General Board / Re: Defined variables / string interpolation

I'm pretty sure there are lots of videos that tell "all guys from New Zealand are cannibals".

Longpork?  Only on special occasions.

it's Wittgenstein who brought this up in his "Tractatus": Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.

Ahh the boozy swine.

Bugs and Issues / Re: ArchiMate 3 and Aggregation/Composition nesting
« on: November 15, 2017, 08:03:40 am »
I have noticed an issue With some elements in the ArchiMate 3 MDG when using Aggregation\Composition and Nesting. In some elements (Application Component) when putting one element inside the other the relationship should hide but it doesn't. Trying the same With elements in Stretagy or Motivation seems to work. The relationship hides when the elements are nested.

I'm pretty sure I've noticed the same bug myself with the business layer, and had a recollection it all works fine in Archimate 2.  I haven't had a chance to do some testing and log a bug report though.

General Board / Re: Paste package from Clipboard very slow

No, it has nothing to do with profile creation.

Well if you don't want to use profiles you could create you own MDG with just design patterns in it.

But you don't! You mean the assemblage of shapes to the right of the recent files list.

If only those shapes came with tool tips :-)

Bugs and Issues / Whiteboard mode - white text
« on: November 03, 2017, 08:19:14 am »
Whiteboard mode.  Wouldn't you think turning a diagram to black and white should ignore the "default appearance" font colour setting for an element and not render colour behind the text labels of relationships?

I don't remember version 12 being as bad as v13 is.

Uml Process / Re: Class Attributes: How can I delete the {...} field?
« on: November 03, 2017, 07:46:06 am »
{bag} was replaced by {nonunique} for UML 2.2. EA hasn't caught up yet.

(I prefer bag. Why use a big word when a diminutive one would suffice?)

I don't like bag.  It's not descriptive and it has negative connotations.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Technopedia and EA
« on: October 31, 2017, 08:48:35 am »
Hi There,  Has anyone on this forum ever used Technopedia  https://www.bdna.com/products/technopedia/ with EA?   I'm particularly interested if anyone has built an API to Technopedia so that EA can be updated with its metadata on various software and hardware components.  I'm thinking this might be pretty useful for doing IT baseline architectures in complex organisations.

Just having a quick look, even if there was an API I think you'd struggle without access to the "Rosetta Stone" (hopefully ontological) that they've used to create the "common language".  I suspect the relationship of Technopedia to architecture is like the relationship of Remedy to ITIL.  Once you have the platform in place you're no longer following a framework other than the software vendors.

When you Drag & Drop a Diagram from the browser onto another diagram (as a Hyperlink), the "[ ] Run auto layout" is sticky and on my machine is set to true and disabled - so I can't change it!

I feel like this happens somewhere else too.  Can't quite remember where.

Must be cheap toys then  :P

Cheap individually, but it all depends on how big an army you want to build. :-)
