Really strange workaround but it helped me as well!
Thank you Uffe!

Bugs and Issues / Re: 1301: How to minimize ribbon
« on: June 28, 2016, 10:57:34 pm »
Qwerty! Your fall back to V12 is not a sustainable solution (I belief)! I assume you have to life with ribbon sooner or later, or you have to vote yourself for a qwexit. ;)

After starting working with V13 I am pretty sure that the day will come when I am as productive as with V12, but I do not belief to get even more productiveness by ribbon anyway.

So for me it is just having the same thing just at other places with neither significant benefits nor disadvantages (except transition). For Sparx it is may be a marketing issue.
Instead of doing the same thing over and over again, from my point of view having in each EA release a bit more consistency and quality would give me real benefit.

General Board / Re: Display elements automaticaly in a grouping box
« on: June 28, 2016, 10:25:57 pm »
I am not sure, but maybe I am trying to do a similar thing.
I do not know what group boxes are, but I assume that those are some kind of grouping elements of Archimate, right?

In my scenario I have different subsystems in a model all having e.g. a package containing requirements, architecture, …
I want to visualize what of those “major” packages belong to which subsystem and in what states they are.
To do that I use a Kanban diagram (I know that Kanban is intended for something else).
With the Kanban diagram you can (as far as I understand) define a SQL-query to define what goes in that Kanban diagram. The problem is just that defining a SQL query of style “give me all children at any package under package X is hard.
(One reason why I created this:,31067.0.html)
Maybe what you try with “Group Box” what I try with Kanban.

Yes, it is tool tip what I was taking about. I disabled “Show Tips in Status Bar” just because I am not very good in squinting.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: SQL Search macro #BranchGUIDorID= xyz#

Yes, I confirm I want an explicit parameter rather than selection something in the browser.
This would allow filtering things under a package without selection it.

But it is a V13 issue, right?

MDG (not MDB what is my master data base) ;)

General Board / V13: Is context help box gone?
« on: June 28, 2016, 12:20:21 am »
In pre V13 versions when you moved the mouse to some kind of commands often a little box appeared (can’t remember the technical term) with some information about what this icon, menu item on screen is good for (e.g. you if you moved the mouse to something in the toolbox some informative text appeared).

In V13 Buid 1301 this is gone. Does it come back? ???

Suggestions and Requests / SQL Search macro #BranchGUIDorID= xyz#

Searching recursively children of a parent is not really simple in SQL. EA already provides the #Branch# macro which simplifies to find all children of a selected package.

However I have several use cases where this feature would be very useful if I could define the package without selecting it.

Example: a Kanban related to a higher level package could be updated by sql selecting elements under the higher level package.
Due to the fact that the feature is in principle already there, the implementation seems to me to be easy.

I have a stereotype with a tagged value of type date defined in my MDB.

When using that stereotype and trying to set the date in the Tagged Values view/window, it is not made persistent.
When doing the same in the properties dialog of my element all works fine.

I was able to analyze the root cause of that problem.
The root cause was a ModelView element what I created and stored with senseless content:
SQL: select t_object
However the baseline message provided is misleading or at least not really helpful.

General Board / Re: Options to read an eap file on a mobile device

I think the two available options are html or documents based on templates in PDF/Work.

Hello Geert,
I posted a similar or maybe the same thing a while ago.

This issue was said to be fixed in V13 (did not verify that up to now).

What mobile device are you talking about IPhone/Pad, Android, a Windows Notebook?
