Bugs and Issues / 9.0 generated html
« on: May 20, 2011, 08:19:58 am »
When opening a file:// of EA 9 generated html it fails to open in Chrome (hangs saying loading) or Firefox (blank page) {latest versions}.
IE 8 works fine.
Opera suggests that you set opera:config#UserPrefs|AllowFileXMLHttpRequest (paste into address) and then works fine.

Bugs and Issues / 9.0 Connectors with notes
« on: May 18, 2011, 09:53:31 am »

How do I remove one of the note connectors.
I can't select them (yes diagram is unlocked, I just added the note).

Bugs and Issues / 9.0 Embed picture
« on: May 09, 2011, 10:02:42 am »
In the RTF editor the "Insert | Embed picture..."
requires enhancement

1) the file extensions "jpeg" and "tiff" are not supported, they should be

2) hope a list of file all image types, to make it more usable


Bugs and Issues / Using Element filters in Document options
« on: December 10, 2010, 08:06:34 am »
I have created a tag, named "NSI", with a value "Omitted".
I wish to use this in a model document template in the Document Options Element Filter.

Because there are a large number of elements I have added the tag (NSI) only to some of them.
I'd like to use the tags to filter out of the reports elements as follows:
print all elements unless that had a tag "NSI" which has a value "Omitted".

I can't figure out how to specify this to get it to work.
I've been trying the simple case of simply filtering out the elements with a tag value of "Omitted" but I can't even get this to work.

When I use this filter I get the exact opposite of what I wanted, ONLY the elements with the tag value Omitted are included in the document!

The really odd thing about this is that regardless of the condition being set to equals or not equals the same document is generated.

Bugs and Issues / Using access 2007
« on: December 01, 2010, 07:56:39 am »
I upsized to Access 2007, viz
Using Access 2007, open a .EAP file and allow Access to convert it to a .ACCDB file. This forms the Access 2007 repository.

There was one conversion error

-3831: The current file format no longer supports user-level security. The conversion or compaction process has removed any user-level permissions.

As my EAP file already contained the (Jet 4) project, why is step two required?

Bugs and Issues / Copy and paste diagram looses formatting
« on: November 24, 2010, 07:44:34 am »
I have used the 8.0 feature to copy a diagram, then paste the diagram (shallow) (EA on SQL Server with security enabled).

Unfortunately a number of elements loose these formatting.

It appears that this occurs that this is because some elements in the diagram (originating from other packages) were locked.

It seems to be that this is a bug because 'expected behaviour' would be to copy both elements and formatting regardless of the lock status.

Formatting that is lost included alternate images, font size, font colour, background colour, and note position on data objects.

Bugs and Issues / Find in all diagrams ctrl-U does not find model do
« on: November 02, 2010, 02:47:20 pm »
Model documents reference packages.

However using the project browser, the "find package in all diagrams" command,
packages referenced in master/model documents are not found.

Surely this is a bug!

Bugs and Issues / Copy diagram from one model to another
« on: October 21, 2010, 07:05:05 am »
I have two EA models open, in separate instances of EA.

I use copy diagram to load the clipboard

However the other instance of EA does not recognise that there is anything to paste

This looks buggy. Before I report it I'd welcome any thoughts

Bugs and Issues / 861 hangs on startup
« on: August 23, 2010, 08:41:34 am »
Just wondering if anyone else has this problem.

EA is started from a desktop shortcut which includes link directly to model. This has been working well for several versions.

This appears to happen only after machine has been started.

EA prompts for DB password, then hangs running one core at 100% (tried waiting for 2 hours once and still hanging)
When killed and the procedure is repeated it starts fine

Environment WXPSP3 client. S2003 back end with SLQ Server 2005.

Bugs and Issues / Strategic modelling - Strategic Map
« on: June 22, 2010, 02:00:28 pm »
EA has recently added "Strategic Modelling" tools, and specifically a "Strategic Map".

Both the built in help and the EA guide on the website are silent about these tools. (so are the forums)

Can anyone point me in the direction of some documentation.

Why do I want this?
I want to understand the objects provided in the tool,
and specifically why I can't add an action to a (custom)  diagram strategic map.


Bugs and Issues / Display alias under name
« on: June 23, 2010, 12:29:43 pm »
I want to display the alias under the name on an artifact.
Any suggestions for how I could achieve this



Bugs and Issues / 856 EA CPU bound
« on: June 03, 2010, 08:21:34 am »
I've go EA CPU bound after trying the Spring layout.
Has anyone seen something like this?

How can I capture some crash data for Sparx to diagnose, since it hasn't crash.

Where is that black box I've been wanting?

Bugs and Issues / 846 Legends in generated documents
« on: May 31, 2010, 08:23:57 am »
I have the following legend in a diagram.

When I generate my document this is the legend that is displayed.

has anyone else observed this problem?

I believe this may also be an issue in recent earlier versions of EA?

Bugs and Issues / 856 COpy diagram image to clipboard.
« on: May 31, 2010, 08:39:24 am »
In windows has anyone noticed that Diagram | Copy image
does not produce an image on the clipboard that can be pasted to MS Picture Manager.

Yet the picture can be pasted to Word.

I'm wondering if EA is not correctly creating the clipboard data for the image.

Bugs and Issues / 856 Install
« on: May 27, 2010, 02:59:55 pm »
I installed 856(v8.0) over 850 (v7.5) on WXP SP3.
As part of the install in automatically uninstalled (with my permission) 7.5.

Unfortunately what it did do was also uninstall my customised
  • normal.rtl
  • EABase.eap (Jet4)
I believe that it is unacceptable to delete customised user data such as these files on an upgrade.

This raises a larger issue for which there may be an answer, but I can't locate it.

There should be a means to specify a shared (network) location for normal.rtf and EABase.eap.
Wherever they are they should no longer be installed into the program files directory on Windows.
