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.

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

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.

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?

Bugs and Issues / Re: Enterprise Architect 8 not working Windows7 64

I've just tried EA on Windows 7 64-bit with 6GB of RAM and it works fine for me. It running on an HP DV6-3007TX laptop.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Strategic modelling - Strategic Map
« on: June 28, 2010, 09:53:59 am »
I've too wondered about this feature so I did a search on google and found this

The concept of strategy maps was introduced to the business world in 2001 by Robert S. Kaplan and David P. Norton as a means to illustrate and elaborate their earlier concept, the balanced scorecard. The standard reference for the strategy map is their book The Strategy-focused Organization.[1]. A further standard reference is their third book Strategy Maps, which provides numerous examples of the use of strategy maps in various organizations.

Hope that helps.

Bugs and Issues / Re: EA V8.0 - Doc Generation
« on: May 12, 2010, 02:20:47 pm »
Okay so since I first posted issue I've been too busy to look into this issue any further until now. What I have found is that the sections that were missing in my RTF document seemed to be caused by an integrity error. When I ran EA tool to fix these errors  the problem of missing elements disapeared. The weird part was that V7.5 didn't seem to mind and created the document in full but V8.0 didn't until the errors were fixed.
The differences between V7.5 and V8.0B856  generated RTF documents now seem to be minor with a few extra blank paragraphs and the odd centre justfied text that was originally left justified. I found when I created a new template it seems to work okay.

I've been snowed under with work since I posted this originally so haven't investigated this further yet nor have I reported it to Sparx. I wanted to verify whether it was a real issue or just one of those things that happens to only me.

Bugs and Issues / EA V8.0 - Doc Generation
« on: April 16, 2010, 01:45:06 pm »
Version 8.0 is now out and so I've just tried it on a copy of a production model. An EAP file.

Is there anyone out there who is experiencing doc generation issues with EA V8.0?
From the same EA model I've generated two RTF documents using V7.5 with V8.0 and then comparing them. I've generated these documents using the master/model document method and I'm experiencing the following issues;
  • diagrams missing
  • sections missing
  • Inconsistent indentation
  • Inconsistent justification
I'm in the process of investigating further but I'd be interested to know whether its just me. :'(

Bugs and Issues / Re: Recursive Use Cases do not work with RTF Repor
« on: April 02, 2010, 11:04:54 am »
A common trap for young players of EA - fell into it myself a few years ago. Try ticking the "child elements" item in the explorer view (left pane) of the template editor. That should enable the recursion.
Hope that helps.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Build 846 - notes crippled in RTF export

I logged the RTF problem with Sparx Systems and their reply is

"... We are aware of the issue and we are trying resolve this for build 848."

Hopefully build 848 isn't too far away.

I've just recently upgraded from build 845 to 847 and noticed the same problem where text is transposed in various forms. Its not just limited to the notes field either. I've observed it occuring in the name and alias fields as well. I can generate the RTF document several times without changing the model and observe different results each time.  Words appear to be transposed in several random ways. For instance the text "Priority outcome 2" in the model comes out as "2Priority outcome" in the RTF document.
The workaround provided by FreddoFrog seems to correct the problem. i.e.
Open RTF file in a text editor.
Replace all instances of "\rtlch" with "\ltrch"

Thanks Freddo

Of course the other workaround is to revert back to build 845.

Uml Process / Re: Alternative to DFD diagram with UML
« on: May 21, 2015, 12:39:56 pm »
Ah yes I remember DFD's from about 25 years ago. Processes, Data Stores, Data flow, event flows. Now its Components, Objects, Messages and information flow.
Depending on the level on which you want to go you could use
Component diagram where components represent systems and show information flow between them. I used to use this for showing how all the systems in the enterprise passed information to one another. I now use ArchiMate for that.

Or alternatively if you wan to show whats going on within a system you could use communication or interaction diagrams to show how the objects within the system talk with each other by passing messages.
