Bugs and Issues / Re: Diagram Running Slow

Also, what kinds of element on the diagram, and how many? What other windows do you have docked (e.g. Traceability window)?

Perhaps the requested connection is not UML compliant? ;)

What are the UML base metaclasses of your source and target elements and connector? Have you used the _metatype attribute in your profile to define your stereotypes as metatypes? Have you tried using the new <<metarelationship>> or <<stereotype relationship>> connectors to define your valid connections?

Unfortunately, it isn't possible to override decorations in inherited shape scripts. EA will show all decorations for all stereotypes up the inheritance hierarchy.

Is your diagram locked? EA saves the profile options (filename etc) in the diagram's properties so it needs to be unlocked.

For diagram hyperlinks, you can change the display text either in the Notes window (Ctrl+Shift+1) or the Notes field of the Properties dialog (Alt+Return).

Just type boundary in the Base Class combo.

I've asked about the logic behind showing the the legend in the project browser and awaiting a response.

Don't take this as an official response, but my guess would be to make it easier to use on multiple diagrams.

Well you don't have to insert related elements but it's a quick way of seeing what connections exist.  Plus each element has a Related Links tab.

Not sure what you're saying in that first sentence
I do know that you can see connections through the elements property tabs, but that presumes that you know where the connector might be and can find the relevant element(s)

I think GB is saying that you can open the Insert Related Elements dialog to see that information; you don't have to actually insert anything.

And don't forget that you can use intellisense. Unfortunately, when typing a SQL statement like this into EA's SQL builder

select c.Connector_ID as id, from t_connector c where"External Reference"

you don't get intellisense when you type c. but if you type t_connector. then you will see all the fields available in that table.

Nothing to do with shape scripts, it's the nature of Bezier connectors. Bezier connectors have three points: the two end points and a control point that determines how far the line bends (visible if you select the connector). If you select and move both the source and target diagram objects at the same time, all three Bezier points will move by the same amount. If you only move one end, the control point won't move, so the line will bend to a different degree and you will probably need to adjust the control point manually.

The problem:
- In my MDG, how can I assign each diagram type to a specific perspective?

I think the only way to do this is to separate each diagram out into a different technology, because that is the granularity that perspectives work with.

I notice there's nothing in the Example Model. I don't know if Sparx Support have anything more substantial than what's in the help, but if you get in touch then the least they can do is record a feature request for additions to the Example Model.

One question - the view preference settings that control Alias usage on diagrams (ie 'Alias only' or 'Alias and Name', are these model settings or user settings?  If I turn on 'Alias and Name' will that be reflected in the model and other users get he same behaviour or will only I get this?

Everything in the Preferences dialog is a user setting, so only you will see it. (Although be aware that in a shared model, you may see elements resizing if they have more text to display, which may mess up other people's diagram layouts.)
