Bugs and Issues / Re: Bug: File Path too short

Have I missed something?  Wouldn't the simplest answer be to use a service like  You get a short URL so you can add clickable links and it automatically redirects to the target you want.

Bugs and Issues / Re: EA10 doesn't lock a key for a system

Can you explain a little further - are you saying you have successfully connected to the keystore service on your internal network from a remote external location?

I believe authentication of the floating key happens every time you start up EA.  If you start it up at a client site without access to your keystore, or server with the key service, which are back at your office, it won't work.   I don't think this is a bug, it's by design.

Bugs and Issues / Adding Tagged Values to Multiple Elements
« on: May 17, 2013, 02:39:38 am »
The help says...

"You can add a Tagged Value to one or more elements with a special shortcut... one or more elements and press Ctrl+Shift+T.     The Tagged Values dialog displays, which enables you to enter a Name and Value for the tag."

I tried this with the Project Browser.  Unfortunately it doesn't work there.  The tagged value is only added to the last element selected.  It does work though if you select multiple elements on a diagram.

The last build, 864, of version 8 of EA was released on October 19th 2010, and version 10 has been out a while now too.  As a result it's very optimistic to expect support/help for version 8.

Having said that you seem to be on build 862, so perhaps your issue is fixed in the 864 update?   Otherwise I would strongly recommend upgrading to the latest version.

You should put in a formal feature request, although don't hold your breath in anticpation of it being delivered.  

Screen Architect seems to have been abandoned by Catch.  Perhaps Sparx could take it on and provide the functionality that way ?

Bugs and Issues / Re: Individual model document layouts
« on: May 22, 2012, 11:00:06 pm »
This should be possible, but you have to set the orientation in each of the RTF model document templates I believe.    

If I remember correctly you need to go to the Edit menu, then the Edit Section option, and then set portrait or landscape for that RTF template (assuming you only have one section in the document).    

Then when you generate the output from the master document, the orientation of each model document should be honoured.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Connectors in Use Case Diagram into the backgr
« on: March 07, 2012, 03:52:51 am »

how may I get Connectors into the background of UseCases.
I know howto hide Connectors, but I want to still be able to see them. But it is annoying that the Connector-lines cross my UseCases at the front. Is there any way to change that and if it is possible how do I change it?

ps: EA 7.5

I think the answer is to upgrade.  There are more options to control connectors both in their routing (have the connector line go anywhere you want) and shape (curved, straight etc.)  and you can now show a connector jumping over another one rather than just crossing it.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Wrong style used for notes comments

Then is it time to submit a bug report ?

Build 864 was the last build for 8.x   -  are you using that ?
if so the behaviour should be as mentioned in the release notes for build 864

Style for notes fields in generated documentation improved.
•Paragraph spacing, alignment and indents. Font face and size will always be copied from template.
•Font color and styles such as bold or italics can be copied from template if 'Use Style Defined in Templates for notes' is set.

Build 904 also has a fix
•Bulleted and Numbered lists from notes now be generated with the paragraph spacing specified by the template

I remember an issue like that, but was under the impression it had been fixed - which version of EA are you using ?

Also, there is the document (template) option "Use style defined in template for notes"  which should override any specific element formatting.

It might not solve any problems, but this thread has some useful information in it

Just so you don't feel alone I am having similar problems, though you have done better than me as I am not getting the font changes I make reflected back in Normal.rtf, the only way I can get the fonts consistent is to base every new template on one I created with the fonts I wonted and even then the list overrides do not persist.

Have you tried:
1) setting up your fonts, deleting all text from the document and then exporting the template to normal.rtf
2) making sure your exported normal.rtf is put in the right location, on Windows in the EA RTFTemplates folder under your profile?

Bugs and Issues / Re: Importing a whole model from an XMI
« on: February 29, 2012, 09:13:09 pm »
I've heard of connector styles being different in a baseline comparison, although it's disconcerting, it doesn't appear to be serious.

A missing package is very concerning, but we'd need some sort of sample to reproduce it. I hope you still have the original data somewhere...

The option for external references is not expected to make any difference when the entire model is being imported. It is for references outside of the package being imported, again I'm not aware of any issues resolving references between packages within an XMI file.

So if I've understood that,  for a complete model only ONE import is (or should be) required, rather than the mulitple imports Paolo suggests.   As Qwerty imported a complete model and had issues, this suggests there's a problem somewhere - time for a bug report ?

Bugs and Issues / Re: Automatic link colors appearing and disappeari
« on: February 15, 2012, 08:46:20 pm »
Cool, yet another hidden feature I didn't know about.
(who's bright idea was it to hide that feature behind the "L" key :-X)

The Alt-L thing is more of an L-Alt thing ;D
You have to first press L and then (while holding the L) press Alt.
Then you can release both keys and the colors stay visible.


Works for me - neat feature !  

However I don't see it mentioned on the Keyboard Shortcuts section of the help - Roy ?
