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 :-)
Created a trace relationship using the quicklinker with "Filter to toolbox" checked => Abstraction
Created a trace relationship using the quicklinker with "Filter to toolbox" unchecked => Dependency

That is feasible. It would imply that a trace extending dependency is added first. The quicklinker then only displays the first record with that label. When the filter is applied, only the one in the common toolbox is shown, so it comes out correctly.

If you see a >> button in the top left corner of your diagram, click that. If not, try selecting a different Workspace (ribbon|Start|Workspace).

Any ideas REALLY appreciated.

There used to be a Windows installer cleaner.  Now it isn't a download, it's web page which is much harder to find.  Windows Installer caches setup files and sometimes these get corrupted.

Honestly never heard of anyone being silly enough to have one root process - that is just plain stupid. What would they call it anyway? "Just Do It"?

If you'd said "Let's do this" you would have achieved some extremely funny political satire quite inappropriate for a civil servant :-)

It's t_object.classifierGUID which holds the link.

Well, no being can be "50% dead", so I was actually saying the same as you. Just shorter.

I once had a script to do that. The images go to t_image where you store them as blob in the column Image. ImageID is a unique key, Name is the name and Type is set to Bitmap for png/jpg images.
