Browser stereotyp icon shown as black square
« on: September 06, 2022, 06:14:14 am »
Hi Guys,

I don't understand the EA v16.0.1605 (x64) behavior. I have MDG Profile with the stereotype with an icon (RGB 192,192,129) for the background, but EA shows it as a black square - and I don't know why. Because 2hrs ago, it works perfectly.
I'm going slightly mad. What is causing that? I don't change anything (close EA and re-open EA).

Does anybody know a workaround, please, how prevent that EA behavior?
Thanks

Mick

I can't remember this behavior but would not be surprised if it would turn out being a bug introduced in V16. Could you try to open it with a previous version. Creating a MDG is often a PITA since you don't get any feedback from EA. A simple error and you just get "strange behavior" (rather tha any hint what could be the cause). I have no hope that this will change any time soon (in a later version of EA...).

Hi, qwerty,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Finally, I found the problem; I changed the Win Screen Resolution DPI to 110%.
After changing the resolution to 100%, EA shows the icons OK.

You should report that to Sparx. There are actually quite a number of issues dealing with screen resolution mentioned here.
