Tried with V12 and 1421. No issue there. Maybe your diagram is locked. Or - Windoze - reboot once.

I guess you can't. I seem to remember having had similar issues and there has been a recent similar posting here.

Send a bug report. Don't hold your breath.

General Board / Re: When to use instance and property
« on: October 29, 2018, 11:48:16 pm »
Well, an instance (in UML) is the representation of something concrete. A company orders a certain type of hardware from a certain company. Those are blueprints (classes). Once you purchase a piece with a serial number you have an instance. Of course you can have this configured with different parts. They are also taken from a drawer (have a blueprint). So you get an assembled device instances consisting of likewise instantiated parts.

Abstraction is something very abstract. Classes are an abstraction of things. And you have even abstract classes (which can not be instantiated). Now, what is an instance? You know what an oak is. Probably when looking out of the window you can see several (like I can right now). You clearly recognize them as oaks. But when you look just a bit closer you see that they differ completely. I mean not just a bit, but heavily. Now, what you do in your model is to leave out things. The more you leave out, the more abstract it is. If you leave out very much you end up in "plant", rather than oak. Being more specific you have "black oak". And so on...

Hmm, apples and pears being compared here? An instance is something concrete made from a blueprint. A property is something that makes the blueprint (and its instance) unique.

I don't enjoy complaining. Not at all. I'd enjoy to have no reason for complaining.

I know: fake news and witch hunt...

What I thought: having only hammer as tool, anything is a nail :-/ I usually kick as much butts as I can when people come with such requirements.Of course sometimes you're not in the position to do that.

In former versions it was Structural Elements. It's gone with V14. Sparxians will probably call it Enhanced User Experience :-/

What's the reason for having Excel tables with thousands of rows? Nobody can handle them. Things that large need to go to a database instead.

Someone else asked for the Search variant of that which is similarly broken (obviously ever since). However, this one seems to work with me.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Scripting

I don't use the ribbon versions of EA, but maybe you can use the Find in the Start which eventually will point you to Scripting.

Just ask him for a quotation for remote support and he'll eventually come up with something ;-)

Aaawww, that's EA. The "Type" in the requirements is the stereotype. But not alone. It has some magic spice that EA digests. I just stumbled over that. When you put "Issue" in the stereotype it will make a Requirement into an Issue. Somehow it changes the display in browser. Not going to investigate that in detail. I would recommend to not use the "standard" requirements/issues etc. from EA's profile since it's Sparxian. Make your own in your MDG (I just had my new MDG not working while I was fiddling with the defaults).

General Board / Re: Hide stereotype on Information Items Conveyed

I did not intend to say that using the profile is bad. It's just that SysML has its own origins and rule sets. The latter will be kept even if one day SysML might be just completely an UML dialect (which from my POV is a good thing).

It depends. SysML is a language of it's own and EA just mimics it with a profile. Personally I went my own SysML way by explicitly borrowing certain parts and create my own dialect. So in that domain it was perfect to mix with "normal" UML elements. However, if you're in a strict SysML domain you should look into what the SysML specs say. I'm no expert here, but other guys here are. But my guess would be that normal UML is just not allowed.

General Board / Re: Export to CSV in specific order
« on: October 25, 2018, 07:17:00 pm »
I don't use the CSV export (because it's easier for me to script it in case I need it). You should take a look into the CSV export scripts that come along with the EAScriptLib which can be adapted quite easily. Or you take a look into Geert's export script.
