Enterprise Architect 11 Diagram Theme
Enterprise Architect 11 has a new default look and feel for diagrams, which allows you to easily identify element types on any diagram.
This improved design provides high impact visuals for diagrams and reports, helping to enhance communication with stakeholders.
Create rich and visually appealing diagrams with Enterprise Architect's support for background tiles
on diagrams. Select from one of the included gradients or create your own unique designs!
Package Driven Modeling
When placing a package onto a diagram, Enterprise Architect gives you a set of display options on how this
package is to be treated. You can choose from the traditional functionality of 'Package element', or the
three new options which include 'Document artifact linked to package', 'Graph based on package
contents', and 'Matrix profile'.
Document Artifact linked to a package
When you link a document artifact to a package, Enterprise Architect will save the resulting generated
document to a Linked Document on the package. Now whenever you generate your reports, they will be
automatically stored in the model - available to the team. All settings for the generation from element
filters to the type of style sheet used will also be saved, ensuring consistent, good looking reports each
and every time from Enterprise Architect.
Graph based on package contents
The graph based on package contents option creates a graph element on the diagram. Chart elements are useful
for creating dashboards of your enterprise based on the specific contents of the package. Enterprise
Architect gives you the option of configuring the packages further with filters, chart types, and different
datatypes (Package, Customer SQL and CSV).
Matrix profiles allow you to recall a view of element relationships in your model. Profiles are stored with
the artifact and are accessible by the context menu or double clicking the diagram element.
Enterprise Architect 11 now supports the Kanban project management methodology. You can divide your diagram into a series of vertical swimlanes, where each lane represents the status of the elements. This methodology allows you to work on model elements that are automatically organized based on the value of a project management property such as Phase, Version and Status. Drag elements from one lane to another to automatically change the value of a given status. This approach is ideal for people that prefer to work with a visual model, rather than changing statuses and tagged values on each individual element.
Support for Transparent Images
Dress up your diagrams with support for transparent high resolution images. Support for transparent images
enable you to produce high quality diagrams, reports and presentations. Easily add transparent images using
drag and drop or adding them via the alternate images window.
Improved Element Shadows
Enterprise Architect has significantly improved the appearance of shadows, which is particularly evident
when elements overlap or interact with connectors. Produce high quality diagrams with greater
Repository Based File storage
Sharing your documents, files, videos, and sound bites with your team has never been easier with
Enterprise Architect's repository based file storage. Never lose a linked report or important project
file again. Store all of your reports inline with the rest of the model. Share and edit documents and files
over WAN links - keep everyone on the same page, regardless of where they are located in the world. Storing a
file in the repository is as easy as dragging it from the desktop and placing it onto a diagram. To open the
file, simply double click the appropriate icon.
