Bugs and Issues / Vertical scrolling

The project browser reacts to vertical scrolling. The diagram area doesn't.  ???

Bugs and Issues / Exporting a statemachine diagram
« on: July 14, 2016, 07:55:35 am »
When I create a statemachine, EA creates a diagram with a frame of the statemachine inside. I can place states only inside this frame. Now, when I export this diagram, EA adds a second diagram frame. WOT? And how can I get rid of that? Soooo simple. Create a new statemachine diagram besides the bad one. Delete the diagram frame inside! Copy/paste the contents of the bad diagram without (!) the frame. Trash the bad one. Write a complaint in the forum :P

Bugs and Issues / Deletion without confirmation
« on: July 13, 2016, 05:51:53 am »
I was just trying to duplicate an operation with Ctrl-D. But guess what: it did not duplicate. It deleted the current operation. Without confirmation. Am I wrong in thinking that a tool doing a destructive delete without confirmation and without the possibility to undo is simply broken?

Suggestions and Requests / Deprecation warnings
« on: July 11, 2016, 08:37:13 pm »
EA still uses some constructs which were (silently) deprecated in newer Superstructures editions. One example is the Nesting connector (see http://www.uml-diagrams.org/nested-classifier.html; note in the last 3 paragraphs of the section). I think it would be a good idea to have ways getting them out of sight. E.g. marking them somehow in the toolboxes and/or have options to disable deprecated elements/connectors.

General Board / New Beta
« on: June 03, 2016, 08:09:08 pm »
Before downloading that: can I turn of those ribbons? They were already a crippled concept in various Windoze applications. I definitely do not want to see them anywhere. Especially not in EA.

Bugs and Issues / RefGuid and stereotype
« on: May 05, 2016, 07:34:42 pm »
I tried to define a TV with
Code: [Select]
Type=RefGUID;
Stereotypes=Stereotype1;
just like in the help. But it does not limit in any way to Stereotype1. Rather it allows to select anything.

Bugs and Issues / Generalization notation
« on: April 18, 2016, 04:05:02 pm »
A class shown on a diagram without the class from which it is specialized is shown with the name of the general class in italics top right of class compartment. Now I have fostered UML 1.5 and 2.5 but could not spot any reference which rectifies this notation. So I guess, this is a bug?

Bugs and Issues / Online Help quirks
« on: February 11, 2016, 11:19:22 pm »
Already having said, that I'm not very happy with the online help variant. Now I have another issue which might well simply be caused by my age. The contrast of the index at the left is very, very poor. I can not read it unless I zoom in (luckily with my Mac that's quite easy). So Sparxians, could you please hold your feat under the table when your marketing guys ask for a new CI and just keep the contrast in the browser at a level so handicapped people can also read what they need to read? Thanks a bunch!

P.S. Next time they are asking: send them back to Golgafrincham.

Suggestions and Requests / Entry of operations
« on: February 10, 2016, 02:46:37 am »
When you create a new operation, EA obviously can parse the parameter string. You can just paste the C++ parameter string as from the source and it will find names and types. So why not take that one step further and parse the whole signature? Assuming blanks in the name could lead EA to parse the string to find return type, name and parameters.

Similarly attributes could be treated.

Bugs and Issues / Adding operations/attributes
« on: February 10, 2016, 12:37:58 am »
I have ranted about this not too long ago, but as I've got into coding once more, I stumbled over this once again: when I add new operations and press the cursor down key (well, another EAUI I got used to) it places the cursor in the name field for the next operation below the bottom row. So strange, so fine. Now when I do the same with attributes, all entries are shifted one line down when I tab out of the name field (the first line is cleared for input). The cursor down does not work here.

So what? Were this two developer groups, where one sits in India and the other one in Tonga Tonga? Or was this intentional to confuse the users?

And another thing: the order of the attributes in the edit window is different to that in the project browse. It looks as if they are sorted alphabetically. Why? (No, the Sort Alphabetically is not switched on.)

q.

P.S. Now I remember. If you click the sort triangle in the name field, this is what you see. Of course, you do not see that this has been clicked somewhen in the past. EAUI, I love it  :P

P.P.S. Following I clicked various of the sort triangles. Seems you CAN distinguish whether they were clicked. So did I click all of them? ICR However, it happened that the input field appeared amidst the attributes. Well, ...

General Board / Reverse engineering C++
« on: February 09, 2016, 09:48:34 pm »
I almost never have used reverse engineering with EA except for databases. But now I have a little private project where I wanted to document the sources before going into code. Saying "Hey, I got EA. It can do that for me!" was my first thought and I fired it up. But disappointment struck at once. I get parse errors which are, well, as I expected :( EA-like.
Code: [Select]
There was an error parsing Z:\Marlin\Marlin\configuration_store.cpp  on line 96.  Unexpected symbol: void
There was an error parsing Z:\Marlin\Marlin\MarlinSerial.h  on line 122.  Unexpected symbol: )
...
This code is nothing extraordinary. The CPP compiles with no issues.

So what is the EA RE worth? Nothing at all in the end?

Bugs and Issues / Forum search not working
« on: January 23, 2016, 12:14:18 am »
I'm currently relocating the links I saved from the old forum and as already told I was not able to find most of them back. Now with the old links enabled I have a chance. But the search does not seem to work. What I discovered is that typing a word in the search text made an auto-completion (I had filled in the author before). I'm just guessing that there's some Java script running for that?! Anyhow, when clicking the search button I get no results at all. So far I was able to find back 10% (at best) by repeating the old threat title. 90% gave me zero results.

At the worst case I need to go back to where the thread was started in the forum to find it. Luckily with reducing the title to one word plus the author I got most of them so far.

q.

P.S. Probably the auto-completion in the text is not due to a Java script communicating with the Sparx server but due to a history stored in Safari (because I already use the search term unsuccessfully in the past).

P.P.S. the former highlight is no longer visible (e.g. http://sparxsystems.com/forums/smf/index.php/topic,23590.msg194214.html#msg194214)

P.P.S. on a side note: the time stamps were mangled. Eg. http://sparxsystems.com/forums/smf/index.php/topic,5375.msg124644.html vs http://www.sparxsystems.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?num=1383056444/0#6. This thread is one of those you will not find by entering the title in the search.

Discuss specific usage issues with other users. To report bugs and issues to Sparx Systems, use the Report a Bug link at the foot of this page.

But there is no such link. Same for Suggestions.

Suggestion: replace the bold text by the appropriate links.

Suggestions and Requests / IsOwned property
« on: August 10, 2015, 09:43:24 pm »
With UML 2.5 the IsOwned property had been introduced to replace navigable connectors. I (and obviously OMG) make extended use of the property. Unfortunately it is quite hidden in EA (expand Advanced, scroll way down...). I wished this was placed at a more direct place (under Detail).
