Hi Team,
As of now, this is not possible using Prolaborate. This looks to be a specialized task in EA; we will see if we can consider your request.

Thank you.
Okay, I found it ;-)
So, to help others with EA 13.5:
- a self-reference is best established as an Attribute of the type of class one wants to reference
- an named association can be drawn on the diagram to to Show this, but it may not materialize in an XSD created from the model (it didn't, in my case)
- to hide the Attribute from the diagram, right-click on the class, select "Features&Properties" > "Feature and Compartment Visibility" > "Attribute visibility" > Custom, then select the attributes to hide.
Thanks for everyone's help.
Ripertkiwi, many thanks!  I will surely try (after I learn how to run Excel VBA on a Sparx diagram - I'll get to it! Probably during Xmas holidays)

You can hide the attribute from a diagram, but not from the model.

Hi Geert, RoyC
I didn't find the 'Ignore Element and Property Visibility' Option, I am afraid, but using the Attribute Approach did the trick, and the Schema now Show this self-reference. Now I have an Attribute *and* and association. Before I remove the association from the diagram (I like the visual of it, because it Shows immediately the fact that the FeatureType can reference itself), is there a way to *hide* the Attribute from the model?

BTW: This is modeled after the ISO19156 OM_Observation FeatureType (+relatedObservation), if that helps to understand what we are trying to do.

I found a post where it's recommended to run a compact. When trying to do so I get "Operation not supported in transactions". So, what's that now?

Anyone came across this during exporting a diagram to a file?

Yes, I ran PI check. It gives me two "invalid link geometry" messages: Missing Connector and Diagram. Those will not go away even after multiple PI checks. Notably this diagram has a connector to a connector (though I think it once exported without issues). Most likely it's just one of those bugs that never will get fixed. But if someone has an idea...

Unfortunately there is nothing attached (which is impossible on this forum anyway). To post a screen shot you need to place it on a public server and use the link.

Hi Roy - Hmm. Good guidance. I'll learn how to do things that way. Seems to work. Thanks
General Board / Set page color

Hi. I want to create a cover page similar to the attached one.

In order to to this, I need to fill the entire page with a background color. I've set page margins to 0, but I cannot fill exactly the page. I've created a table with a single cell but I cannot fill the entire page with the table cell. If I try to enlarge the cell to the entire page, when the bottom border almost reaches the bottom part of the page, a new page appears.

What's the most intelligent way to set a background color for the page?
