It was a good idea, quite a while ago!

I have just made a small amendment to the Work with MDG Technologies topic, but the Manage MDG Technologies topic already describes an Active technology as being the default technology for the model.

Your confusion arises purely from Paolo's response - as does mine, actually! Your words are perfectly correct.

No , I think Paolo meant that he stood. That is, was erect. To be standing = to be erect. That sort of play on words.

If you want to confuse anyone, speak or write English. Maybe we should all speak Nederlandse instead?

Are you sure Aaron's link isn't what you need?

Half way down the topic is the sentence:

"You can also use the _defaultDiagramType attribute for packages, extending the Package metaclass."

You would call in the diagram type you have created?

Some of us provide ad hoc comments on this user forum that (we hope) help people with difficulties they might have. But this isn't the channel for support requests. If you want a Sparx employee to look into a problem, please submit a bug report to Sparx Support, using the link in the Support column at the foot of the screen. Thanks!

Thank you. I'll pass your comment on to my Sparx colleagues, who all work hard to make the Help as accurate and useful as possible.


It is strongly suggested in the Help that User Security is a prerequisite for Workflow Scripting, but not categorically stated.

I have now updated the Help to include (amongst other things) the statement:

Workflow Scripting is an extension of User Security, and requires security to be enabled in order to function

I think the incantation is "upgrade to release 9.0, build 904", but you can add your favourite flourish of the wand if you like. That build is when that option was introduced. However, the option is not documented (yet) - next release, I hope.

It just copies the diagram as a single image into a PDF file in a location of your choosing. You might have to manipulate the image and/or print properties in the PDF file to get it to print out within the page margins.

In the EA Help, the documentation is under:

Modeling Basics > Elements > Element Tasks > Composite Elements

In the UML Superstructure Specification the icon is displayed in Figure 15.34. However, they are called 'Hidden decomposition indicator icons' in the figure title.

If you do not know that these elements are called Composite Elements, I'm not sure how you would chase them down on the EA Help. There are various icons representing spectacles for executing view or search functions; indexing the composite element icon under 'spectacle icon inside element' might not be specific enough, but I have just put it into the index anyway. Any other suggestions?

Do you mean these two topics?

And told to shut up.

But before you do shut up, you only have another 5300-odd postings to catch up with Midnight, who now appears to be back and upping the ante (welcome back David!). So come on lad, hop to it!

Kris (and anyone else interested)

Please submit this as a Feature Request (or, if you prefer, a bug report) directly to Sparx Support using the links in the Support column at the foot of this page.

Yes, weird. I have given the Element.Notes field a good workout, adding it, deleting it, shifting it around, saving the template and all that. Whenever I wanted to delete it, it went without a problem.

If you have this problem again, please send a bug report in to sparx support with a copy of the template.  Thanks.

Well, the sections are protected, so you can't delete them (or either of the start or end portions thereof). You just turn them off in the Sections panel (deselect the check box). I suspect that the start of your section is a long way in advance of the end, so it just looks as if the end is an orphan.

As for fields, I can delete text with no background, and I can delete text with a grey background as long as I delete the whole string between (and including) the brackets. I don't have 'bits' left floating around.

Perhaps you could tell us exactly which section and which field value you are having problems with.

Not sure what you mean by an orphaned tag. Is it a section tag, listed in the Sections panel on the left? Can you deselect the check box for that tag in the Sections panel? If it is a field tag, perhaps there is more to it than you have highlighted; you need to get the whole thing, including the brackets.

I seem to be able to clean up the experimental work in my sandbox template, but as I said, I'm not sure what actual item you are trying to remove.

In the Help, this is called the Legacy RTF Generator. The 'new' generator has been around for a long time, but we have found that there are still some people who are using the Legacy Generator. We don't maintain the Legacy Generator, but we have not excommunicated it either. Yet.
