General Board / How to find a string in a Tag name or Tag value?
« on: July 01, 2014, 06:54:58 pm »
What I did:
I related a reference to a sequence diagram to a requirement (trace). I added a condition to that trace that is based on a change request outside EA. I added the change request ID as a tag-value to that trace relation.
I opened a find dialog and searched for that ID.

What I expected:
to get anyhow near to that trace relation.

What I got:
no result

I cannot think of a workaround.
What did I wrong?
Any idea for an alternate solution with the same intention appreciated:
Finding specifically conditioned requirement traces.

General Board / default linestyle
« on: June 26, 2014, 10:46:37 pm »
I really appreciate the improvement of working with the linestyle "orthogonal rounded". I wonder if it would be possible to make it my default linestyle, saving me the time to rightclick every relation.

Where can I change the default settings for linestyle from Direct to Orthogonal-Rounded?

General Board / Master is lost, how to create a new Master
« on: August 14, 2011, 06:37:45 pm »
I lost the Master to a Replica. How can I convert one of the Replicas to become the new Master?

General Board / Replica Master does not except Replica
« on: August 09, 2011, 04:51:34 pm »
I am pretty sure that the replica I worked on has been drawn from a certain master. Trying to synchronize the master tells me that the replica does not belong to the set of replicas.

Ok, does not matter much. Now I want to forget that master and like to declare the replica I worked on most as the new master.

Tried several things without success. Is there a knowledge base for this problem?

Kind Regards


General Board / Re: compound state
« on: July 03, 2011, 11:27:47 pm »
I do it this way: right-click the state that shall become a compound state, select Advanced, select Define Concurrent Substates, enter a name for each region.

Would like to know, whether this is the recommended way of doing.

General Board / Requirements Traceability
« on: June 20, 2011, 10:40:14 pm »
 I have got two models behaving different and I like to know why:

 It is about Reruirements, Use-Cases, and Components.

 In a diagram I have connected a Use-Case to some Requirements using a Realization association. In another diagram I connected a Component with a Use-Case also using a Realization association.

 In one model I can find the Requirements in the Tagged Values properties of the component, what is a needed service to me. It tells me, that the component is affected by this requirements.

 I did the same in another model but it does not have that trick. Could you think of, what could be different that hinders this Traceability service?

 Kind Regards


p.s. I am using EA 8.0.864

General Board / Re: How to hide Namespaces in all Diagrams?
« on: May 03, 2011, 02:19:57 am »
Thank you again, Frank

you made my brain working: Now I simply introduce a package for each refinement with the same name as the refined element. Than I move all elements of the refinement in that package, even the diagram that holds the refining elements.

As usual in EA the Composite link does not change. Navigation is preserved.

And: The Show Namespace property works now as I expected it with the direct refinement.

Kind Regards

Thank you for your reply, Frank.

If a bigger special parent interface extends several smaller genaral child interfaces, I found it easy to express this by de-composition (glad to found this in EA). I need to find a way to split wallpapers of associations (generalizations) to managable bunches of objects you are able to look at and discuss on. However, easy navigation between them is a must. Therefore I chose hierarchical decomposition because this is the semantics of complex interfaces to analyse. Also you are not able to predict, what interfaces will be split up in the future. Think about big projects, where this "decomposition" (you may call it "extentions") has 3, 4, 5 layers.

Would like to know your opinion about this.

To explain, what I mean I prepared a minimal model hosting nested interfaces.

In the children interface diagram I like to get rid of the Interface1:: prefixes from Interface2 and 3. If the nesting is deep, this gets unreadable.

Even the answer "This is not possible in version 8 of EA." would stop me from searching for a solution.

I have seen it ones to hide all "::" seperated parts of a name in an element showing only the most specific one, but I can not get it to work again with EA 8.0:

I have a lot of hierarchically sorted interfaces. On Class diagrams that are hosting interfaces as boxes, each name of the interface is preceded by all parent interfaces.

I unchecked "Show Additional Parents" and "Show Namespace" in the properties of diagrams but the huge list of parents still appear in each box.

Any idea what I miss here?

Thank you for help


General Board / image resolution in jpg or png
« on: February 24, 2011, 09:29:20 am »
Is it possible to enhance the quality of images exported with xmi in a pixel format such as jpg or png?

General Board / Re: Generate Diagram Images
« on: February 24, 2011, 08:45:03 am »
Finally I found out changing the binary of the jpg is safe and much easier. The print size is contained in the first bytes of a jpg file and set to 0 by EA. Many programs exposing jpg assume a default of 72dpi which leads to images bigger than a letter page. Exchanging the two zeros in x and y scaling by 120 fits the diagrams back on a page.

meanwhile I did a Gimp macro that is able to set the dpi to 120 in batch mode.

exporting XMI you may get all images as JPEG files. That is terrific!

JPEG files contain information about their print size.

Is it possible to change that? E.g. is it possible to go for 120 dots/inch instead of 72 - making the picture smaller but looking better?

Hi, Geert

I tried to follow the given link, but did not succeed. You need to log in. I have two accounts with Sparx, one I got on purchase, the other I created for this forum. None of them worked for me while I'm logged in here at the forum.

Do you have some other way of distribution for me?
