General Board / How to manage or delete note to connector links
« on: November 28, 2013, 12:23:05 am »
I'm probably missing something very basic, but...

If I associate a note with an element, I get the dotted line connector between the element and the note, and I can select it, which means that I can delete it if I want, or pin the ends etc..

However if I associate a note with an existing connector between 2 other elements, I still get the new association/connector but I don't seem to be able to do anything with it.  In other words I'm stuck with it, can't select it or delete it etc..  but it moves with the Note if I move it.  How can I get rid of these connectors?

Anyone know whether there are service companies offering to manage EA as a service in the cloud?  

General Board / Productivity gains from using a modelling approach
« on: June 27, 2013, 11:16:44 pm »
I was wondering whether anyone has any hard examples/case studies and figures/numbers that provide a persuasive cost/benefit case for using an end to end modelling tool for software development, whether that's EA or something else.  

Intuitively we all know it's the way to go, but intuition on its own doesn't go down well with senior management.

General Board / HTML Output and External Hyperlinks
« on: May 23, 2013, 02:19:39 am »
In the HTML output, if you have links to files such as PDFs the file is opened in the main display frame, leaving the heading and browser frames in place.  

However if you have a hyperlink to an external web address, that causes the framed view to be lost when it's clicked and the full browser window is used to go to that internet address.   Does anyone know whether that can be changed to use the main display frame instead (just like with files) and if so how to make the change  (via the webstyle template perhaps) ?


General Board / Logical to Physical Data Model Transformation
« on: October 06, 2012, 03:36:59 am »
I've basically managed to get this to work for a simple logical model with a few tables and fields (attributes) with generic data types - I assume the "UML data types" - using the DDL transformation.   However some of the types, e.g. "int" don't seem to be translated to the target DBMS format and just get left as they are whether the target is Oracle, DB2 or whatever.  

So,  does anyone know where these generic UML data types are a) defined and b) where the mapping to DBMS data types is?


General Board / "EA doesn't do ANYTHING properly"  
« on: February 24, 2012, 04:10:49 am »
Paolo - I saw you mentioned in another thread that EA doesn't do anything properly - but it must have something for you to use it.  Perhaps you could explain what that is ?

General Board / RTF Styles - specifying the next paragraph style
« on: February 24, 2012, 05:01:27 am »
In Microsoft Word, each style definition has an option "Style for following paragraph" so that you can write something with one style, for example a heading using the "Heading 1" style and then when you press enter you don't get another "Heading 1" paragraph you get "Body Text" or whatever has been specified it should be.  

The RTF editor seems to understand this if you've imported a template from Word,  but is there anywhere where the following paragraph style can be specified from within the RTF editor ?

General Board / Shapescripts for BPMN elements
« on: October 12, 2010, 04:11:46 am »
Hi.  Just wondered about the shapes for these elements.  

Take the "end event"  smallish circle with thick border.  Does anyone know what the shapescript is, or where I can find it, that defines this shape plus its label so that I can replicate it on a different element ?

General Board / Note Hyperlinks - how do I get them to work ?
« on: May 20, 2010, 12:53:22 am »
I have added some hyperlinks to Notes in elements,  and they appear as you would expect, but when clicked either in EA or in HTML output they just do nothing.  Have I missed something and I need to switch an option on somewhere ?  Or could this be a bug  ?    Anyone got these new hyperlinks to work ?

General Board / Requirements Management products and EA
« on: April 24, 2010, 01:59:02 am »
Hello.  Has anyone had any exposure to/experience of the following
requirements management products ?

- Raven flow  
- Blueprint

They also both claim to interface to EA (amongst other products) for onward solution engineering. Anyone tried that ?

General Board / HTML Output - Stereotypes
« on: April 07, 2010, 01:35:27 am »
Does anyone know how to stop the stereotypes being added to the project browser tree equivalent that is created in the html output - you can switch these off when using EA natively  (tools/options/general/project browser) but I can't see at the moment where you would do this for the html output.


General Board / RTF Filters
« on: April 14, 2010, 01:49:49 am »
I am having a mental block.  I have an RTF template that reports on packages and elements and that template is specified for a model document that defines the packages to operate on.   The model document is then used in a master document with some standard free format sections.  Not a complex virtual document really.

As a one off I wanted to create the RTF output just for a subset of elements that had been changed over the last few days, so I thought I'd use the filter options on the RTF document generation dialogue as they are not persistent.   However I can't get any of the filters to actually work, it doesn't matter what I specify I get all the elements in the defined packages every time.  

I vaguely recall the fact that filters only work in certain circumstances but I can't find that in the help - anyone remember ?    Or should this actually work ?   this is 7.5 build 850

« on: April 15, 2010, 09:09:54 pm »
Congratulations to Sparx for getting version 8 out of the door.  

Just wondered though - what was added/fixed between beta 3 and the release ?   I can't seem to find the release notes
