Auto Refresh Diagrams

  • Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect provides the New Auto Refresh feature that allows you to collaborate on diagrams with your team in real-time. This results in improved support for multiple people offering feedback on the same diagram simultaneously.
  • It lets your team monitor the changes immediately after enabling the Auto-Refresh option on your diagram with a time interval.
  • One can design his own dynamic and distributed real-time modeling environment by combining Review, Chat, Discussion, and/or Journal.
  • The Feature is explicitly available in Enterprise Architect version 16.0 and later.


Figure 1: Auto Refresh Context Menu


  • Right-clicking on the diagram background –> Collaborate –> Auto Refresh
  • In Ribbon, select the Layout –> Auto Refresh –> Auto Refresh

Context Menu Options:

 Option  Action
 Disabled  For all diagrams, this is the default setting. Any user can update the diagram, but there is a risk of updating’ collisions. You’ll get a warning notice and a prompt to refresh the diagram if another user saves their changes.
 7  Set the refresh interval to 7 seconds and enable automatic refresh mode for the current diagram.
 15  Set the refresh interval to 15 seconds and enable automatic refresh mode for the current diagram.
 30  Set the refresh interval to 30 seconds and enable automatic refresh mode for the current diagram.
 60  Set the refresh interval to 60 seconds and enable automatic refresh mode for the current diagram.
 Pause & edit  Allows the current user to edit the diagram by pausing the automatic refresh of the diagram and releasing the lock on the diagram for the current user.
 Resume  Saves any outstanding changes to the diagram and reapplies the lock, which prevents any additional modifications to the diagram and resumes the diagram’s automatic refreshing.












Auto Reload Changed Diagrams

  • Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect’s New Auto Reload functionality ensures that the diagram you are working on is the most recent version.
  • One can reload any diagrams that are open while others make modifications by enabling this functionality in Enterprise Architect.
  • It allows one to rapidly communicate with other individuals at work and ensures that the graphical reports EA provides are up to date.


  • Layout –> Diagram –> Options –> Auto Reload Changed Diagrams.
