Bugs and Issues / FlushRTFLine(B) - Ran out of Memory
« on: May 27, 2010, 11:17:25 am »
EA Version 8.0 Build 856

From previous similar incidents, I have long since given up on actually fixing this intermittent and untraceable error but I now have a new symptom that I can't explain and I was hoping someone out there could give me any hints that they have developed over time.

We have a complex enterprise model that covers a number of applications and solutions in the one model.  We recently restructured the model to more accurately reflect some changes that we had made to our business processes.  We have not added new items or packages, just moved them about.

We have an automated process that produces RTF documents for each Client, Vendor, Project and Solution every night.

Prior to the restructure, rtf document production errors were very rare but since the change approximately every second documentation run hits the FlushRTFLine(B) error.  It almost always occurs at the earliest levels of the package tree.  

Is there anything that we can do (short of going back to the old structure) that will reduce the chance of this error happening?

For any reading this post, a bug has been lodged with Sparx about this matter.   The bug was titled "Lost Ability to Change dictionary Settings"


As I mentioned in the Bug Report, I cannot easily rollback to 7.5 to see the options but I later realised, I can check the options in the registry so the options that matter most to my organisation are:-
I hope this helps

Thanks for the reply.

The specific options which we used regularly were accessed from the option button on the "Not in Dictionary" dialog that comes up when a mis-spelled word is encountered.

On the options screen, I could choose to ignore mixed alphanumeric words, all capitals, domain names among other things.

as the Options button is no longer on this screen, I have not been able to find where I should change these values within EA.

I have managed to set the options by accessing them through the registry but I would like to set them within EA  (and ideally from the scripting engine)

I can confirm this as well.  We do a monthly full project spell check before publishing a version of our model and we have just found out that we can't access the options the way we previously did.

The previous was badly structured but in V8.0 we cant find how to change the options at all.

I have downloaded and installed build 848.

I generated the primary set of documents and it appears that the new build has resolved the Right-To-Left problem that we were experiencing.

I will be testing more fully over the next few work days but initial indications are good  (for me at least) ;)

Here is a Fix that is working for our organisation.


This has been tested on the full set of documentation we create and has not failed yet!!!.  We do not use any Right-to-Left languages so if you do use them this may work for you.

The steps are very simple...

Open RTF file in a text editor.
Replace all instances of "\rtlch" with "\ltrch"
Save file.
Then open the RTF in Word or OpenOffice and the problem is resolved.

I can add that for us the problem occurs in MS Office 2007 Enterprise addition in the office and the files also play up at home where I am running Office XP.

The only work-around that we have acheived is to revert back to an earlier build of EA on one machine and we generate our documentation on that machine alone.

6 Months later and I would still like to be able to select the same options in script as I can in the dialog box.

The way we have structured it, we would like to publish the issues, tasks and glossary at the same time as we produce our "work in progress" version of the html report.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how we might achieve this goal?

Hi All,

We are currently looking at automating our publication of the standard HTML report to our internal portal for review by a wider audience.  we have been using the issues, tasks and glossary to list items we are aware of and are working on.

I have not been able to work out if it is possible to include these items as you can with the "Generate Html report" dialog.  Has anybody found a way to do this?
