The auto-complete does not suggest .Execute because it is an undocumented function. Simply type it by hand and it will work.

Not sure I understand your question. But shape scripts are a usual way to modify the shape of stereotyped elements through MDG. If you extend a shape scripted element by your own MDG then your shape script should be taken instead of the base MDG. (I have never done it, but it seems logical.)

1) Taking Simon's warning you can fiddle around with the MDG. Quite some people have done so.

2) Send a bug report using the link bottom right.

Now that I've said that and if you're still insistent on taking that risk... Changing to Realization instead of Realisation may solve your problem.
That bad old heritage from UK. That will only vanish when the Queen eats at Burger King. Or America will have a King - without burger.

The source is owned by Sparx and I have not seen any sign they would make it available. Maybe if you put enough bread on the board the will shift it over.

You're creating a shortcut I have long time not used and would not recommend it. Instead of creating a MDG you simply import a profile. Try to run the MDG creation wizard with Tools/Generate MDG and then import that MDG.

Sounds a bit silly, but you need to try harder :-/ MDG creation is not very forgiving. Saving one XML to the wrong place on export, a buggy MDS or some simple typo (even wrong case) will result in a not working MDG. EA lets you stand alone in the rain with any such error. It doesn't even give you a hint where something might have went wrong. So my tip: sleep one night, have a good breakfast and go through the example exactly step by step.

These are actually tagged values belonging to the BPMN technology. If you want to see more inside you need to modify the MDG. That however is owned by Sparx and you need to check the copyrights. What you could do alternatively is to create your own MDG extending BPMN. That would allow to create own tagged values.

Search the forum for "visio". There are a number of threads.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Element Order in Diagrams

As soon as you use the manual set EA sets the Pos (or TPos) attribute so it reflects the tree order. The browser further orders packages, diagrams, and elements in groups.

Simply go ahead and send your request. Somehow Sparx will put more weight in a feature if it's requested by more than one person. At least many of us believe in that.

Your approach looks like the way I'll have to go - I was trying to avoid keeping data in 2 places, just doesn't seem right.
Absolutely. However, things often don't work the way we expect them to do. So does EA. This is one of the work arounds you need in such cases.

The "trick" is to create entries to DiagramConnectors for all present connectors and marking them invisible. That's what happens doing it manually. There is no single flag for all connectors.

Open the help and enter "shape script" in the search tab. The 2nd result shows example scripts. I guess the one in the middle is what you're after.

IIRC you can do that (though I haven't done that in particular).
