I suspect that some ideas of how you go about using EA effectively may be appreciated by newbies.

If you are not able to provide a brief (long!?) howto then some pointers as to how you arrived at your enlightened state would be appreciated. I.e. books, papers, courses or even just experiences.

I downloaded the EA.chm 7.0.818 file and placed this in my EA installation directory. It does indeed mention these "Rich Text Notes".

I installed the 7.0.818 upgrade zip and do not appear to have these "Rich Text Notes" available to be used. I double click on a model element and have a plain notes section with no rich text features available!?

No need for discussion.

As I was long ago taught "the customer is always right as he pays your wages".

Suggestions and Requests / EA Future Path?
« on: December 11, 2007, 02:25:40 am »
How can users/customers influence the future development of EA? I.e. how can we find out how Sparx intends to develop EA? How can we influence that development?

The feeling I get here is that a lot of people would like to see niggles in the UI sorted out before more new leading edge features.

I actually think that Sparx could do no harm in implementing most (if not all) of what Paolo Cantoni suggests. He appears to be a power user who has exercised bits of EA that most normal users don't know even exist.

I develop/support a flagship product for my company. The company informs customers of the development path in various ways (newsletters/user conferences/web). It sometimes asks for feedback on those development plans. In fact a number of products will now only add on customer specified features.

I have no problem with the update strategy being limited to registered users.

Just my 1p.

I must admit that this would probably prove useful for us too.

Have you raised a fault report about this?

I know from experience that schema processing is non-trivial.

Suggestions and Requests / Voting for fixes/enhancements?
« on: March 07, 2007, 05:22:41 am »
Is there any chance of having a system whereby registered users/licensed users can vote for fixes/enhancements?

In that way the most popular ones would get fixed first.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Maximise diagram?

Being a newbie I obviously wasn't aware of the Custom Layouts option.

However, having tried it out it wasn't as intuitive or easy as the maximise/restore option in Eclipse.

The custom layouts could possibly be acceptable if there was a way to shortcut between the layouts - e.g. selectable ctl/alt keys to switch the layouts.

As far as I can see there is no such option?

Suggestions and Requests / Maximise diagram?

A neat feature that I like in Eclipse and would like to see in EA is the ability to "maximise" the current diagram. I couldn't see an obvious way of doing this in EA? It may already be present.

In Eclipse I can maximise the current set of source files just by clicking on the "maximise" button. Obviously the "maximise" button becomes "restore" when in the maximised state.

The advantage of this is that when one has a large diagram (e.g. after having imported a large Java/C++ project) it would be nice to be able to double the screen area devoted to diagrams without have to close all navigation/support windows.

It seems that one can have template classes but not template interfaces? Java has template interfaces too (e.g. java.util.Collection) which was what I was attempting to model and discovered that I can't as the "details" tab does not display for interfaces?

General Board / Java Package Dependencies?
« on: January 16, 2009, 09:34:54 pm »
Suppose I import a whole load of Java code into EA.
Is there a view that allows me to see dependencies between packages rather than classes?

General Board / Attributes/Associations?
« on: January 30, 2008, 11:26:08 pm »
If I add 2 classes to a diagram (A+B) and A has an instance of B. Is it possible to request the diagram to discover the associations between the classes present and show them? I.e. fill in the missing associations?

I think that the book "Use Case Driven Object Modeling with UML" is a relatively good guide to try and put it all together.

Please note that I don't work for Iconix I just think it is a good book.

Or see if you can get an answer directly from the Iconix people.
