Notes

  • In the Corporate, Unified and Ultimate editions of Enterprise Architect, if security is enabled you must have 'Spell Check' permission to perform any spell check or change any spell check options
  • Enterprise Architect .EAP files default to use Jet 3.5 as the database engine; this does not support unicode character sets, which makes the use of certain languages - such as Portuguese - difficult, including spell checking words in those languages

    If you use such languages, it is recommended that you either upsize to a DBMS repository or set JET 4.0 as the database engine

    If your .EAP project is not in a Jet 4.0 database, you should also download a copy of the Jet 4.0 EABase model from the Sparx Systems website, and do an EAP to EAP transfer of your model into the Jet 4.0 file
