General Archi Discussion / Re: Archi 4.9.1 Released
Last post by xiaoqi - October 26, 2021, 23:52:52 PM
Hi Phil,

Thanks for your hardworking to offer this maintenance release so quick, I have just upgraded to this version and it works with coArchi 0.8.0 till now quite smoothly.

Just one tiny comment, see attached two pictures, when double-clicking the exe file (in Windows), the Symentec (SEP) pop the warning message. Trust our source so I select "Excluding" action, then it is able to be installed.

However, I haven't gotten this kind of warning in earlier version till 4.9.0, is there any setting from your packaging step missed? Or, not sure, the latest SEP definition treats 4.9.1 package is "too new".

Would like to have your notice on this, our team is on the half way of upgrading to 4.9.0, now if they go to our site they will get 4.9.1, so better to ensure no harmful error for people then.

Nice day, thanks,
Xiaoqi

Because the "menu" is a diagram View and DnD works within the View not outside of it. There are plans to create a special View/Palette thing that would allow DnD of Specialised objects.

Hi,

Quote from: UlfW on October 20, 2021, 18:45:04 PMAny possibility to post a link to the template for C4 ?
Now that we have 4.9 out this should be even simpler to achieve ?

Thanks in advance !

That's planned for the near future. I was waiting for 4.9.1 to be out.

Regards,

JB

Hi,

Thank you for sharing.

I was planning to provide a similar model template for C4 (easier to use than having to import using coArchi), but you did it first ;-)

I've had a look at your model and have two remarks:
  • Original C4 figures are hard to use in Archi because being custom images in full covering mode, users will have to make sure the concepts are of the right aspect ratio, or else parts will be missing. From a UX point of view this is far from perfect. So, as Simon Brown himself writes that C4 model doesn't prescribe any particular notation, I would suggest (and was planning) to use small custom icons on the top right corner.
  • You can't use flow as this is not the right semantic. The semantic implied in all C4 diagrams I've seen so far is a "call" semantic (arrow goes from caller to callee). Trigger should be used.

Regards,

JB

General Archi Discussion / C4 Concepts for Archi
Last post by cybye - October 26, 2021, 20:41:57 PM
Actually I'm not really sure if it makes sense, yet.

I found dev-teams are loving their boxes and arrows (and such database symbols), and they are loving to leave them behind right in the moment they placed them. Anything more complex magically increases resistance in a parabolic way. So, I'm ok with C4 incl. such known database symbols, and (with the selfish hope) the mission of C4 to have it layered (will silently creep into their minds and my model), and not all into one throw-away diagram.

JBs mapping and the specialization feature now resulted in https://github.com/cybye/C4Concepts4Archi

C4 is currently easy to explain, importing it into Archi and using it as a menu a little harder, why you cannot drag and drop from the left into your diagram - sigh, "model, different, separation ... " it's accepted, it's accepted.

Guys, thanks for the custom icons!

Chris

Setting multiple properties is not supported at the moment. We may implement it in the future.

General Archi Discussion / Add property for multiselect
Last post by margolyesh - October 26, 2021, 18:07:23 PM
Hi!
If I select several items (for example, devices), open the properties window and add a new one, it is added only to one device, although it is written that multiselect is made.
Is this a bug or not?
In the same situation, the specialization and labels change for all selected items.
