General Board / Generate documents based on element tag
« on: August 03, 2018, 11:29:27 am »
Has any generated document by using tags?

I've got the idea of retricting the elements in a document by generating a document using tagged values.

For example the model document only generated from elements where to tags are specified, or one of a specific set of tags is applied to the element?



Wow, this is timely, I've just encountered this issue, so will attempt the fix

Hmmm, I've just tripped over this (again?) having been upgraded to W10.
Diagram zoom to best scale makes no difference whether set or reset.
Chaning from Metafile to bitmaps made the difference.
Anyone else had this experience since the original poster.
This affected both impages in generated documentation AND Published Images saved to file and clipboard.

Bugs and Issues / Searching using a famous search engine
« on: June 21, 2017, 07:17:54 am »
I was using a famous search engine to search for the phrase "sparx database engineering".
The first result returned was

Now here's the thing.
It would be preferable if the documentation for the latest version was returned, viz

My recommendation
  • search engines should be restricted from seeing anything other than the latest version of a page
  • on the page itself links to previous versions of pages should be provided, perhaps in a  margin
On a related note, I often link from our documentation to Sparx documentation,
to reduce ongoing maintenance it would be useful have an option such as

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Word Wrap on non spaced names
« on: May 31, 2017, 02:56:04 pm »
Anyway, there should be the ability to word wrap names that don;t have spaces, but do have mixed case naming.  We commonly use a naming scheme we've called Complex Pascal Naming where capital letters separate words, but Acronyms and Initialisms are allowed to retain their Uppercase.  It's not that hard to write an algorithm to split the words up and determine where the word wrap should be.

Please consider.


Algorithm: e.g. Split if needed after lowercase letter whenever lower case precedes uppercase; split if needed prior to any instance of Uppercase letter followed by lower case; split (say) if needed at any non alphanumeric character

Again there's no post in the "latest news" forum.
Can you please make sure whoever is responsible for that makes sure to always post a topic there first.
That is where we, the "specialists" keep an eye on, and it's a bit embarrassing if a customer comes with the news that a new version has been released without us knowing it already.

Since years this was always the first place where a new release was announced, and now suddenly since the last two releases it gets forgotten. What is happening down there?
I'm really not happy with this  :(

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Link to Connector Feature
« on: May 29, 2017, 08:12:25 am »
I can use the quick linker to connect a note to a connector (association) as well as to an element (class) (in 12.1).

Also by selecting a connector (where ate least one end is attached to an entity (not a note)) the context menu allows me to 'attach note or constraint'

What I can't do (and probably should be able to):
  • Link the note to a connector connector note
    In the previous post using the note context advanced menu you can link only to connector tagged values and constrains
  • Select the notelink when it is connected to a connector (but I can select a notelink when it is connected to an entity)
  • In fact the notelink connected to a connector appears to have no context menu at all.

I hope that as Paulo has 'reported' this these inconsistencies might be rectified as part of any changes made.
