That is the Portals window, 'Start' being one of the nine Portals available.

From the movie where Johnny Depp summons the Devil, right?

Bugs and Issues / Re: Baseline compare utility - elements without diagrams

Oh, I understand your point, just not the idiom.  But I learnt a long time ago that German idiomatic phrases and Dutch swear words make no sense when translated into English.

FWIW: Branch and merge is nice for code. But it's not working for models. It's like saying "Oh, that truck can drive. So I can use it to get my breakfast". But what's a good idea with a bicycle is a bad idea with a truck. Unfortunately this place does not leave enough room to go into details. And one still can prove me wrong. But I'm ready to argue.

I feel this may be a culturally specific analogy, and the linkage between bicycles and breakfasts doesn't travel.

Victoria Bitter is perhaps the worst beer I've ever had.  I'm not sure if it's the cane sugar or something they're modifying the water with (pH or supercharging the yeast) but even one gives me a massive headache a couple of hours later.

(Tooheys?? In Victoria??)

Holgate Mount Macedon Pale Ale?  I actually had a hard time in Victoria finding "local" beer.

It sounds like you should be talking to your infrastructure people about what QoS settings exist in our environment.  There's a limit to what EA can do in terms of optimization, especially if it's fighting QoS.

It's Friday, I wonder if around AEST 16:00 the Sparxians will break out the Tooheys and start mashing the unhelpful link on anyone who has annoyed them during the week.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Direction indicator lost on ArchiMate Associations

Personally I think you'll have problems.  If you look at the traceability view you'll see that most of the directionality appears to be backwards.  While it's actually "Archimate correct" it would have made more sense from the tooling perspective to just reverse the shape script.  It certainly would have made working out derived relationships easier.

Anything that I want syntactically correct I draw first in Archi.

To my mind, further UMLising the Archimate implementation would be a bug in itself.

Ctrl-T also know as Diagram | Save Image to File.

The Diagram top level menu is one of the contextually more consistent  of the menus   :D

There are certainly extensions for Chrome that allow you to override a site's formatting with your own.  I suspect qwerty is using Safari tho', which is much like a modern web browser :-)

I can't say I loved that Mickeysoft help GUI. But the contrast there was simply optimal (black against white). is light blue on white in a really tiny font. Without zoom this is unreadable. Well, I'm not shedding any tears. Not even sighing any more. I need to try this Visual Paradigm.

I don't know about your fruity browser but it should give you the option to override a site's styles.  Make it what ever you like.

It looks fine to me old man :-)

The contrast ratio is 5.32:1 which is not terrible (WCAG 2.0 AA) but it could be much better (7:1 for WCAG 2.0 AAA).

Given the number of people that ask where the changelog\patch notes are, I'd say there was quite a demand for people wanting to know if their bugs are fixed.

Anna Pickard of SlackHQ gave a great talk at this year's webstock about writing about bugfixes and improvements (video not up yet) http://www.webstock.org.nz/16/programme/presentations/#pickard

Probably yes. But once you are used to the flexibility of SQL Searches, you'll never want to go back  ;D

You've never sounded more like Goldmember :-)
