General Board / Importing Swim lanes from Visio
« on: April 14, 2016, 05:52:26 pm »
Dear members, does anyone know a solution for importing pools and swim lanes from Visio into EA v 12? When I tried it they arrive in EA as Boundaries. This is worse than visio because for example making the text vertical is not possible etc. Thanks

To help create object description, requirements and so on. Whilst typing the text matching popups appear as suggestions from the glossary. Re-use definitions and concepts rather than re-inventing nouns.

General Board / Importing Glossary to EA

Hi all, and Geert, I have the eaexcelimporter from Geert but cannot work out how to import my glossary to the EA model. Does anyone have a simple cook book of instructions. When I run the import csv option it says it was successful but where the glossary went I have no idea. How do I assign the imported glossary information to the actual glossary property file?

Hi,  Does anyone know how to use the 'Select composite diagram' that is available in version 12 in version 9? I am in the process of upgrading but need to use child diagram for BPMN is several level 1 processes or Activities. Its very unclear in v 9 how to achieve this. So in Summary I need a Many to one relationship between Parents and a child process model. Thanks

General Board / BPMN layers and creating Child diagrams

Dear members, I tried making a BPMN model from level 1 to 3 but it was not obvious to me the best way to create child diagrams when the child is used in multiple processes as a child owned by many parents. I find hyperlinks rather clumsy. Is there a smarter way to do is so I can for example just click on a process and immediately go to the child diagram (Used in many places).

Dear Members, does anyone know the average size (MB/GB) of a 30 user repository database?

We are setting one up and want to cater for some growth over the coming years.

Kind regards
