1) When you create a table, before you can create columns you need to tell EA what DBMS you are modelling. EA is not opening a database connection, it's just trying to find out what you're doing.
2) The list of available types will depend on the DBMS you are modelling. That's why you need to let EA know.
3) Right-click a package in the Project Browser, Add Diagram, Select From: Extended, Diagram Types: Data Modeling. If Extended isn't available, open the MDG Technologies dialog and enable "Core Extensions".

It sounds like you're invoking the appeal to authority logical fallacy.  Just because they are academics isn't a guarantee they're not abusing the language.
There's evolution and there's genetic engineering ;)

Bugs and Issues / Re: Problem to check-in to PTC

What are these tags for?
$ea_attsclassified holds the GUID of every attribute typed by the current class. $ea_oprsclassified holds the GUID of every operation whose return value is typed by the current class.

tried passing a RGB representation of the color CLng(255-0-0)
I suspect the only reason that works is because it evaluates to 255 minus zero minus zero = 255. For an RGB representation, use red + green x 100hex + blue x 10000hex.

I haven't looked at Geert's script, but what you may need to do is set the .Stereotype value to blank, then set the .Stereotype value to "AMT_DT_GDT_GenericDiagramTable_Object". Otherwise EA might assume the stereotype hasn't changed (because it has the same name) so won't go looking for a new profile ID.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Hyperlink to element in diagram

Enter the Name or Alias of your target element in the hyperlink's Notes field.

I had never seen this functionality before now so I don't know what happens if there is more than one element with the same name or alias, or if the element appears on more than one diagram. That can be left as an exercise for the reader... ;)

General Board / Re: Adding Memos as a MDG

There's a quicker way: add an attribute to your stereotype class with initial value set to '<memo>'.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Shapescript vs Local diagram rendering
« on: May 02, 2017, 01:21:29 pm »
Long story short, I think your shape script needs to check the diagram type and only set the colour if it isn't a transition diagram.

There is the following in the release notes for build 1305:
Redefine stereotypes from external profiles using a <<redefines>> stereotyped generalization
   . Add new tagged values to stereotype group for parent stereotype - Define distinct tags on the child stereotype
   . Replace the type of tagged values from parent stereotype - Define tagged values with the same name on the child stereotype
   . Remove tagged values from the parent sterotype - Define tagged values with the same name and the stereotype <<remove>> on the child stereotype
   . Automatically replace parent stereotype with child - Use same name for stereotype, and user selects technology containing child stereotype as active ( Configure | Technology | Manage | Set Active )

I think something in there will help you.

In EA's ArchiMate 3 profile, aggregation and composition both extend UML::Association.

To get Link as default do I need a feature request or a bug report? ;)

No, you Ctrl+Drag which brings up the dialog, choose "Drop as: Link" and tick the option "Save selection as default".

Bugs and Issues / Re: Quick Linker from a connector
« on: April 27, 2017, 02:31:09 pm »
You put "link:" in front of the connector type in column A. For example "link:Dependency".

As controlled by "Preferences > Objects > Show stereotype icon for requirements"? Sorry, no override.

Oh, the colours in the t_xref entry do not appear to be standard integer values from RGB!

They are decimal values of 6 character hexadecimals. Red is 255 (FF16), Green is 65280 (FF0016), Blue is 16711680 (FF000016) etc
