General Board / is the structured activity node useful?
« on: December 07, 2016, 03:14:06 am »
i'd like to use the structured activity node to model a simple loop. unfortunately it seems that this node cannot be sized to be useful. it appears that the three sections of the node must be the same size. i've seen this questioned a number of times with no response either from anyone who knows how to do it properly or from any rep from EA.

i feel like a kid on the wrong side of the candy store window.


General Board / two shape script questions
« on: December 03, 2015, 04:29:21 am »

i'm using shape script to customize a shape. i'd like to be able to bolden some text like EA does for a class object on a class diagram as an example.

also, when a class is defined in say Package1 and exists as a link on a diagram in Package2 EA will prefix the class name with the package name (scoping). how can that be done in shape script? to be clear, when the class defined in Package1 is on a diagram in Package1 i want the name of the class, but when the class is on a diagram in Package2 i want the package name and the class name just like EA does.

i've pulled out lots of hair working out both of these problems and i already don't have much to spare.


General Board / Type Library?
« on: August 01, 2015, 12:46:25 am »
In my work group we create a lot of different projects that utilize the same c++ libraries. I'd like to be able to create something similar in EA, that is, a library that I can import into many EA projects that would contain defined types like certain classes that are used over and over as well as our own well known data types. Is this possible? I started to look at profiles but that seemed the wrong path to me as from what I can tell they appear to contain only abstract extensions to UML.


General Board / Show Notes appear to not be working
« on: May 21, 2015, 01:34:54 am »
I'm using EA V11 and am trying to show the notes of an element. i think have the proper check box checked in the "Features and Compartment Visibility" dialog box but nothing happens on my element. Does anyone know if this works or how it works?


Bugs and Issues / Auto save
« on: February 05, 2015, 03:23:17 am »
i am quite new to EA but have noticed something that is a little annoying. when editing a diagram sometimes i need to manually save my change(s) and sometimes i do not. is there some hidden option that controls this? i've searched the forum, help docs, and all menu items.

an example of this is in a class diagram if i move an object i must save it, if i only change the name of the class i do not.

using v11.1.1113
