General Board / Re: Using a Tooltip to Display Diagram Element Notes
« on: November 19, 2018, 09:59:45 am »
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.

If you have any general comments or queries on the Pro Cloud Server or Prolaborate, you can post them in this category.

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"?

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.

Bugs and Issues / Re: CSV Import Character Encoding
« on: September 20, 2018, 02:07:38 pm »
Try the ribbon Publish > Model Exchange > CSV > CSV Import/Export.

For source code, look at the ribbon Configure > Model > Options > Source Code Engineering


You need to display the Diagram Properties DIALOG and select the Connectors page. The last item on this page is the Connector Notation field.

To display the dialog, right-click on the background of the open diagram and select the Properties option.

Qwerty, I think those are the Provided and Required Interface modes of the Exposed Interface element that Richard appears to have already discarded.

I'm not sure what kind of guide you might be referring to. Would this help?

EA 15.5?  Should that be 13.5?

Bookmarks are implemented in EA 14, as described on the page that Arshad references, except that the ribbon option is 'Design > Element > Edit > Bookmark'.

If you don't want the bookmark to display, click on the element and select the ribbon option again.
