Suggestions and Requests / Insert related elements on multiple selection
« on: September 22, 2014, 06:20:34 pm »
It seems that the "Insert related elements" option on the popup menu in a diagram is only available when selecting a single element but it is not an option when selecting multiple elements (database views in my case).

Please include it as an option when selecting more than one element in a diagram.

Many thanks

Suggestions and Requests / Code engeneering - Groovy
« on: July 26, 2011, 07:18:07 pm »
Would be nice to be able to import Groovy script and generate classes from the scripts.


Please include an option under Diagram Property / Connectors to be a bit more specific about hiding labels that apply to all elements on the diagram.

Specifically to hide target and source labels. Currently it is only possible to hide all labels which is not granular enough and going to each connector and changing the label visibility is tedious.

Many thanks

Suggestions and Requests / v9Beta 3 - view DDL before generating
« on: May 12, 2011, 10:37:30 pm »
Currently it is only possible to view the DDL after generting the file, it would be more useful in some cases to view the DDL and perhaps just copy to clipboard without needing a file generated.

I couldn't figure out why if I click view nothing happens (doesn't warn you that you must first generate the file before being able to view), having a view option gives the impression that I can just view the DDL that is about to be generated.

General Board / Support code engineering - Groovy
« on: July 26, 2011, 03:22:01 am »
Does / will EA support generating elements from Groovy?  I tried using Java and specifying the exentsion as .groovy but no luck.

I have a lot of Groovy codee that I need to document so that we can re-engineer in plain JAVA, was hoping there is a way to do with with EA.

Cheers   ;)

General Board / Fill on border boundary diagram item
« on: May 26, 2011, 05:56:09 pm »
I am using v 9.04

Why can't I set a fill / background colour on a boundary object on my diagram. I understand it's a "boundary" for boxing objects but for documentation (i.e. copy paste to Word) it looks very plain without a fill colour and gradient.

Cheers   :-?

General Board / Microsoft Visio - stupid question?
« on: May 17, 2011, 12:27:42 am »
Does EA integrate with Visio 2010? Is it an add-on or a future enhancement?


General Board / Generate SQL from data model diagram
« on: May 12, 2011, 10:33:15 pm »
v9Beta3 - is it possible to generate SQL along with the DDL from a data model?

I want to genereate the select statement with joins etc from the data model, seems like an simple enough thing to do if the DDL is being generate but for the life of me I can't find a way of doing it.

BTW - I have the corporate version, not sure if that makes a difference.

Cheers  8-)

General Board / Importing a view does not contain attributes
« on: May 06, 2011, 09:06:12 pm »
Why when I import a table it is created as a class with attributes but when I import a view it does not create it as a class and recognise the columns as attributes?

I get the relationships to the parent classes but I want to display the view as a class with the attributes it contains, which is not clear on the diagram.

General Board / Disable automatic popup of properties box
« on: May 03, 2011, 10:02:00 pm »
How do I disable automatic popup of the properties box when adding a new element to a diagram?

I just want to add all elements then go and edit them.

(version 9 beta 3)   :-?

General Board / Facts and dimensions for database design
« on: April 29, 2011, 05:42:33 pm »
How do I document facts and dimensions for a database ADS? I can't find anything other than standard ERD diagramming (version 9 beta3)  :-?

Bugs and Issues / Tables with more than one relationship overlap
« on: May 20, 2011, 05:22:10 am »
If I import tables and 2 tables share more than 1 associations one overlaps the other so it looks like a single relationship, I have to drag the line to see the other one. Sometimes I only find out about the other relationship when moving the elements around on the diagram.

It is highly irritating. Now I have to re-align all the elements just in case there is an overlap when creating a diagram from the table elements I am using.

Bugs and Issues / v9beta 3 - generating DDL from select tables
« on: May 12, 2011, 10:28:08 pm »
I am having a problems when generating DDL from a diagram.

I select all elements then generate DDL but only one of the tables is included in the output. Shouldn't the DDL output include all elements selected?
