Are you saying that all displays are running at 200% DPI scaling, or are you running mixed scaling?

Don't under estimate yourself. You are travelling forward into the future one second at a time.

In a block universe that is reference frame dependent.

It seems like you are operating across a WAN, you really need to use the WAN accelerator.  As well as decreasing the chatter across the wire it's going to simplify the authentication across domains.

New features could drive sales.  A bug that gets very few reports - beyond the mavens here - probably are not cost effective to fix outside of when the code that contains them is being refactored.
Good point.
Wonder how many reports they got on PNG transparency issue.

Not enough :-)  It's got better.  Now I can save the diagram to a file and use it fine.  I just can't use the clipboard.  It's not great on putting labels onto an alternative image but now I can create some very pretty pictures.

I guess sometimes its more interesting for developers to add new features than it is to fix bugs.

I'm really tired with situation of bugs remaining unresolved for long period of time.

Like not properly handling transparency of PNGs?

Thanks for the comments.

A in both projects is same application

A model is a view of a [mythical] now state.  Your project 1 is a past state and your project 2 is a future state.  If you want them to be different you need to model them differently.  A diagram is not a picture (although your project 1 issue could be consider akin to Dorian Grey).

However the official ArchiMate Standard does not have those risk taxonomy types defined. The easiest option would be to use the Risk Taxonomy MDG that comes with Sparx EA.

I extended ArchiMate according to one of the white papers.  I didn't really like it in practice tho'.

However that being said the Risk Taxonomy MDG looks like it might be better suited so I'd be tempted to use that rather than shoehorn it into ArchiMate notation.
The most important thing is to understand the metamodel for your security group and the viewpoints they need - find some examples and use them for guidance

I created a MDG for the ArchiMate notation and the original methodology it is based on.  I just have to find where I put them :-)

I have few objects like Archimate_ApplicationComponent. I want connect them by InformationFlow. In someones I can do it (I see QuickLinker box and this name of relations) but in someones I can't- when I move mouse between 2 object Ouicklinker menu are not visible.

ArchiMate application components can be connected via an ArchiMate "FLOW".  An Information Flow is a UML relationship and doesn't apply to modelling in ArchiMate.

11
Ha ha - I agree we don't want dumb scribble, and we want objects with meaning! I'm trying to get a balance between adopting an entire methodology to get some initially simple diagramming done.

You can do what you want using about 4 UML shapes\connectors.  What you really need to do tho' is have a look at the TOGAF content meta-model.  The methodology is less important than having a structure to your content.

@Glassboy: we have a fixed license in this test.

So, the fact is: EA opens slow when connected to the VPN, and the PC makes calls to the  LDAP server. The LDAP server delays the answer, and when it answers, EA opens. But why?

Use Microsoft Process Monitor and capture a trace on VPN.  Then filter on the EA executable and associated tree.  You'll see what EA is trying to do at the network level.

I would keep your Sparx EA template as simple as possible with standard headers and then link it to a proper template from your word document.

In the network trace for the VPN are you seeing the Sparx EA client access the licence server?

With license sever do you mean the LDAP server? if so, no. We just can see the attemps of the PC over the net (not the individual apps).
If you mean the EA server license, no, we are using site license for the test.

I'm really unsure what you mean.  EA has either fixed or floating licences.  Generally VPN problems are the client not being able to see the licence server because the appropriate ports or IP address are not open through the VPN server.  PCs talk to domain controllers all the time, and unless you've used something like Microsoft Process Monitor to verify that EA is making a call to the DC it's probably a red herring.
