Default orientation for activity partition
« on: May 05, 2022, 02:03:25 pm »
Hello,

The default orientation for activity partition is the horizontal orientation. Is there a way to change that default to be vertical orientation?

Thank you

There a good chance the project template package might work for this.

I just did a quick test, and it works. If you create a vertical activitypartition in the project template package, the default orientation changes to vertical.

https://sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/15.2/modeling/using_element_templates.html

Toward the bottom explains HOW to manage the project templates: ... You can create the Templates Package anywhere in your model; however, it is better to create it in a location that is not likely to be accidentally changed or lost in any project development work.

Set up the Element Templates Package

Thanks as Always Geert!
