General Board / default line style changed
« on: February 22, 2017, 08:27:26 pm »

Since recently the default line style in BPMN 2.0 diagrams seem to have changed from "Orthogonal - Rounded" to "Direct".
We use a central repository (oracle dbms) and this problem only occurs in this repository. If I create a local file then I do not have this problem. If I use our test-environment-repository (backup from a few months ago) then I also do not have this problem.

We have a "Project Template Package", but it's practically empty and I also set the package to "<none>" and the problem still occurs.
The only addins that are active (on my computer anyway) are "ActivityAddin", "Visual Studio" and "Eclipse", I disabled all 3 and the problem still occurs.

We use EA 13.0.1307, it seems unrelated to this version as this issue didn't occur immediately after the release.

I found a topic with the same issue ( however the proposed solutions didn't work for us.
Before the problem occurred we wanted to change the line style from "Orthogonal - Rounded" to "Orthogonal - Square" (,37750.0.html). However, the change to the XML file was only done on the computer of 1 user. All our users experience the issue now, so it seems unrelated.

We have quite a few users, so maybe someone changed something?

Any help would be appreciated.

Kind regards,



I'm creating an overview of the different applications that exist in my company. My company also is active in several sectors. An application is not always used for every sector my company is active in.
In the diagram that I'm creating I would like it to be visible for which sector the application is used.

The applications are created as components and the sectors as activities. For the relationship I used the "Used By" relationship from ArchiMate.

The result is:

Now I would like it to be visible, without the arrows to be visible, for which sector the application is used, for example:

Is there any way to do this in EA, without having to manually draw the rectangles on each application?
Any help would be appreciated.
