Thanks for the rich notes. The rest is also about UML and I would prefer UML compliancy to everything bold.

And another one: adding of bookmarks in the text.

When I add an item from a model, I would like to have clickable in my RTF docs. :-)

Hi all,

formating in UC scenarios is here. Thank you Sparxians, thank you.

Can we get another gift in 7.1 - text strikethrough. For obsolate things we want to emphasize.

As a work around I will use grey.

You can see both directions in the Hierarchy pane or Relationship Matrix. As for the requirements Properties... it would be nice but not a must.

1. filter not realized requirements (more general: filter rows/culomns according to empty/not empty) as in;action=display;num=1196861504  
2. filter rows/columns according to stereotype (more specific: filter for functional requirements only)


Suggestions and Requests / Re: RTF report for a single diagram

A workaround only:
Drag&drop your diagram somewhere else and ensure you have "Document each contained element in RTF" checked.
Not good, but working.
This lead me to use more structured repository. Nowadays I have a package for nearly everything.

Yes, that would be nice. Use of the images should be consistent (I have read this word somewhere).

If you want to attach pictures to steretypes:
Try Settings | UML...
choose or set new stereotypes that you need (application, database, data warehouse, etc.) and set the picture (choose "Metafile" and "Assign" OR try shape scripts)
This needs external .emf or .wmf pictures.

I would like to be able to duplicate the document artifacts in the Project Browser with the Copy and Paste functionality but cannot figure out a way to do that. Can you help with this?

Hi Claudia,
you want to take an existing element and make a new one with all attributes same, do you?
1. Move all elements you want to duplicate in an empty folder.
2. From the context menu (right click) pick Import/Export | Export package to XMI file...
3. Export it (defaults are OK)
4. Drag the original elements back, where it belongs
5. Use context menu on a target folder. Pick Import/Export | Import package from XMI file...
6. Make sure you checked "Strip GUID"
7. Import

Hope it is clearer now.

For copying (same element with different GUID, not connected to the original one) you can use XMI export - import. Check the Strip GUID box when importing.
As the feature works on packages only you have to drag and drop the element into new one.

HTH, Bary

For the same (or similar purpose) I use Profiles from the Resources Pane. The benefit is that I have stereotyped elements in my Profiles.

What we use, is an NT autentification, and it works without need to rewrite userID and password all the time. If your security policy allows this, it may help you.

I like that something is on the move. As an experienced user I do not have use for the basic (for me) general concepts. Context sensitive tips, hints and best practices are  another level of information support.
Anyway, thank you for your reply. It is nice to read that someone will look at it.
Thank you,

Hi RoyC,
the EAHelp is very friendly in comparison with other tools I had used.
The question is not how to find an answer, but how to find the right question. In EA (and it's UI) there are many of nice features we do not know about. Things working not the way I would expect. Helpful features that I don't even know they exist.
Some hard-paid examples: Link element feature to Note, Shallow copying, Direction arrows on association labels, Red-triangle bookmarks

I am thinking of context tips or at least bestpractices pane. (Both optional and set default off.)

Votes, thoughts?
