Maybe you should change your by-line to read:

Sorry Rupert,

I don't understand your question.

If you are trying to integrate a specific diagram into a document, so that you can get that document to "refresh" and pull in the latest version of the diagram from EA, then I'd recommend that you have a look at EADocX (an add-in which achieves that kind of document integration).

If not, can you explain what you're trying to achieve in a different way?

Andy

PS. Ian, I should get commission.  ;D

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Document glossary

eaDocX performs that function beautifully.

It scans your document for terms in the glossary, adds a glossary table, and underlines the items that have glossary definitions.

It's so useful, team members have linked documents, without any other EA content, purely for the glossary function.

 :D

Disclaimer, I'm not on their payroll, just a happy customer.

You may be looking at the "suppress line segment" functionality.

Make a connection between two objects.

Add a couple of new points on the line (bend line at cursor).

Right click on the segment and select "Suppress Line Segment"

The text that appears in the boxes is the name you have assigned to that association.

+1

Seriously, I would have added +1000 if I thought it would help.

This causes me so much nuisance, that I used the clumsy toolbox method rather than the keyboard shortcuts when working on larger diagrams.

I've had a look around here, and I can't find any evidence that the Feature Request was created...

It's quite likely that I was dragged off onto something else.

General Board / Re: Smart alignment?
« on: March 08, 2017, 04:18:05 pm »
OK.

I can see it now, but have to say it is very subtle.

 :)

It's something like, when you're within 10 pixels of the vertical or horizontal of the next nearest object, jump the last 10 pixels (to make the object line up vertically, or horizontally).

Now I've seen it, I'm going to try and use it regularly.

Thanks Simon.

... I know that Perl is write-only...

I prefer to say that PERL is well, WORN.

Simon, I regularly use the Align functions etc.

However, I've just spent half an hour trying to get "Smart Placement" to do something, with and without "Snap to Grid" enabled, and I haven't been able to catch it doing anything at all.

I think it may need a bit more support in the help text (if it is functioning).

General Board / Re: How do I specify a set of values for run states?

Set run state is a useful feature, so I'm disappointed that I wasn't able to achieve this with that feature.
