Bugs and Issues / Re: MDG Load Error Logs Needed
« on: August 31, 2018, 08:51:30 am »
These guys just don't know what error logs are. I asked for that ages ago and never ever I saw the slightest improvements. This hidden "dberror.txt"  speaks for itself. They have a so called System Log window but it shows only messages created by (user) script. Bah!

It's not like Windows doesn't have a extensive logging subsystem built in.

It is a shame that the EA Tool does not generate a log file when 'internal errors' occur as this would be very helpful.

My personal feeling is this is something the EA Tool should be handling 'better'. It reports an error - but - performs the action, e.g. add 'Business Event' to a diagram.

Have you looked in dberror.txt?

You're asking a language\notation specific question without specifying what language\notation you are using.

I'm sure I don't understand this properly, but this makes me think that requirements entered in the specifications manager are not the same as requirements in other sections of EA. Is that correct?  I was actually thinking that using this specifications manager was just another method to enter requirements to the same data structures.

The requirements are all the same.  There are a lot of options in document templates, including filtering.  You may want to spend some time researching the documentation function so you can adjust the templates you use to the way you build your models.

Not knowing what document template you are using I'd have to suggest that you are using a template that looks at the diagram not at the package.

Rotate the screen? Does it have servos?
Probably you have some Windoze settings that capture the key combination.

IIRC it is the display chipset software not native windows.  Most have configurable key combinations.  There seems to be an unofficial convention tho for what the defaults are.  It may even be in the WHQL specs somewhere.

We've had a lot of fun when people leave their machines unlocked by software rotating one monitor, physically rotating the other, and changing their mouse to left handed.

Are you saying that all displays are running at 200% DPI scaling, or are you running mixed scaling?
Mixed scaling - the Desktop screens are running at 100%

This may not be a strictly EA problem.  I was recently helping out with some debugging and it looks like things can get weird with mixed scaling and surface screens.  In the advanced systems settings you can turn off a lot of the visual effects like windows animations (sorry can't tell you the exact menu 'cause my work laptop is locked down).  Try setting it to performance so all the visual effects are turned off and try again.  From my experience that will make scaling problems go away or get much much worse :-)  If it does make a big difference you can then progressively activate the effects until you find what is causing the window to misbehave.

Please do not create Zombie threads.  If you have an issue create a post in the appropriate board, in this case Bugs and Issues.

Don't under estimate yourself. You are travelling forward into the future one second at a time.

In a block universe that is reference frame dependent.

It seems like you are operating across a WAN, you really need to use the WAN accelerator.  As well as decreasing the chatter across the wire it's going to simplify the authentication across domains.

Bugs and Issues / Re: v14 long lasting bugs

New features could drive sales.  A bug that gets very few reports - beyond the mavens here - probably are not cost effective to fix outside of when the code that contains them is being refactored.
Good point.
Wonder how many reports they got on PNG transparency issue.

Not enough :-)  It's got better.  Now I can save the diagram to a file and use it fine.  I just can't use the clipboard.  It's not great on putting labels onto an alternative image but now I can create some very pretty pictures.

I guess sometimes its more interesting for developers to add new features than it is to fix bugs.

I'm really tired with situation of bugs remaining unresolved for long period of time.

Like not properly handling transparency of PNGs?

Thanks for the comments.

A in both projects is same application

A model is a view of a [mythical] now state.  Your project 1 is a past state and your project 2 is a future state.  If you want them to be different you need to model them differently.  A diagram is not a picture (although your project 1 issue could be consider akin to Dorian Grey).
