Bugs and Issues / Re: Default Toolbox depending by diagram-type (RedefinedToolbox)
« Last post by MRrobot on August 21, 2018, 01:25:55 am »
Hi,
I did never try this, so I can not give you hints about that.
However what works, is creating you own diagram profile as shown here:
http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/13.5/modeling_tools/custom_diagram_types.html
Mayby this is an option for you.

Thank you Peter, I got another question about custom diagrams:
How can you determine the parent-diagram-type of an built-in diagram?

The parent diagramm for UML Class diagrams is Logical (source:  http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/13.5/modeling_tools/defining_child_diagram_types.html)
I need all parent-diagrams for following diagrams:
  • ArchiMate 3 - Motivation
  • ArchiMate - ApplicationLayer
  • ArchiMate - BusinessLayer
  • BPMN2.0 - BusinessProcess
  • Common - Requirements
  • Win 32 User Interface - Diagram

Do their parent diagrams belong to those in my source?
How can I extract this information about partens from Sparx EA?

Regards,
MRrobot

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

Related to this topic,  I seem to have lost the Relationships Window off-screen.  How can I get just this window back onto a visible screen without affecting the others?

I tried "futzing" with the workspace setting file from a Workspace where the Relationship window was visible and on-screen but to no avail...

Oh boy I feel your pain. Had similar issues with resolution with my Lenovo Yoga and Sparx EA Resorted to setting the laptop screen to the same resolution as the desktop screens. I think with the new QHD resolutions Sparx EA has some scaling issues. I reported this earlier this year and thought they had fix it.

With regard to the relationship window you might be able to use the windows keys to move the window. Sorry working on my Mac at present so can't try any of these to double check.

option 1.
Hold down the ALT key.
Press SPACEBAR.
Press M (Move).
A 4-headed arrow will appear. When it does, use your arrow keys to move the outline of the window.
When you are happy with its position, press ENTER.

Option 2
Press and hold the Shift key and right-click the app's taskbar icon.
Select Move in the context menu.
Use the left, right, up and down arrow keys on the keyboard to move your window. When you have moved the window to the desired position, press Enter.

Option 3
Press Alt + Tab and select the app's window thumbnail. The app window will become active, but still not visible.
Press Alt +   Space  , then press M. This will activate the Move option of the window.
Use the left, right, up and down arrow keys to move your window. When you have moved the window to the desired position, press Enter

Option 4
Alternatively try disconnecting the monitors and the windows might align into visible view on the laptop screen.
Pin the window within the main window of sparx EA then connect the monitors again.

Connect a second monitor.

q.
I already have 3!  The window is NOT on any of them!

I don't think EA does something like that automagically.

Whenever i need them I use Alt+174 for and Alt+175 for

Geert

Oh, thanks! ;D But I think it will be difficult for people to type this combination instead of a pair of keys.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: A lot of text in doc convert in requirements
« Last post by NickBs on August 20, 2018, 06:24:30 pm »
I would probably write a bit of code (either C#, VBA or VBscript) to get the data out of the Word document.

I've done something similar in the past to get descriptions from a word document into EA (to be able to generate the whole document from EA)

Geert

I also thought so at first, but after examine the structure of word, I realized that it is quite difficult.

We cannot use headings to indicate our requirements. And so they were reserved for the Chapter. Although, there are some ideas, but it adds to the work. But well, i think it's good idea to test MDG. Maybe maybe. ???

No, we can't import tables because of different languages, EA just throws garbage, and you can't change UTF when importing CSV. But if someone knows how it can be organized, I will be glad.
Okay so it sounds like you haven't given us enough info to help you.  The example you provided looks like headers were being used for requirements. Don't you what your reference to chapters are. I'm total confused and have no idea what your MS word doc looks like now so your going to have to explain further.
Sounds like your requirements maybe written in a language other than english is that correct?
Do you have any programming/scripting skills ?

Yes, right now i'm writing a bunch of scripts for EA. I looked into the script to import CSV files, but it looks like it is only for the rules of building tables.

There how look architecture. I had to cover the data. If that's not enough, I'll think of something else.

Uml Process / Re: Reverse Engineer DB to ER Diagram
« Last post by PeterS on August 20, 2018, 05:37:24 pm »
I had the same issue. I created the foreign keys relations in EA. Exported it to the DB. It was shown in SqlServer 2012 in the "database diagrams" correctly. After importing it back (for testing purpose) via SQL native client to Enterprise Architect the foreign key constraint still existed but the link in the diagram was not shown.
What I just found out: I created the parent table with an idendity and autonumbering. After removing the autonumbering and recreation of the table, I imported the tables again and voila.. the link now exists.
Seems that EA has a bug, when the key column has autonumbering on.
I don't know if you have had the same setup, but maybe that helps.

Enterprise Architect v12 and v13
Database: Sql Server 2012

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!

Sheesh!
