Wow, the users need a decent search mechanism - that, at least, works like most smarter modern searches!  Let me put in an URGENT feature request on their behalf

Also alignment of labels where they are separate from the shape

Bugs and Issues / Re: Pinning ends and Line styles

I particularly don't like a (hidden) side effect of changing the line type.

Actually while on the subject there is an Options > Link for "New Connector Endpoints".
I have it sent to Centre-to-Centre

Center to center          Select this radio button to set the orientation of the dashed guide line for new connectors to anchor on the center of the source element and, as you approach the target element, the center of that element.
The guide line displays both when you are dragging the Quick Linker arrow and when you have dragged a connector icon from the Diagram Toolbox.

But as far as I can see it doesn't work, or at least work well.
I'd like the option to be extended to add the centre of a side, rather than the centre of the artefact.

also for moving an endpoint.

It is a shame, and would be a good feature request, to allow a connector to be moved using Shift-cursor keys in the same way as entities can be moved on a diagram.

In the diagram behaviour preferences you can set "AutoTidy" and "Tidy Line Gap", hope this helps

Also pinning the start or end of a connector can assist in maintaining control.

Now the problem is fixed, I was able to delete the restriction from here (Picture for menu and evidence):

Now all diagrams are exported!

Thanks all!
And yes you can embed images so they are visible

General Board / Re: Main menu in EA 13

In EA 13 under the Window icon (visible from all Ribbon tabs as it is on the far left) and then "Show toolbar' some of the earlier toolbars are still available, if this helps

EA V13 adds a Document Appearance Option "Document with background color" which may be what you are after.  Preferences> Diagram > Appearance

This has been raised previously, and I'm pretty sure, at least in the GUI, it can't be done

I'm also interested in this. Looking forward to an update.
To get an update you will have to submit a feature request to Sparx

General Board / Re: Breaking long element names
« on: April 03, 2017, 07:29:06 am »
You want us to re-invent a unicode character entry system that should exist as part of your OS?

And document the unicode standard within our user guide?
What I had I mind was:

Providing documentation in the EA user guide that indicated how a user could suggest to EA where to break long tokens (cf breaking hyphens), and maybe explain how EA does it algorithmically now.

Providing extra assistance to users by way of the UI so that:
  • users could easily create or remove a 'break suggestion'
  • users could easily see where the suggested break might be, e.g. ⏎"⏎"
  • the break suggestion would not impact searches, or use of names in other contexts, e.g. code generation (i.e. the break would not be part of the token)

I have no idea how you link diagrams.
But you could look at Report Generation, and specifically Virtual Documents

General Board / Re: Change language of all elements of a package
« on: March 29, 2017, 09:20:00 am »
A low tech way is to export the package, make the change with an editor (I use Notepad++) and import it.

General Board / Re: Link DFD data store to SQL Server Table
« on: March 29, 2017, 07:26:58 am »
A table isn't a diagram, so what you suggest won't work.
You would need to create a diagram with the specific table entity in it.
