General Board / Re: HTML report for large diagrams

Setting aside that I too feel that large diagrams like that can only be used effectively as wallpaper; the html export generally creates pretty detailed diagram images that allow a lot of zooming.

There are a number of settings that you might want to experiment with.
See Preferences | Diagram | Image Memory Limit  for example.

If you search either the forum or StackOverflow I believe you should be able to find a few topics related to this as well.

I understand why you would like to do so, but it is the smaller splitted diagram that we would like to illustrate in one large integrating diagram.
We need to be able to show the business a complete picture over the product development and all elements that it includes (on a meta level) and how they relates to eachother. By only showing smaller pieces at the time it has become clear to us that they can't get the horizontal view that they need to be able to see. usually we need to print it on a very large paper, but it would be nice to be able to publish it.

But on the other hand, at the moment they cant see anything.... :o

First thought: why is the diagram that big? Can't you chop it off in several smaller diagrams?

Is there a way to generate a HTML report on a large diagram?
At the moment it is impossible to see anything in the generated report.
The diagram has roughtly 120 elements and relations between them and has a span of about 4*A0 in size


General Board / Element name on default iamge
« Last post by RWHurra on March 16, 2018, 07:09:04 pm »

I was requested to use an image as background image for a certain type of element. We have not made a custom MDG and can therefore (?) not add a background through shape script. I added the image by right clicking: Appearance: Set Default Image.

The problem is that I now only can place the name under the element, or hide it. Can I somehow still have the name in the same place in the element, just on top of the background image?

I tried to do some googling but didn't find anything.

I guess the problem also is that this has to be done to all element "instances" of this type. I guess I might be able to script it..

I know I have played around with editing shape scripts through: UML Types, but I cant find any elements from ArchiMate there? I do see two ArchiMate relations: ArchiMate3::ArchiMate_Association and ArchiMate3::ArchiMate_Composition, but no elements.

Thank you!
No, I think that is about it for version 12.
Even if you somehow managed to manipulate the scrolling through windows clickevents, I don't think there's any way of knowing which part of the diagram is being shown.

Our team are looking into the error. Thanks for pointing it out.
[Update: Should be fixed now.]

Also I would be able to search for latest entries of a certain person, without specifying a subject. Is that possible?

If you open the profile page for a user (click on their name), there should be a link that says "Show Posts".

Target role, could be one of the attributes defined in the Target or a free text.
if I get your expectation right, you may be after a 'Enum' tagged value to the connector

Are you referring to the search facility for our website? If so, the "User Guide" tab of the search results should point to pages in our online html user guide. The "Website" tab may link to anything on our website, which includes both html pages and PDFs.

What term are you searching for? Look carefully through the result list. Are they all PDFs or are you also getting links to html pages?
Hi Geert and Guillaume,

first of all I wanna thank you for your quick answers.
The new function FindElementInDiagram would be the perfect fit, so thanks for that Geert. Sadly I've to support EA12 (1215) where this is not available. Do you have any other ideas how to handle that? Probably any dirty Win32 API hacks would be possible, but I really would like avoid them.

Thanks, Sven

I've make far worse workarounds  ::)
I bet you have. :D  Seems to be pretty common regarding EA development... ;)
