General Board / How to enable the "Find Command..." widget
« Last post by Paolo F Cantoni on October 15, 2018, 02:40:41 pm »
On one of our machines, we've lost the "Find Command..." widget at the top right of the Ribbon.  How can we get it back, please?

Everytime I want to change some properties in some class I get the following error messages:

:Microsoft Cursor Engine [-2147217864] Row cannot be located for updating. Some values may have been changed since it was last read.

ADODB.Recordset[-2146825069] Operation is not allowed in this context.

How can I solve them??

I give up, how do I, in V14, hide a folder from being included in generated documentation?

It seems to me the old context sensivitve menu item should have ended up here?!

Being able to configure the Element Label in the Project Browser would be very useful for all sorts of reasons.

Gets my vote.

Make sure there's no confusion between formal nesting and meronymy.  Search for "visual embedding nesting" to see some clarifications on what may be needed.  Particularly, see Re: Advice - to nest or to compose? reply #7.

SavePackageAsUMLProfile, SaveDiagramAsUMLProfile and GenerateMDGTechnology were added to the Repository class in EA 14 to help with building Profiles and Technologies via script.
But hey that might be old-fashioned thinking.
The new approach seems to be make 'em do it our way. Let's see how that plays out.
Dare I say we might be moving into "Post Consistency?"    ;)

I've started using the Metafile clipboard format, as UML copy/pasted into a Word document looks clearer than with the Bitmap format.

There is an issue when copy/pasting a Common "Boundary" element with properties Shape="Rounded Rectangle" and Style="Solid".  With these settings (and the Metafile clipboard format) the pasted image has a rounded foreground outline, but a non-rounded background fill image.

This is on 14.1.1427.  It would be nice to get this fixed.

Elements in a different package aye? Shouldn't that be an aggregation relationship you want not composition?

My intent was to make people aware of the general restriction of this feature (ie that it only applies to elements within the same package)

However, specifically for the case of Archimate and Composition, it's going to depend on how you choose to structure your packages.  For example, if you choose to package your elements by type / stereotype then there are multiple valid scenarios in Archimate for a Composition relationship between different types and therefore across different packages, e.g. Business Process and Business Function.

So aye, elements in different packages with Composition as well as Aggregation :-)
