Is the global re-usable process (activity/child diagram) being called, stored outside of the project browser package/folder structure  that you are exporting?   If so that could be the reason it gets dropped.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Spurious duplicates while cloning
« on: February 22, 2017, 04:51:05 am »

While I haven't explicitly reproduced the problem, I would say that the symptoms described are a bug and should be reported.


I too see value in the "Clone Aware Modelling"  capability, but my view is that this is a fairly major piece of functionalityh that was introduced for the first time in version 13 and is suffering from being immature and possibly poorly tested.

Bugs and Issues / Re: EA crashes on cloning of composite element

Thanks Paolo,  I have asked them to re-open that item.

I think qwerty is right.

I'm using 13 build 1308.  If I drag the activity onto another diagram the "paste as link/invocation" panel gives me the option to include or exclude the structural elements.  If I choose to include them the edge-mounted event appears, if I don't it doesn't.   Even if I don't select the option there  I get another chance because the "structural elements" panel appears next where I can tick the checkbox for the ones I want included.  Again if I tick the intermediate event it appears on the diagram.

Could you have turned off these panels and therefore the default is not to include the intermediate event?

PS It's interesting though that when including the intermediate event it appears on a different side of the activity element to where it was put when originally created.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Default Colour of an Element resp. Shape

I think this can also be overridden by putting the element on a diagram in a template package and changing its fill colour.   All new elements of that type that are created should get the template colour specified.

I've had the following update from Sparx

"- when cloning a package structure, diagrams embedded in collaboration or business process elements are not copied (this might be by design, but it seems to compromise the whole idea of the time aware model - all I got after cloning was an empty package with a new version number)."

This will be considered for a future build of EA.


- elements on diagrams, encapsulated in a business process, e.g. BPMN activities will not clone. In some cases you are prompted for the version number in other cases nothing happens at all after choosing the option from the menu

Confirmed this will be fixed in a future build of EA.


- attempting to clone a business process element that is composite (has an embedded diagram) and encapsulates the elements defined within the process causes EA to crash to desktop "UML Development Tool has stopped working".

This crash was resolved in build 1309.

In terms of the last one.  We're using 1308 at the moment, so I can't confirm that the issue is fixed, however  such a fix isn't listed in the changes and fixes list for 1309.

I can confirm this issue and in fact I reported it about a week ago and have been given the reference 17015439.   I've chased for an update but only been told Sparx is still investigating.

The main content of the report which related to the use of BPMN was as follows:

- when cloning a package structure, diagrams embedded in collaboration or business process elements are not copied (this might be by design, but it seems to compromise the whole idea of the time aware model - all I got after cloning was an empty package with a new version number).
- elements on diagrams, encapsulated in a business process, e.g. BPMN activities will not clone. In some cases you are prompted for the version number in other cases nothing happens at all after choosing the option from the menu
- attempting to clone a business process element that is composite (has an embedded diagram) and encapsulates the elements defined within the process causes EA to crash to desktop "UML Development Tool has stopped working".

OK, thanks.  Somehow I've dropped off the notification list.  Will subscribe again.

General Board / Webinars
« on: February 01, 2017, 04:57:31 am »

I find these very useful, but what's happened?   They are supposed to be "monthly product interactive webinars",  however the last one was in November 2016 and it's now Feb 2017.

Will there be any more?

General Board / Re: Unable to set BPMN Gateway Parameters
« on: January 13, 2017, 04:31:00 am »
I just replicated the symptoms you've described by locking the element.  (Select the gateway, right-click, lock element).  Having done that I can still change the properties on the "Main" tab, but they are greyed out on the BPMN tab.  If I unlock the element, I can once again set the gateway direction.

You can tell if an element is locked in the project browser because it will have a red exclamation mark next to it.

I wrote a parser for the logfiles of the keystore service myself.
It uses the Qt library.
The output is a *.csv file that can then be used in Excel for any imaginable evaluation.

Unfortunately we cannot attach files to forum posts.
It is just one *.cpp file. I would have shared with you :(.

Could you put this on the community site?    http://community.sparxsystems.com/

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Diagram in Linked document
« on: January 05, 2017, 08:44:00 pm »

I think from a readability/usability perspective, being able to display the latest version of the diagram in the linked document makes a lot of sense.

Difficult if the the source is a closed system by design. 

Perhaps Simon M can give an update on the feasibility study to process RSA's proprietary format that he mentioned back in July?

You might be the only guys trying this in this configuration...

Bugs and Issues / Re: 1309: User Defined Boundary - how?

Ctrl+Click (same as connectors)

Not sure why the help doesn't have that yet.

I have always used Shift+Click to add/clear points to a connector.  Does that do exactly the same thing as Ctrl+Click/Crtl+Q?  If so it may help avoid the irritating side effect of Ctrl-Click.
