Suggestions and Requests / Requirements Heirarchy
« on: March 15, 2005, 01:20:45 pm »
Provide the ability to automatically tag requirements so they can be easily identified by reference later. These could be by heirarchy or relative to naming template that could be created as the tagging method.

Thank you!

General Board / Links within EA
« on: September 23, 2002, 04:34:58 pm »
Does anyone know if there is a way to create a link between two different folders or two different anything. Ultimately when using the HTML out documentation it would be great to define the ability to point from one thing to another within the tool.

I know you can point to any URL by using the "HyperLink Details". But it won't point at anything within the EA environment. At least I couldn't find it.

If anyone knows how to do this or if there are plans to implement, that would be great to know as well.



General Board / Displaying URL's in RTF
« on: October 02, 2002, 03:11:05 pm »
I put URL hyperlinks in several of the "Files" tabs.

Does anyone know if you can display those URL's in the RTF documentation file?

I tried the "External Hyperlinks" check on the Rich Text Format Report, but nothing came out from that.

Thanks in Advance!

« on: June 05, 2002, 07:31:21 am »
I thought I could drag and drop a requirement on an object. but I keep getting an Auto Instance message and the requirement object ends up on the page!

But it doesn't put it in the "Responsibilities" tab!

Any help would be appreciated!

General Board / HTML Output question
« on: May 31, 2002, 06:12:04 pm »
Is there a way to include the "message Properties" that are connected to a relationship between to objects to come out in the HTML document?

This is in a collaboration document where I am showing the message names as they are initated by one object to another. This would be extremely useful since virtually everything else comes out.

thanks in advance!

General Board / Help! Project Browser Disappeared
« on: May 09, 2002, 03:15:14 pm »

my Project Browser has disappeared and I can't get to come back, so I can't access my project. It is the same with all of the projects, including the example one.

I have tried clicking on the button in the tool bar and nothing happens.

I have unloaded EA and reloaded, updated to the latest rev. NOTHING! I'm sure it is something simple, but I sure can't find it!  ???

Please help!

Thanks in advance!

General Board / Interface Lost
« on: March 26, 2002, 08:50:54 am »
I created a component diagram and put components in it WITH interfaces. I created a second component diagram, copied links of the components from previous to new and I lost the interfaces that show up in the first one. Any idea why I would have lost the interfaces on the second diagram? I have a third diagram with virtually identical components, all links and the interfaces show up fine!;-)

Any and all help appreciated!

PS. EA is a great product! This is just a personal endorsement, but i have also got several of my colleagues now using it!

General Board / Sequence Diagram Method Changing
« on: February 12, 2002, 12:53:36 pm »
The latest version of EA 4.60, I used to be able to change the source and/or destinations of the Method by right clicking and then select "Set Message Scope" and change the source and/or destination. Now, when I select a NEW source or destination, it seems to be "one off". I can get it to work, I just have to pick the "wrong" source or destination to get the one I REALLY want.

Maybe a New feature?

General Board / Scenario Tables in RTF Doc
« on: February 01, 2002, 04:54:53 pm »
It is not necessarily a big thing, but when a scenario diagram comes out of the RTF Doc, the table that is produced only has Headers on the first page.

Just wondering if that could be fixed?

General Board / Sequence Diagram RTF Documentation
« on: January 24, 2002, 12:15:42 pm »
I tried to document an object, boundary or any component in a Sequence Diagram and then see the notes and other information come out of the RTF document. None of it is produced. Is this normal? Not being able to show that information in the document is a real minus.

I think that is important to have it there. Unless I am missing how to access or display it in the RTF document. All of the checks are on but Changes and Defects.

Can you comment on that? Thanks!


General Board / EA Document Generation
« on: January 23, 2002, 10:02:47 am »
I wondered how easy it would be to have the RTF documents that are generated by the system, to be organized in a different structure. I create a folder to contain each UseCase, under that are other folders that manages each scenario that I document both with text in the scenario description and in an Activity Diagram. Is there anyway to put the diagrams at the beginning of the document and then present the Activity Diagram followed by the description of the individual steps that are outlined in the Activity Diagram. Unfortunately, having things in alphabetical order makes the organization of the document hard to understand.

Or another suggestion for a good template, I have followed Geri Schneider and Jason Winters examples in their book "Applying Use Cases". Their System Documents, UseCase Documents and Scenario Document Templates at and click on "templates" gives you there examples. Those work really well from a organization stand point. Or maybe there is a way for me to build my own template.

This maybe harder than I realize to do, but thought I would at least suggest it.
