Bugs and Issues / Re: Tag values mixing groups (ver 13.0)
« Last post by Arquesoft on June 21, 2018, 08:28:58 am »

I thought yu had already done that procedure...  What you have defined is the standard process for manually redefining a metatype.  If you don't do the steps of making sure you have cleared the StereotypeEx properties (where you unmark the checkbox of the non-current stereotype) then EA doesn't recognise the metatype correctly (Ask me how I know?  ;))

The reason I hadn't do that was there were hundreds of elements with that issue. I really was looking for a script (jscript or SQL) solution, but I really had to fix it by hand, one by one. They are now all fixed. But I still look for a script that has the same effect.

I guess this still has not changed, though I'm off the race since after 12.1.

General Board / Hide class generic info on diagram
« Last post by OldProgrammer on June 21, 2018, 08:12:31 am »
When modelling complex relationships I mostly use classes with minimal information only displaying features that are needed. Since some classes have generics associated the generic info box attached to the class shape adds unnecessary noise and can end up bigger than the class shape itself. Is there a way to switch off the generic info display of a class shape?

Sequences are not supported in SQL Server 2008.  Set Sequences to False in the Object Filters section of the "Import DB schema from ODBC source" dialog.
General Board / Mind map connectors
« Last post by costa2 on June 21, 2018, 07:52:12 am »

I created a mind map and I noticed that when I move the topics I created, the connectors are not re-arranged optimally. It is a bit hard to explain in words. Let's say I have Topic 1 above Topic 2 and I connect them with a connector. Everything looks fine. But as soon as I move Topic 2 above Topic 1 the connector moves the connection point with Topic2 properly  (i.e. it is on the bottom edge of Topic 2 rectangle), but the connection with Topic 1 also remains on the bottom edge of Topic 1, so the connector crosses the Topic 1 rectangle. In my minde the connector's connection point with Topic 1 should have been moved to the top edge of Topic 1.

As such, I find myself spending too much time (imo) re-arranging connectors to look pretty. Also the bezier connectors start having these weird shapes instead of becoming shorter.

Is there a way to tell EA to optimize this connectors positioning (i.e. use the shortest path between two topics)?

I ran a trace and the last query that is executed and which fails in SQL Server 2008 R2 is:

Code: [Select]
Select seq.SEQUENCE_SCHEMA, seq.SEQUENCE_NAME, ISNULL(com.value,'') As remarks,
   ('CREATE SEQUENCE ' + seq.SEQUENCE_SCHEMA  + '.' + seq.SEQUENCE_NAME + CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) +     ' AS ' + seq.DATA_TYPE + CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) +     ' START WITH ' + CONVERT("nvarchar", seq.START_VALUE) + CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) +     ' INCREMENT BY ' + CONVERT("nvarchar", seq.INCREMENT) + CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) +     ' MINVALUE ' + CONVERT("nvarchar", seq.MINIMUM_VALUE) + CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) +     ' MAXVALUE ' + CONVERT("nvarchar", seq.MAXIMUM_VALUE) + CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) + CASE WHEN seq.CYCLE_OPTION = 1 THEN ' CYCLE ' ELSE ' NO CYCLE ' END ) As seq_definition
From INFORMATION_SCHEMA.SEQUENCES seq, (select id, [name] from sys.sysobjects where name like 'seq%') sysseq
Left JOIN ( SELECT major_id, [value] From sys.extended_properties Where name = 'MS_Description' and minor_id = 0 ) com
    ON  ( = com.major_id )
Where seq.SEQUENCE_NAME = sysseq.[name]
And sequence_schema IN ('dbo')
and sequence_schema not in ('','INFORMATION_SCHEMA','sys')

There is no INFORMATION_SCHEMA.SEQUENCES view. I don't have SQL server 2014 or 2016 server to see if the view works but if you go to there is no SEQUENCES view.

So, this looks to me clearly that it's a bug. Please fix it.

Just to make sure there is no confusion, the model I want to import into is a Basic SQL Server 2008 Model.

I created a mind map and I wanted to associate some http urls pointing to OneNote files stored in SharePoint. I selected Type = Web Address but when I try to save I get the message below. The url has 318 characters. You should allow for up to 512 or 1024 chars .

DAO.Field [3163]
The field is too small to accept the amount of data you attempted to add. Try inserting or pasting less data.

If I try to paste less data the url won't work. The suggestion is dumb.

The user account I am using to reverse engineer the data is dbo in the database.

 Any other tool I have (Toad Data Modeler, Power Designer Data Architect) works fine when it comes to reverse engineering tables.

Looks like that only works on typedef cases and then it adds the bracketed size into the multiplicity.  So I still haven't identified a working solution yet...
