Suggestions and Requests / Re: Drag and drop copy
« on: May 05, 2003, 02:25:48 am »
Hi Emma,

Thanks for granting my wish  :). But, my wish is somewhat different than implemented in build 610! I want to be able to drag and drop copy items in the projectbrowser, not to a diagram  :-/! Might also be appropriate to be able to use Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V in the projectbrowser the same way.

I'm not sure I need the newly implemented feature, two out of three options where already available using the Ctrl key and the third one? I don't think I will be using that one. I hope others will.


Suggestions and Requests / Drag and drop copy

Hi Sparx,

I would like the possibility in the projectbrowser to use drag and drop (while pressing Ctrl key) for copying elements (e.g. attributes). This is currently supported when dragging e.g. attributes from one class in the projectbrowser to another class in a view. But intuitivly ( :-/) I, and other users with me, would like to use the Windows kind of copy also.


Suggestions and Requests / Locking visibility
« on: October 21, 2003, 08:14:55 am »
Hi Sparx,

I would like to have some more information on locked packages and elements. When I now grouplock one tree in my project and login as another user that is not a member of the locking group, I can still select the lock package... menuitem in the contextmenu (projectbrowser).

The lockwindow that appears looks like I can change to any locking state, but only when I select one locking state, it tells me that I cannot lock the (tree of) package(s).

It might be nice to display a lock in the icons of the projectbrowser, just as versioncontrol and controlled packages. I furthermore think that one or more options in the lockwindow should be disabled when the selected item is locked by another group or user. Maybe even the locking group or user could be shown?

A small enhancement: the lockresult window that is shown when some or all the locks could not be applied shows "cannot lock" when the No Lock state is choosen, it might be nice to show "cannot UNlock".

Hi Sean,

Just to be sure, do you know that you can press F3 to create a new connection of the same type as the previous one?


Suggestions and Requests / Re: SCC Provider?

Hi Iran,

Do you have a SCC Provider installed for CVS? Such a driver is needed to work with CVS. Examples of such programs are: Jalindi Igloo, PushOk CVS Proxy or Tortoise.


Suggestions and Requests / Re: Don't Expand Dragged Nodes

I've seen this too in the last two or three builds. It is really annoying indeed.


Suggestions and Requests / Re: Class Operation
« on: June 02, 2003, 01:24:19 am »
Hi Peter,

There are some possibilities to tweak the way parameters are shown. Right-click on the background of an image, select Diagram Properties and look on the right side of the popup window.


Hi Arashid,

Yes, look for XMI (XML Model Interchange) in the forum and usermanuals on the site or helpfile (trail) Enterprise Architect.


Suggestions and Requests / Re: Requirements ducumentation
« on: May 20, 2003, 08:20:04 am »
Hi Marcello,

Please read the help file and / or user manual on creating RTF / HTML documentation.


Hi Gunnar,

OK, it indeed looks like a nice feature to have  :). Traceability is very important, any help with that is always good to have.


Hi Gunnar,

The following might be interesting for you: right-click on an element and select Create Link... This gives you the possibility to create links without a diagram.

By the way, links are also shown in the properties windows of elements, select the Link tab. Another possibility is to use the Relationship matrix, right-click on a folder and select Open in Relationship matrix.

Greetings and good luck,

Suggestions and Requests / Elements as packages
« on: April 10, 2003, 02:09:34 am »
Hi Sparx,

When I organise the projectbrowser, I tend to drag classes under a component, innerclasses under classes, "sub" UseCases under UseCases, etc.

EA gives me the possibitilty to do so in the projectbrowser, but in my opinion, that possilibity lacks the following features:
- Sorting of elements under parentelements;
- Reset sorting of elements under parentelements;
- RTF Documentation has difficulty handling nested elements: sorting and nesting is not properly done;
- Using automation for obtaining childelements of a parent: objects have packageIDs for that sort of automation, but I guess it will be harder to have something like a parentID (maybe instead of packageID  ???);

It might also be nice to automatically generate the correct relations when dragging elements under a parentelement:
- classes under a component: aggregation (as is already done when dragging a class on a component);
- classes under classes: innerclass;
- UseCases under UseCases: I believe <<extends>> dependency;

I'm not sure about UML specs on nesting, I guess that only packages allow nesting in UML. But I like the possibilities of EA on this feature.


Suggestions and Requests / Dependencies view in property window
« on: April 10, 2003, 01:06:47 am »
Hi Sparx,

It might be nice to also show more relations. I would like to see dependencies, Use assosiations (for the UseCase - actor - requirement tracing) in the dependencies view of the docked property window. To organise that view a bit, maybe a rightclick menu could be added for filtering specific relations.

I even like that window so much, that it would be very nice to be able to export & print that kind of views on the model.

The traceability matrix is nice, but the dependencies view gives more "in depth" views on traceability.


Suggestions and Requests / Properties (docked) window
« on: April 08, 2003, 04:57:35 am »
Hi Sparx teammembers,

Is it possible for the properties (docked) window to show the details for diagrams, attributes and methods as well. Currently the properties window shows no contents or is greyed out.

E.g. I currently use the notes area of a diagram to describe the contents of the diagram (obvious), but I now have to open the popup properties window for these details, while the docked properties window could show these details just the same.


General Board / Re: parallelism in sequence diagrams?
« on: August 23, 2004, 02:09:22 am »
You should be able to create a fragment in a sequence diagram (see toolbar), then change the properties of the fragment to a par type and add lanes (conditions) if you want to.

The messages still do not line up at the same height, but the fragment implies that all the messages in the fragment could occur parallel.

I don't have an example, but Zicom Mentor ( explains this type of fragment.
