as images assets for EA13?


Hi Helmut,

I'm looking at displaying multiplicity on the BDD which I don't think is available.


Hi Helmut,

Tested hoTools 2.1.2 and I can  confirm that it adds ports to the parts on the SysML IBD.
Very useful :)



I defined a SysML block definition diagram with my main block and parts via compositions. A role name + multiplicity is defined on each composition
As a result a properties compartment shows up on the block with the associated role + block name

Other SysML modelling tools also display the multiplicity; could this be displayed via an option?
