Yes I also prefer to go with something simpler that just works.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Undo - please!
« on: June 02, 2005, 11:37:15 am »
Since like most other modelling tools using repositories, any changes are immediately reflected in the database, so there isn't much one can do I am afraid.

You could always make a backup before each editing sessions just in case.

Yes but what then is the relationship between the original RTF-template and the final result that I want? If I do not know this then I cannot change the template.

Also, how can I edit the template directly, e.g. without having to use the interface?

I guess I could export to an XMI-file, play around with the contents and then somehow re-import it. Is that a possibility?

Suggestions and Requests / Insert other field types in RTF-template
« on: June 04, 2005, 01:04:08 pm »
I would like to be able to insert other fields in the RTF-template, e.g. index, table of figures, etc.

Suggestions and Requests / Formatting RTF-output
« on: June 04, 2005, 01:07:36 pm »
I'd also like to see a more generic way to format output according to simple expressions/comparisons, e.g.

if Att.IsOrdered equals '1' print 'yes' else print 'no'

This would be really great (though I'm worried I might be asking too much too quickly).

Suggestions and Requests / More exposed object model stuff
« on: June 04, 2005, 01:00:06 pm »
I would really like to see more of the object model stuff exposed for automated printing in the RTF-template document generation.

As it stands now there is still alot more that could be included.

General Board / How much to upgrade
« on: November 16, 2005, 12:49:39 am »
I currently have a license for EA Corporate v5_772  (which never expires).

If I upgrade to version 6, do I need to purchase a different license?

Thanks alot in advance.

If you place the cursor between the yellow tags and click on the right mouse button, you should see a list of items which can be inserted.

General Board / Re: Text Protection error.
« on: June 07, 2005, 05:58:43 am »

This is still driving me nuts. Sometimes when I change the width of a column, a field gets protected out of the blue and it is impossible to change it back.

According to the documentation there should be some option available under the Other menu, but this is nowhere to be found.

Help me please, kind folks at Sparx Systems.

General Board / Text Protection error.
« on: June 03, 2005, 05:07:34 am »
After I have made some changes to the RTF-template and run a generate, I get the following error message:

Code: [Select]
Text Protection error.

This selection contains protected text.

I press the [OK]-button and this is repeated a million times and then the only way to get out of this infinite loop is to abort and then kill EA altogether via the task manager.

Can a kind EA-representative help me with this one please?

Thanks alot in advance.

General Board / Connectivity problems
« on: June 07, 2005, 12:21:09 pm »
Has anyone else noticed that this domain times out regularly?

During some periods of the day my browser fails with the error that cannot be found, but if I refresh enough times I can finally reach it again.

Just wondering is all.

General Board / Re: How setup server repository?????
« on: June 07, 2005, 12:16:33 pm »
You'll need to create a table, download the example sql-file provided somewhere as a download on this site, import/run that script in order to create all of the tables and their contents. Afterwards, create a dummy EAP-file (for example, based on the EABase template), and then when that is all done, choose Tools | Data Management | Data Transfer ... | .EAP to DBMS, choosing the dummy EAP-file as input and the newly created table as output.

Kind of a alot of steps for something so simple, but I understood from the kind folks here that they would be implementing it in an upcoming version.

Have fun.

General Board / New RTF-document fixes, when and how
« on: June 04, 2005, 12:55:39 pm »
Hi there, I noticed that in the latest v5.00.766 upgrade that a number of fixes for the RTF-document (generation) have been made.

Does this mean that for all existing repositories the new fixes will take effect, or do they only start to work once a brand-new repository is created from scratch?

Thanks again for the quick service.

General Board / Re: Creating new Style
« on: June 04, 2005, 01:09:59 pm »
Yes, I was also wondering about the style stuff, as the documentation is pretty thin here.

For example, say I want to number heading1 and/or change the font-size for heading3, etc.
