If you're running on OSX, are you:
  • also running Microsoft Office under Crossover? In which case you may encounter the same issues seen running script within Office as you do within EA;
  • or running Office for Mac? In which case, have Sparx stated MDG fo Office integrates with Office for Mac?

I don't these questions help, but I'd like to understand your experience too as I use a Mac at home.

I can't answer definitively, but it would make sense for the file to be imported to be used as a Sample when creating a profile: surely it's just reading it as an aid to creating a mapping in the (separate) profile file and therefore shouldn't need to write to the "Sample". Thus the sample could then be the source? But perhaps this isn't allowed, and could be why we're having a related problem - see this thread:,30337.0.html
Let's hope we get an answer  :)

Hi Stu_Cox
I have also failed to import the relationships between two types of thing, from an Excel spreadsheet.
It looks as though it's going to work in stepping through the dialogue windows (unlike the other thread:,30348.0.html).
And it looks as though it has worked in the import log output window.
But it simply fails to create objects in the browser.
In disbelief, we even exported the package to XMI and searched on the XML - and saw the items that should have been created! Reloading the package content has no effect.
In further disbelief, we searched on the items in the model and they came up in the search results, but "find in browser" does not work.
Now I've written all this down, I think we have a bug report!?!?
Time to submit one. I'll reference this thread and ask support to post a response here.
Cheers and Namaste!

All good, thank you. I prefer the reference card as it fits nicely below my monitor.
Hopefully they are all consistent even if not the same!  :)

Thank you - more good Karma :-)

I wonder if, 14 years on, anyone has found / made a list of EA shortcuts?

Fantastic Geert
In and around other calls on my time I'd got to:
SELECT Connector_Type, c.Name as "Relationship", os.Name as Source, od.Name as Dest, c.Notes as C_Notes, ps.Notes, pd.Notes
FROM t_connector c
inner join t_object os on os.Object_ID = c.Start_Object_ID inner join t_objectproperties ps on ps.Object_ID = os.Object_ID
inner join t_object od on od.Object_ID = c.End_Object_ID inner join t_objectproperties pd on pd.Object_ID = od.Object_ID

But I'd stalled as I realised I'd need some mechanism to insert the search term. Came back to the forum for it, and there it was!  :)
You've given me a great fish. Now, so that I can fish myself, can you point me at the table definitions and any help sources on e.g. the #WC#<Search Term>#WC# macro?
Many, many thanks.

I suspect you're right - so I'm now hunting for the definition of the tables I can search.
Wish me luck!

Using the Search Query Builder, when adding a filter, there is no option in the "Active Filter Set" drop down list for a relationship.
Is the only way to search the text within relationships to do it within an SQL search on the model?

Thanks Geert
A shame as there is at least one legitimate reason to do so.
Given Kudos!

I have exactly the same question, 11 years on. Was there ever an anwer for this?

Thank you. Therefore, this post might now enable me to say thank you!   ;)

Ah, I get it! I'm new and been really keen to show my appreciation to the people whom have been good enough to help. But can't. Now I see why.
I like Glassboy's idea of protecting long-standing members from impatient newbies possibly doling out negative Karma: and alongside I would like the site to allow new people to give positive Karma straight-off.

Hello Sunshine and Geert
I really appreciate both your replies.

As an aside, in respect of giving Karma I'd really like to do this for you both. But my IE9 on the Corporate network is neither rendering images nor showing a Karma link. Something required by the forum website is blocked by the Corporate network settings, and I have no way to override. To compensate, there is a real Karmic wave heading your way instead.

To the main subject: I've trialled the built-in roadmap (custom diagram, Roadmap options, use of legend to auto-colour segments on the roadmap items). Is there any metadata on the roadmap items that is used to determine the segment sizes, and/or is updated when the segment sizes are altered. Or is it all stored in the diagram?

Thank you very much,
