EA16 HTML Export Browser
« on: September 28, 2022, 07:53:36 pm »
Hello,

I tried the HTML export available with EA 16. As pointed out by a user, the major change involves the Browser which has been replaced with the content of the active package or element.
Many users require a browser matching EA Browser (tree view) so they can browse in the repository (limited to the exported package branch if applicable) as they would do in EA.

Whilst the navigation bar at the top is interesting, the tree style browser is a must have in my opinion. Can it be restored as it was available with previous versions ?

I see how it's different, but it doesn't bother me in particular, and I don't believe a lot of my users will complain about this.

A major advantage to the v16 export is that you can use if from a local folder, so no longer a webserver required.

I agree with Guillaume, the new HTML export isn't as good,
Happy to help

There are other issues with the new and improved HTML generator, mainly in regards to diagram images.

1. Setting a default diagram is not working
2. When you ‘navigate forward’ via links to diagrams, going backwards using the breadcrumbs, will take you to the details of the previous element. Not the diagram you came from.

There might be other issues, but these are the ones that annoys me the most.
