Perhaps KJI also believes that inconsistently correct systems don't exist....

General Board / Re: EA13 Sweeper and 'HV Lock'

Sorry, I think I got my EA and my Help mixed up.

What I meant was, within EA click on the Start Ribbon, Help panel, Help icon and select the Search Help option. Type in your search string. That search ought to find any occurrence of the text string in the entire Help system. I don't believe that is the same search mechanism as is behind the website search at the (very) top of the Sparx website page.

And if you try using the Help Search facility within the Help System, as I suggested earlier?

Bugs and Issues / Re: Diagram paste puts object at Z-order bottom

I tend to agree with your request, but as a back-stop you could display the Modify Z Order dialog to establish that new elements are on the diagram and to bring them forward so that you can see them and work on them. This would be a useful tool to have open even if the paste did put the new element front, top and centre.

In the Help look for Modeling Tools > Building Models > Diagrams > Diagram Context Menu, and read about the Modify Element Z Order option.

If you are still looking for the "Virtualized Connectors", they are documented here:

The object is actually a virtualized connector end, which is what they are documented as.

The SPAM has been deleted and, as per normal practice, the user ID and ISP address banned.

Yes, sorry, that is in the Help as well. I should have pointed that out too.

I think Peter IS referring to Tool Tips. These are now displayed at the left hand end of the Status Bar, at the bottom of the screen.

And EA_GetRibbonCategory is now in the Help, and will be visible when the Help is next recompiled and released.

I don't think that your post to the user forum is a waste of time. For one thing, it has identified what you have done to define the issue and your need for an upgrade of Integration for Visual Studio to support VS 2015. It also tells everyone what Sparx' official response was (so you did get an official response). And, it has shown that two other users agree with you - they have, as you wanted, spoken up.  You wouldn't have advised the user base or got support from other users without using the forum.

However, you then appear to want an official response from Sparx via the forum, and that won't happen.

It is up to you and/or the other two users to decide whether the declared support for this upgrade from the user population is enough to do as qwerty suggests and get your friends and associates to send feature requests to Sparx, and to send in another request to Sparx yourself, linked to this forum thread to show that other users have supported you.

And I know that property has been marked with 'This property is not used' in bold since at least September 4th 2015 (which is the 'Modified' stamp on the procedure) and very probably a long time prior to that as well.  'Deprecated' might not be the best term to use, since it implies that the property has been in use but has now been replaced by something else, whereas Simon pointed out that the property has never been used in EA.

From the introduction to the Suggestions and Requests category (click on the Sparx Systems Forum link in the path under the menu band):

'Suggest and discuss, with other users, features you would like to see added to Enterprise Architect. It would be helpful to discuss only one feature per thread. To submit a feature request directly to Sparx Systems, please use the Feature Request link provided.'

That means, you the users talk amongst yourselves and see whether any of you have any suggestions on the issue being raised, and/or agree that there is support for a feature to be requested. Then you use the proper channel for submitting the feature request to Sparx Systems. Some of the Sparx employees join in the chat on this users' forum, but that is no guarantee that they are the right people to respond on any point, or that their responses are commitments to forward or act on any points that you raise. We simply join in to be helpful (or not!) in the same way as any user does, and with the same caveat - "Don't quote me on this..."

To officially contact Sparx and expect a formal response, submit a bug report or feature request, or send an email to Sparx Support or Sparx Sales.

The option is currently described in the second paragraph of the 'Set Security Policy' topic, underneath the first two bullet points. My first search didn't locate it, but my second one did. The 'Search Help' option from the Start Ribbon does accept multiple words in a text string. Maybe you - like me - did not give it long enough to respond. The dialog sat there empty for 30 seconds before finding the menu option text.

I don't know why the option was not added to the 'Security SubMenu' topic, nor the Configure Ribbon 'Use Security Panel' topic, but it is now in both topics and will be visible when the Help is next published and released. Sorry about that.

Aw Maaaate.... nah, just had this really annoyin' neighbour, kept goin' on abaat spades 'n' shovels 'n' that ...
