If Autocomplete is on, you just have to hit the cursor key to pick up your last value.
But yes, a usability annoyance that could be fixed by a YaBB tweak that could be done by Sparx - after all, they have had to configure certain things to start with.

Some time ago I asked about having more control over autonumbering - e.g. being able to specify a template or hierarchy or 'format string', but heard nothing further.;action=display;num=1097072326;start=3#3

My interest was in being able to generate hierarchical autonumbered requirements numbering e.g.

A bit of thought into templatised autonumbering would give a really powerful facility - if you're turned on by that kind of thing ;-)

But even a simple mechanism would, it seems, prove a big plus from the current feature.

Or better still, autonumber by template which would allow you to specify where you wanted the number - could then also allow you to add hierarchies and (e.g.) package identifiers ... ?

My Menubar link to Sparx forums consists of the Recent Posts URL (

That way I keep an eye on any new items of interest.

How hard is that ?!

Come on you guys - you've had 18 years of lording it over us, and you have better weather.

I thought that Aussies didn't whinge, said "fair do's, ya beat us" and just got on with things.

To paraphrase someone or other, "what would Crocodile Dundee have said ?"

I have found that EA does not have good methods for coverage and traceability - needed for requirements and testing, apart from anything else.

If people keep making suggestions and requests, perhaps this will be addressed.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: RTF support in notes and scenario
« on: May 26, 2005, 02:47:21 am »
Some people are never satisfied ;-)

I think that RTF-enabling notes and scenarios would create problems if these fields are used from Automation - maybe a very simple 'readable' BB or Wiki-style markup would be a good compromise, just to give (e.g.)
* lists
and *Bold*, /Italic/

which would be easy to parse out (or even just treat literally) if using Automation.

Having RTF in there would be a nightmare otherwise !!

Mind you, checking back on my posts here, I always have a "higher than usual" sensitivity to Requirements and Test issues !
