I admit that I don't really understand what this process is doing, but does the setting of the 'Ignore Element and Property Visibility' option make a difference?  Or the Scope of the Association Ends?

From the Help:
"Click on this option to include all Classes, Attributes and Association End roles in the GML Application Schema, irrespective of their visibility (or Scope). Otherwise, only those with Public visibility will be considered for generation."

Not exactly. On a specific diagram, try playing with the options in the Layout > Alignment > 'box' drop-down menu (the 'box' being the icon in the bottom right corner of the 'Alignment' panel).

This will be in the next release of the Help. The _HideUmlLinks attribute is already there, I believe, in the Special Attributes topic, but I have added a reference in the Hide Default Quick Linker Settings topic as well.

General Board / Re: Cannot move state machine diagram between packages
« on: November 23, 2018, 10:51:05 am »
See Takeshi's post.

I don't know if Takeshi has reported the bug, but you could still do it too. Select the 'Support > Report a bug' option at the bottom of the web page and simply say that a UML State Machine diagram created directly under an element OTHER THAN a State Machine element does not have a frame, but displays an error message saying it DOES have a frame if you try to move the diagram. Include a reference to this forum thread in the bug report.

The alternative method, if it fits in with your model structure, is to create your StateMachine diagram as a child of a StateMachine element, and then hide the frame.

Ahhh - now I see. I tested with SysML diagrams and a StateMachine diagram under a StateMachine node. Thanks for the clarification, Takeshi.

Not sure why daygp would have had a problem, though.

So have Sparx Support been notified, and have they commented?

Let's get this clear...

You have a StateMachine diagram that you are trying to move, and you get the error message:

'Diagram frame(s) are currently being displayed
Please disable them and save the diagram(s) before continuing'

If this message displays, you should have a border around your diagram (or a section of your diagram), with a small box in the top left corner identifying the parent element. If this is not the case something is wrong and you should report a bug.

If you have a frame around the diagram (or part of the diagram) you can right-click on the background of the diagram to display a context menu that provides the option 'Hide Diagram Frame'. If that option is not listed (and you do have a frame on the State Machine diagram) something is wrong and you should report a bug.

If you think that there might be a frame assigned to a StateMachine or SysML diagram, but you can't see it, right-click on the diagram background and see if the 'Show Diagram Frame' option is listed. If that option is not shown, there is no diagram frame on the diagram. If the option is shown, select it to display the diagram frame.

Let us know if your problem persists.

Quote from 'Forum Etiquette', a sticky post at the top of this category:

"Use of the user forum is entirely voluntary and imposes no obligation on anyone to contribute, whether that be the general user audience or Sparx employees. So, if you post a request, it is possible that you might not get a response."

There is, in Release 14.1, a UML::Package Toolbox, although the published Help does not yet reflect that.

Originally, Package diagrams were populated using the UML::Class Toolbox, which is why a UML::Package Toolbox was not in the list you have seen in the EA Release 10 Help. 

I think the Package Toolbox was released after EA 13.0, but the best thing to do is - as KP suggests - try referring to UML::Package and see if it is recognized. If not, and depending on what you are doing with the Package diagram, refer to the UML::Metamodel or UML::Profile Toolboxes as Geert suggests, or the UML::Class Toolbox.

And notify Sparx Support too.

I have edited these posts. The thread was not necessary and was not helping the original user in their request for support.

Please try to be helpful, kind and constructive in your postings on this forum.

General Board / Re: How to remove my Stereotypes from the list - EA 14
« on: October 23, 2018, 10:31:50 am »
Using the Ribbon option.

Firstly, check that you can accurately identify the stereotypes you want to get rid of. Duplicate stereotype names crop up quite regularly, and you don't want to remove the wrong ones.

Select the Configure ribbon, then Reference Data > UML Types. On the Stereotypes page, locate and select the stereotype to delete, then click on the Delete button.

Bugs and Issues / Re: How to "Publish Diagram as Pattern"?
« on: October 16, 2018, 11:30:12 am »
I can't find anywhere in the Help files that refers to the ribbon path that you quote, Paolo. All references are to the correct path that Geert quotes, and the 'Modified Date' field on the text element is at least 6 months ago.  Where did you see the incorrect ribbon path?

Bugs and Issues / Re: Ribbon Sets - NO Help
« on: October 09, 2018, 12:15:36 pm »
You could have searched the Help for the exact option text you saw - 'My Ribbon Sets'. There are three references to customizing the ribbons in the output.

Anyway, to your questions:

Can I create a new ribbon?  Doesn't look like it.  I would also like to be able to select menu portions from various other menus in the new Ribbon.

No, you can't create a different ribbon. You can select to show or hide existing ribbons or portions of ribbons as a set. Effectively you ARE creating your own 'super-ribbon', with the existing ribbon, section and option names.

I can select which ribbon portion to show, but that seems to be defective.  The whole Ribbon is displayed. Have I misunderstood this functionality?

Possibly. When I apply a ribbon set and select a ribbon within it, I see the ribbon and the panels within it that I have selected to show. The panels (or complete ribbons) that I have de-selected to hide are not visible.

There is no mechanism to manipulate the Start Menu. I'm too scared to make another menu the default menu in case I lose the Start menu and can't change the Menu Sets any more!

Don't be scared, Paolo!  From the Help topic : "You cannot hide the 'Start' ribbon, 'Specification - Specify' ribbon or 'Document - Edit' ribbon, or any panels that they contain"

You don't hide or render unselectable a ribbon when you set a different one as the default. The default ribbon is the one that is expanded in the ribbon bar when you first open Enterprise Architect. All the other ribbons (within your ribbon set, which always - as the note from the Help states - includes the Start ribbon) are still there to select as and when you wish.

General Board / Re: EA13 beta: missing basic copy,paste
« on: September 26, 2018, 11:58:21 am »
I can see the options, in the Layout ribbon. The diagram has to be open to enable them, but they are still visible regardless.

In the ribbon, click on 'Diagram > Edit > Copy selected element(s)' and 'Paste as New' (or 'Paste as Reference').

On a diagram, right-click on the element and select 'Copy', then right-click on the diagram and select 'Paste', then the appropriate Paste option.

There are also Copy, Cut and Paste options in the Project Browser element context menu.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Change appearance of elements
« on: September 26, 2018, 11:31:08 am »
1)  The element (and in this case only that element, not other elements of that type/stereotype) has an image assigned to it via the Image Manager.

See Modeling Tools > Building Models > Diagrams > Using the Image Manager

2)  I think Qwerty is right - the Notes and Text elements are coming from a Template diagram on which they have been set to Unselectable and the Note element contains a text string. I'm happy to be corrected though.
