Control-A doesn't seem to work when attempting to select all of the text in either the Summary or Detail fields of the Description panel of the New Requirement dialogue and Properties dialogue boxes.

Thanks for the input.

Just as an asside:
Here is something everyone might want to try in the interim:
1) Download PHPedit and use this as your "Windows" based PHP editor. There is also a Linux version if you dig long enough. You can get PHPEdit at
2) Go to this thread in thier forum ( and download the  HelpGen2XMI plug-in for PHPEdit. This will allow you to do the following workflow:
    a) Generate a xml based Help file from your php scripts
    b) Generate an XMI file based on the xml help file for import into EA.

Now if only I can get everyone to work together using a common API for "inter-program" communications to do automatic roundtrip updates like TogetherJ does/did.


p.s. I'm still testing it myself. Your results may vary.

My understanding is that v3.6 will let me define languages in XML and then use the XML for reverse and forward engineering the code.

I haven't seen any documentation that show how to do this. I'm working on PHP and would be happy to contribute the XML pack to the group.

Currently I export UML from EA to XMI 1.0 and then use xmi2php to do code generation. This is great so long as you don't mind having to do EVERYTHING in EA before exporting the once and only final time.

Does anyone know how to add PHP (or any other language) as a new language type in EA?
