« on: June 23, 2010, 12:29:43 pm »
I want to display the alias under the name on an artifact.
Any suggestions for how I could achieve this

We had a similar problem with RTF document generation.
Sent a test case as a repository and it was acknowledged as a bug.

For reference, from support, if this happens to you.

Can you please let us know the steps to reproduce the problem (optionally including a model sample to reproduce it)?

For additional information you could download/install process explorer. ( as follows...

1. Double click on the running EA process.
2. Open the 'Threads' tab.
3. Then click the 'Stack' button.
4. Select full contents (click first item, shift click last item)
5. Click Copy.
6. Paste results into your reply.

The request for "steps" reinforces my suggestion for a "black box".

I've go EA CPU bound after trying the Spring layout.
Has anyone seen something like this?

How can I capture some crash data for Sparx to diagnose, since it hasn't crash.

Where is that black box I've been wanting?

Here is the bug report I propose to make. Feedback welcome

When a Legend is shown in a diagram in a RTF generated document the line colour and widths are not rendered at all, all that shows is a narrow grey line.

The setting of  Tools | Options | general | Clipboard option
Generate RTF documentation dialogue box, Advanced TAB, Diagram format option

should be irrelevant to the image created in the document.

See forum for details.

Its clear that I don't understand what you are getting at.

Is there a means of setting at a global level the setting found in the Generate RTF documentation dialogue box, Advanced TAB, Diagram format option to bitmap?

How it this option set initially? Is it by default set to metafile?

What is the default for   Tools | Options | general | Clipboard option?

It seems to me that whether I copy an image to the clipboard, save the image to a folder, or generate an image as part of a diagram, the image should look the same, and the two options settings above should not impact on the visual appearance of the image.

The tecnhical format of the diagram (jpeg, enhanced metafile) should not have to matter to me for the simple usage I require.
I just want EA to work, rather than have to research and report bugs that impact the quality of work I produce to the business.
I should not have to alert EA developers to the way that tools put images on the clipboard, or copy them off. To me as a windows user I expect these things to "Just work"TM (in the way I am used to). I use many Windows applications, and most of them (eg MS Office, Open office), do just work.

Well that is interesting.
When I change the setting on the advanced TAB the image is correctly generated.

Its also interesting because the advanced document generation setting is independent from the Tools options etting.

I also notice that when I repeat the test the "Diagram Format" is not sticky, it reverts to Metafile.

I changed the clipboard option to "bitmap"
the document generated images are still incorrect.
Will report soon, see if there are any more comments from community first.

In fact if you use Diagram | Save Image which is how I generated the image from the model, it looks good.

If you use Diagram | Copy Image you get this - also wrong

I have the following legend in a diagram.

When I generate my document this is the legend that is displayed.

has anyone else observed this problem?

I believe this may also be an issue in recent earlier versions of EA?

It looks like you have done every thing right, and ticked (or unticked) all the boxes.

<gripe on>
There appears to be an aversion from Sparx to allowing registered user to upload pictures directly to the forum. The feature has been asked for before.
Despite a picture being worth a 1000 words, or that it would be a convenience for customers who are contributing the the Sparx community, it has not been enabled.
Instead you have to go to the trouble and inconvenience (and extra effort) or finding a free photo hoster, uploading your photo there,
and then placing a link to that image in your post.

I can confirm that changing EA to bitmap allows the clipboard image created to be able to be pasted into Picture Manager, AND that the image is now the correct one.
