Here is a dialogue box for which resize would be most useful.

Suggestions and Requests / EA 10 wishlist
« on: November 23, 2012, 08:45:02 am »
OK, I've started playing with EA 10, and, you know, there is a lot of small stuff that it would be real nice to have.
Please feel free to add to this wish list.

It is possible to make the sort order NOT case sensitive in the project window. This would be very useful for reverse engineering databases (se SQL Server)

Suggestions and Requests / Feature request: Add related elements
« on: November 17, 2011, 10:57:41 am »
I'd like the add related elements context menu item for classes on a diagram to apply when two or more elements are selected.

Very useful for data modelling (reverse engineering)

Suggestions and Requests / Connector formatting

Is it possible to format connectors as dotted, or dashed?

Suggestions and Requests / Hiding the stereotype on an artifact
« on: June 25, 2010, 12:33:05 pm »
I am trying to hide both the artifact icon and the «artifact» label in the element,
but having tried all four combinations on the diagram properties element tab under "Element Appearance" "Use Stereotype Icons" and "Show Element Stereotypes" they will not both disappear,

See this image for the result for each of these settings.

Any suggestions?

Suggestions and Requests / Section break odd or even page

I feature I would find useful is the ability to start a section on an odd or on an even page

Suggestions and Requests / 9.0 resizable dialogues: Customize

Continuing on from 8.0 resizable dialogues

Customization dialog


Suggestions and Requests / 9.0 Customise menus
« on: May 12, 2011, 06:23:39 am »
I asked support

I can't find "Get Style" or "Paste Appearance"
when scrolling thru "All Commands" on the customise toolbars menu

You might be interested in the answer

The Commands tab in the customize dialog only lists commands which are available in the Main Menu (under the File, Edit, View, etc).  The two options you mentioned are not available via the Main Menu, they can only be accessed via toolbars.  You can add these "toolbar only" icons to your custom toolbar by doing the following...
  • Open the "Tools | Customize" dialog.
  • Select the "Toolbars" tab, and ensure the "Diagram", "Format Tool", and your custom toolbar are enabled/visible.
  • While the Customize dialog is open you can copy Icons by holding CTRL and dragging the Icon from one toolbar to another.
I could not find this method of moving/copying toolbar icons mentioned in EA's help.  I will request that it be updated.

It seems to me that all commands should be shown in the customise dialogue, not just those in the main menu.

Suggestions and Requests / Desktop icon - not wanted
« on: July 29, 2010, 10:22:39 am »
I installed the latest build of EA.
It put a shortcut on my desktop.
I didn't ask it to do it,
I didn't want it to do it.

I value an uncluttered desktop.

I propose that this install behaviour should be selectable, but not the default, behaviour when EA is installed.

I don't believe that every app I install should, by right, expect to have its icon on my desktop.

Your thoughts welcome.

The project browser would be more functional (useful) if when multiple selections were made on it more context menu commands were available.
Two that are missing for me are
  • lock when multiple elements are selected
  • move element (down or up) when contiguous elements are selected
I'm sure that there are others you could suggest

Suggestions and Requests / 9.0 Tabs
« on: May 10, 2011, 01:33:36 pm »
OK, now we can change the order of the diagram views in the main window,
and hide (close) the Start Page.

But, <feature request on>
  • reopen last closed tab
  • allow the tab to be dragged away from the window into its own pane (aka the tool bars)
<feature request off>

Suggestions and Requests / 9.0 Icons
« on: May 06, 2011, 09:42:16 am »
Please add more icons, so that icons rather than the description are shown in customised tool bars


Suggestions and Requests / Rename resources
« on: April 12, 2011, 06:42:24 am »
We export and import resources to share them between separate models.

When we update the resources we would like them to replace (update) existing resources when we export and then import an updated resource.

I assume that resources, like much else, have a GUID.
What we want to do, and can't, is rename a resource,
yet if we create a new resource (to change the name) we loose the GUID and therefore the connection that means resources are updated.

Please can we have a rename for resources, esp document templates. (for version 9?)

Suggestions and Requests / Arrange Resources by package
« on: April 13, 2011, 09:24:26 am »
As the number of Resources (see Resources tab) grows it would be useful, and natural to arrange them by packages (folders).
How about this as a feature request?
