Sparxians getting all the Karma points?? All you guys are up there in the double figures whilst KP has 2 and I have (lemme see, top divided by bottom, carry one, multiply by the principle...) yup, 1.

Sure and has anyone been brave enough to hit that unhelpful link yet?

I don't get arcto :-)  I even downloaded printable graph paper and drew out what I wanted, and then overlaid two axes to get what i though should be the right set of coordinates.  But nup!

General Board / Heatmaps and keywords
« on: January 26, 2016, 08:33:26 am »
In the context of Heatmaps are keywords actually words that can be separated by a particular character (I'd expect a comma), or is it just a string?

The heatmap appears to see the element as one string rather than separating it into words.

Any more thoughts?

Yes I have some thoughts.  Given that there are at least three forum members who want to "extend" the Sparx implementation of Archimate 2, why not replace it entirely?  Create a project on a web based source repository and have people work on particular parts of it.

Given the current trend with the negative karma, no one is going to have a positive karma apart from the Sparxians.

Bugs and Issues / Re: SQL Server connection from Home machine

You should be able to specify a different username in the ODBC connection.  You'll to preface the username with the Windows domain name.  The quickest way to work out what to use is to open a command prompt on your work machine and run "whoami".

Though another member here called that "making Archimate non-Archimante"  ;)

No, I said it's making "Sparx's UML rendered Archimate more UML".  I think it's generous to say EA does Archimate, it does UML that looks like Archimate.  Creating Archimate models in tools like Archi is a very different experience.

And if you want to get the shapescript you don't need to go through Geert's complicated process.  Create some shapescript on an element.  Cut and paste the shapescript from the MDG into resulting image attribute (completely replacing the contents).  Open the shapescript editor.

Hi there, what you describe sounds like you are seeing the User Principal Name (UPN) rather than the sAMAccountName.

You're also more likely to get an answer if you also explain what database technology you're using.

I'm pretty sure if a note is selectable it plays havoc with some of the layout options.

I like selectable.  If they are going to improve experience in that general area, I'd prefer that diagram filters and layout options we improved.  Generally, I have to add a whole lot of spacer shapes so I can "box" elements in the right places and then optimally layout relationships between them.  I'd also like to be able to "tree" a selected set of relationships (and elements) with one click.

You still have to reload diagrams to see changes to information flows, so i guess there is still work to go.

The see the other tread I pasted the link to, and try changing your Scale Saved Bitmaps to setting.

Thank you, but the topic does not help... I have no access to the printer, the images will be send to other place and I am not the responsible for the printing... Has someone any other tips about images quality for printing?

You seem to have created a red herring talking about printing.  How are you saving the images? (to be sent off to be printed by someone else)

Also, if you are using a "follow me" printing solution you will be printing to a generic set of printer drivers which may not render your diagrams that well.

There's two things you can do. 
  • If you have access to install a printer on your workstation find out the IP address of the printer and configure a local network printer queue with the model specific driver and optimal graphics rendering options.
  • Set up a PDF printer queue with optimal rendering.  Then print the PDF.
