RepoDoc is a powerful document generator for Enterprise Architect able to produce a variety of document formats using plain text templates written in any text editor. It follows the same principles as the default document generator included in Enterprise Architect by taking: Starting point in the repository determining the part of your model you wish to document i.e. a root package. Document template that tells RepoDoc what to take out from the repository and where to put it into a document.   RepoDoc works with Liquid templates and allows you to generate your own customized HTML, LaTeX, Markdown or AsciiDoc…
Abstract You have a diagram, and you want to show or hide: Port, Activity Parameter, Action Pin Label of Port, Activity Parameter or Action Pin Type of Port Select the nodes where you want to show or hide, click on the appropriate hoTools Button and hoTools will do the rest.   Description Ports are powerful means to define a structure with specified points of interactions (Ports).

It also works for: UML Port SysML Block, Part, Port Activity Parameter (no type hide/show supported) Action Pin (no type hide/show supported) Select: Nothing…
We have often to do with EA models we’ve never seen before. In such cases, you have either to click through the project tree (can be confusing and time-robbing) or you use some pre-defined Model Views. The picture bellow shows how it could look like on your machine when you’ve read the article to the end. The feature could be very helpful also in other situations and we wonder why it’s used so rarely. Using Model Views you can create access points to any elements you want independently from its position in the project browser. It can be compared with…

Generic element Auto counter

Written by
Motivation An Enterprise Architect project contains hundreds or thousands of elements. Name of these elements alone are often not enough to uniquely identify them. It is important to mark every element with its own unique code. Enterprise Architect provides the Auto Naming and Auto Counters feature which efficiently generates code elements. The element number is determined by its type, each element type has its own sequence of numbers.   Unfortunately, the numbering according to the types of elements is not always sufficient. We often need sequences derived from first level components. For example, we have other sequence for 'Accounting' component…
Introduction   I've been an EA add-in developer folk since version 9 now and every time Sparx announces to release a new version of EA, I look at it with a smile in one eye and a tear in the other. New features on the one hand allow us developers to deliver add-ins with greater user experience, but on the other hand, it also forces us to keep on track with changes in the API and adapting our yet working solutions to them.   However, the EA release notes coming with every new build give only a subset of API changes…

Excel Requirement bridge

Written by
Enterprise Architect provides many features for requirements management. It allows team to create and update requirements, trace their solution, maintain whole requirement life cycle. We need sometimes work with requirements “outside” the Enterprise Architect. Especially when we discuss them with customers. We can of course generate documents from RTF templates as basis for meeting, which is suitable for most cases. At the level of project management, when it comes to project scope and overall state of requirements, is better to have requirement list in form of an Excel spreadsheet. Project manager can clear report requirement status to the customer and…
