In the immortal words of the advertisement...  "But wait, there's more!"

If you now try to move/resize the populated window it reverts to the unscaled version!


Are you saying that all displays are running at 200% DPI scaling, or are you running mixed scaling?
Mixed scaling - the Desktop screens are running at 100%

But in a case of PURE EAUI, while the windows are "empty", you see the effect I mentioned in the OP.  I had EA open but without a repository open.  BUT, if you then actually open and use the repository and populate the window with REAL data, it miraculously scales and populates correctly!  This is also true of the other windows I tested.

Without EAUI, life would be SO boring (and productive)!  ;)

Bugs and Issues / Re: Weird behaviour on Surface Book 2 - multi-screen resolution

Are you saying that all displays are running at 200% DPI scaling, or are you running mixed scaling?
I've just got a new Surface Book 2 (under Windows 10) and use Sparx with 3 screens, two Desktop screens @ 1680x1050 and the 13.5" Surface book 2 @ 3000x2000 (with scaling set at the recommended 200%).

Most apps handle this pretty OK.  Moving windows between screens adjusts the size of the window accordingly.

However, EA (as usual) does something unexpected.  If I move the Element Browser window (for example) from the Desktop screen to the Surface Book Screen, the physical size reduces dramatically (in order to maintain the pixel size) and a "ghost" window is also created - slightly lower and to the right at what looks like the correct size if the window was being adjusted for the scaling.  The ghost window stops me positioning the window in the correct place and the real window is too small to read without the magnifier!

Anyone else seeing this at high resolutions with multiple screens?

Bugs and Issues / EA14: Swimlanes line width not working ?
« Last post by matthew.james on August 20, 2018, 01:23:47 pm »
I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing problems with the line width setting for diagram swimlanes?
The default setting I get is 3 but I can't seem to change it.  If I change the control from 3 to 1 then save the property changes, there is no change to the diagram and if I move off the swimlanes sheet onto the normal properties sheet and back again it has reverted back to 3.

All the other settings (font, font colour, name display etc) including the line colour work fine.  It's just the line width that seems to be ignored

If you are after a pasted image in diagrams, change its size with pressing SHIFT key.
It is the same as autoshapes in Excel, Word, etc.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Notes for class attributes

Jules, my comment wasn't intended to be offensive in any way.

I acknowledge that the attribute list, attribute properties and attribute notes were previously all in the one dialog. EA 14 is a little different, you can edit the properties and notes for attributes in the same windows that you can edit the properties and notes for anything.  So, you can select an attribute in the project browser, diagram or the attribute list and edit it in the same place you would edit a class. You'll also get a number of extended dialogs depending on the type. That unification of where to look was the intended improvement.

Having said all of that, as discussed already in this thread, version 14.1 offers an option to access the old dialog. So there's your alternative.

Like or life?

It should have been, like, life. But maybe I was channelling a millennial  ;) (as here).

If everything is the same bar the AD then it kind of points to that. Maybe the AD is involved in authorising each request to the DB and one AD is slower at responding. Not sure how it all works under the hood but maybe AD is involved in validating security tokens on each request to the DB.  You might be able to find out some kind of message sequence diagram via google to help understand how DB requests and AD interact for authorisation.

Networks can also be set up to give different qualities of services and that might be dependent on which AD users are on.

If you want an approach to problem-solving look up Kepner Tregoe. It helps to work through the logic and isolate the root cause. I've used it a lot over the last 25 years and it was really useful.
