Suggestions and Requests / Re: Multiple Diagrams

And you can insert a diagram frame into another diagram since many versions of EA ago. I often use that trick for creating "landing pages" and overviews. Just treat the existing diagram in the tree as an element and drag it to an empty diagram. Then add other diagrams as you need.

I just released chapter 6 of the book "Teach Yourself Enterprise Architect in Ten Days". Currently, I am writing the next chapters.

https://leanpub.com/EA-in-10-days
(it is also available bundled with my first book on EA, at an even lower price)

The price increases every time a new chapter is released, but updates stay free.

So you can benefit the low price now but still get the whole book once it is ready. Enjoy!

Final trick on what MDG Technologies are and how to repair a seemingly lost MDG Technology.

Fifty Enterprise Architect Tricks now contains 80 tips and tricks. It was written for EA versions below 10.x. Since version 10.x brings lots of changes to EA, I will have to rework the book significantly.

Currently, I am busy writing another book on EA which is adapted to version 10.x. This book is more of a beginner's guide to EA. When I am finished writing this book called "Teach Yourself EA in Ten Days", I will concentrate on Fifty EA Tricks.

Just added tip number 4 to the third bonus chapter. It offers you four good reasons to add metatypes to your element definitions when you create your own toolbox. And of course, it tells you how to do that.

PS. Did you already download a free sample of the new book? It's available at https://leanpub.com/EA-in-10-days

Just released a new version of the book Fifty Enterprise Architect Tricks, with a third tip in bonus chapter 3.

Important note:

SparxSystems has decided to release version 10 of Enterprise Architect, with significant changes to the user interface and functionalities of EA. This means I will have to rework the book Fifty Enterprise Architect tricks.

On the other hand, I keep on getting requests for another book on Enterprise Architect. Requests for an easy to read, easy to bring into practice introduction for new users.

I have decided to write such a book. It is called "Teach Yourself Enterprise Architect in Ten Days". The first chapter (of 10) is ready. A preview including the introduction and the first chapter is available for free at the Leanpub website (https://leanpub.com/EA-in-10-days).

This does not mean I will let current readers of Fifty Enterprise Architect down:

  • I will by all means finish the third and final bonus chapter during the following weeks, before the release of the official version of Enterprise Architect
  • All readers of Fifty Enterprise Architect Tricks get a significant discount on the new book
  • When the new book is ready, I will start adapting Fifty Enterprise Architect Tricks to the new EA version

Thanks for the comment! Just to be sure, this book is in simple & plain English. There is another book about EA in Japanese, but that one is sold out.
