General Board / Re: Object Instances and 'Show Composite Diagram'
« on: December 12, 2017, 09:11:30 am »
Just drag the diagram as frame onto the element's diagram, enlarge it and drag the diagram frame so it's inside the element.

You might want Space Bar/Common/Boundary. But the title will always be centered.

You always can use Repository.Execute. The question is: why would you want to do that?

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: GUID of a diagram
« on: December 12, 2017, 01:29:57 am »
I use as guid-search this query:
select * from t_object where ea_guid like '*<Search Term>*'

With that you search in the elements, so no wonder you get only packages. (It's a bit like the drunken man searching the lost keys for the house under the street light - not because he lost them there, but because the light is better. LOL)

To find diagram guids you need something like

Code: [Select]
select * from t_diagram where ea_guid like '*<Search Term>*'

I'd guess that Archimate makes use of shape scripts. The name can not be moved except by using a shape script.

You should as well report that as bug (use form below in the Support section).

As a quick solution: (save/) clear EA's registry and try to start. If that fails you might need to re-install EA.

Of course. Mixing API and direct database is the best way to shoot yourself in the knee.

Basically your assumption is correct. Did you a) reload the diagram and b) verify with a query that the UPDATE succeeded?

45 degrees, to be exact. Definitely not comfortable but nature erased the pain somehow.

General Board / Re: Linking a Logical data model to database builder model
« on: December 07, 2017, 09:45:52 am »
I have to concur. I was pretty excited the first time using model transformation. But after a short time I noticed that those traces are more like Shelob's spider webs. I do no longer use model transformation and rather maintain CIM, PIM and PSM as self-standing - just linked through the power of human brains.

Turn on security. You need the key which has been delivered with the license. Once turned on you can create access groups with various rights.

Did you also move away from MS Office when they introduced the Ribbon?

I think the ribbon is a bogus excuse for something else.

Geert

PS. In version 13 there is a "search command" feature that you can use, try it.
I use Office very seldom [comments about quality/usability have been censored by myself]. But since introduction of the ribbon is use it even less. Probably less times than fingers are left on my left hand.
