Bugs and Issues / Re: Archimate element instances - names and icons?
« on: June 08, 2011, 10:22:04 am »
Curiosity has gotten the better of me so I have to ask. If an object is an instance of a class what is an instance of a Function called?   [smiley=huh.gif]

Not 100% sure what you are trying to achieve but I can try and explain whats happening. The archimate function is mapped on to an activity and stereotyped as an "ArchiMate_Function" which has a shapescript that gives you the archimate icon. When you create an "instance" you are actually creating a UML action with no name that has a classifier of the archimate function. The name is blank as you have to supply a new name. i.e. if you create an instance of  a Human Classifier you need to name it "David".
The shapescript applies to the UML activity stereotyped as  "ArchiMate_Function" but there is no shapescript for the instance which is actually a UML action. If you want to show the instance with the Archimate Icon you should create a stereotype "ArchiMate_Function" for an action and copy the shapescript.
Well hope that helps.  :)

Bugs and Issues / Re: Project Browser Disappeared in EA 7.5

Seems a bit drastic to re-install EA. For future reference you can use the workspace layouts to return to basic layout.
In V8.0 go to menu view>workspace layouts. Think it is similar in V7.5 just a bit more basic.
TIP: When you have layout you want save it as a custom workspace layout so you can return to it should you accidentally change it.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Version 9, Build 904 Crashes
« on: May 20, 2011, 08:54:26 am »
Sounds like it might be some weird environment problem so as Simon M  suggests you should raise a bug report and provide Sparks with as much info as you can.
i.e.
  • Version, build and Edition of Enterprise Architect
  • License mechanism - float or fixed
  • Operating system version, service pack & hot fixes
  • Hardware details such as make & model,  processor, ram, etc

As the problem occurs right at startup its possible that it might be something like the floating license mechanism.  :-/
The V9 demo I tested uses a fixed license.

I downloaded the trial version of EA V9.0 last night.
It installed fine on Windows 7 Home Edition 64-bit, iCore 5, 6GB RAM and ran fine without any problems for a couple hours.

Is it possible you guys who are having problems are running in a corporate environment where the system admins have tinkered with the operating system for one reason or another and broke it? :-/

I have now used EA 9 (build 904) for some hours mainly checking features we use in some of our larger models. So far all worked as expected - I only onw problem when I tried to generate a huge report as a PDF directly. I got the error message 'run out of memory' ....
I have also experience the out of memory problem when running reports on large models. Funny enough I fixed it by getting more memory.  :)

Viki,
Not sure why Skiwi has just quote you and not provided answers - unlike him.  :(

1. I have a class diagram and when I drag an element to the diagram its name contains the folder in which the element is stored. It looks like this: folder_name::class_name - how do I disable it? I want only the class name to be displayed.
Try and open the diagram properties by right clicking on the diagram background, select the Diagram tab and uncheck the "Show Namespace".
Quote
2. Is there a way in which when I mark an element in a diagram it automatically shows it to me in the hierarchy tree?
Yes you can be selecting the element then right clicking to get the context menu then select find>in project browser. Or you could try the shortcut keys Alt +G

Hope that helps  :)

Bugs and Issues / Re: Gen.RTF looses indent in EA 8 (it worked in EA
« on: February 16, 2011, 10:34:12 am »
I've had similar problems with RTF templates. Found by recreating the template in EA V8.0 from scratch it rectified most of the problems. Not an ideal solution I know  :(

Did you manage to get this problem fixed or a alternatively did you find work around? I've just started experiencing this exact problem with an RTF report that has a lot of images in it. It last worked with 64 pages and after I added a few more images now I'm getting that ran out of memory message.
I've also tried to expand the memory on a 2GB Vista machine with and extra 4GB Memory boost USB drive and it didn't fix the problem either.
I'm using EA V7.5 B 850 on a Vista machine with 2GB RAM

Bugs and Issues / Re: Report Generator runs out of memory
« on: September 08, 2010, 05:32:54 pm »
Okay for future reference I found a work around and a fix.
The problem of running out of memory was experienced on my system at work. A core 2 processor and 2GB RAM running Vista with EA version 7.5 Build 852.

Workaround:
Generate the document in pieces and then stitch it back together again in MS Word or Open Office using file include.

Fix
Try running it on the latest version of Enterprise Architect with more memory on Windows 7. The version of EA I used was V8.0 Build 862. I watched the physical memory usage go up to 3.2GB RAM which kind of explains why my 2GB system at work didn't cut the mustard.

NOTE
I did try increasing the RAM using a USB key and Vista's memory boost feature but I still got the out of memory message even with an extra 4GB on the system at work.

Hope that helps someone who might be experiencing the same problem.

Did you find a solution to this problem. I'm experiencing the exact problem "ran out of memory" with the RTF generator.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Visio import (with MDG Tech plugin) crashes EA
« on: August 31, 2010, 08:03:46 pm »
I had a similar problem importing Visio 2003 diagrams a while back (3yrs+). I recall the visio MDG importer didn't seem to work properly with SQL server repository but did with and EAP file. The work around was to import it into and EAP file then export the result as XMI and then import into a SQL Server repository.
What repository database are you using?
