Suggestions and Requests / Re: Model Transform: Optional Diagram Creation
« on: November 01, 2016, 01:26:45 am »
Although this topic is quite old, it still is valuable. I'm currently working with MDA a lot as well and desire the same improvement.
For example, I generate a Java package structure where the transformed classes are 4 to 6 levels of packages deep. This results in many packages that just hold a namespace part and have a diagram that's not usefull.

Just to keep Q&A complete, the answer to this question is posted in topic,10975.0.html.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Real Time in-line applications

Do you have any hints on what features you would like? UML is an OO modelling language, not (really) suitable for structural (or as you as in-line) programming. I know there's still a lot of C programming going on, but I'm not sure what features in EA you think would be beneficial.

Yep, would like this feature as well.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Relationship matrix irks

I'll add my vote to both the relationship window and the navigation features! (Speed of) Useability is very important for acceptance of EA to new users, it might even be more important than more new functionality.

I'm still interested in multi select too.

Yes, I would like to see this feature too!

Got my vote here.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Request: Undo/Redo enhance!
« on: January 06, 2004, 04:44:43 am »
Hi Pavus,

Changes to the projectbrowser are immediate, changes on a diagram are saved on loading a new diagram. If you exit, all should be saved.

Could you indicate which changes are saved and which not?


P.s.: I would also expect a more mature Undo(/Redo) functionality, many of the users get frustrated by the lack of it. I also know this is a heavy requirement which could take lotst of time to implement and test.

Suggestions and Requests / More detailed RTF generation keywords needed
« on: October 15, 2003, 07:51:53 am »
Hi Sparx,

I know this request has been placed many times on this board, but I still have problems with it:

Could the RTF document generation template include more detailed keywords, just like the HTML document generation template?

Currently, I noticed that in the attribute line item, a newline is inserted between the scope and the type. This increases the number of pages in my documents and reduces the readability greatly. I now have to do a lot of manual tweaking to the RTF before its useable.

Hi Bruno,

You can add my vote for this feature. I find myself in the same position for elements as well as for changing or moving / copying attributes and methods.


Suggestions and Requests / Re: Deleting an object

Hi Bruno,

Do you know that the Relationships window can be used to show the existing relations for the item you want to delete?

Thanks Bruno. I also would like to see those improvements on locking.


Suggestions and Requests / Request: Relationship matrix useability
« on: October 09, 2003, 05:06:10 am »
Hi Sparx,

I'm starting to use the Relationship matrix more and more, but the useability of this matrix is very poor. The following enhancements would lighten my job severly:

  • When rightclicking a cell and selecting "Create new relationship", the relation is added for the selected cell, which might differ from the cell on which is right-clicked; Same applies to Delete Relationship (even 3 clicks, confirm needed); Solution: make the right-clicked cell the selected cell;
  • Adding and deleting a relationship is two clicks away, which is not effective when a lot of relationships need to be inserted; Solution: use the spacebar to toggle a relation on and off;
  • Before I insert a relation, I want to see the properties of the source or target of the selected cell, this is now only possible when a relationship is made; Solution: enable the Show Source/Target Properties menuitems when no relationship is available, use the column/row items to resolve the source/target;
  • Sorting is possible using alphabetic order or no order; I would like the have an axis ordered based on project hierarcy;

Keep up the good work on EA, it still is an excellent product and I cannot even keep up with the new features to try them out  ;);


Suggestions and Requests / Scope defaults and empty scope
« on: November 06, 2003, 01:15:06 am »
Hi sparx,

Could it be possible to include a selection of the default scope for inserted elements (which is always public now) in the options?

Could it also be possible to leave the scope empty (it is already a non-accepted value in the dropdown box of the docked property window)?

There is now something called Element Templates, but these cover only the appearance on specific diagram types. It might be nice te be able to have element templates for their properties (not only the scope mentioned above, but also e.g. status).

When I'm writing requirements that need to be read by a client, I now have to set all properties for each element. I, e.g., set the scope to package to not show any icon in the diagrams (requirements overview), if I could set the scope to no value, it would remove the cluttering in my (RTF) reports by mentioning scopes that do not tell my client anything.
