Hi, if I understand you correctly you want to over-ride the ArchiMate relationship rules in special circumstances. These constraints are fixed in Archi, they can't be changed in accordance with user-driven constraints.

If there is two data objects that one of them aggregate the other.
For these data objects there is others who have specialization relationships with them.
I want to add some exceptions to the relationships between these "specialized data objects" that prevent certain specialized data objects from aggregating the other specialized data objects.

Hi JB,

Re your question: I can Ungroup the shapes in Visio, select the rectangle of the element and change the line-type as needed.

@Phil Beauvoir: option would be great. Even better would be the option to set the line-style from Archi ;-)

KR,

Thanks Phil, understood.

Sure, I'll keep using the way $(selection).prop("name", "value"); to make the bulk change, that works actually.

Have a nice day,
Xiaoqi

Hi,

the properties drop downs (and the Properties Manager) only contain property names and values that are actually in use in that model. So a property name or value is only available if it has been used already. So you may have to do bulk editing with a jArchi script.

General Archi Discussion / How to maintain the dropdown l...
Last post by xiaoqi - May 19, 2022, 15:58:49 PM
Hello,

Tried to search in our forum, don't find direct answer, so post here as a new question.

I'm now using plenty of Properties for elements in the model, as shown in the first picture, it's good to have the list in the Properties Manager. However, I see I can only do the "renaming" of the Property name in the table.

In the real life, time to time I need to add new choices into the certain Property, which will be the choices as DropDown list. My question is, anywhere our tool can allow me to maintain this kind of dropdown list centrally, instead of adding on the ad-hoc mode?

And, furthermore, the maintenance of the dropdown list will also useful for doing the "housekeeping" and correction easily, e.g. in one Property called "Operating System", we intend to have OS, through a period of working, different team members added choice content, hence I see we have "Windows 2019" and "Windows Server 2019" for example, if we can do fix from some "Property Maintenance Screen" that would be really nice.

Or maybe there's already the existing feature that I haven't aware, thanks a lot.

Regards, Xiaoqi

There was also an issue with some fonts not rendering properly, that's why we changed it. I guess we could provide this as an option.

The issue with this is that it then becomes mandatory to export the whole font and embed it into the SVG, making them huge.

Quote from: johmut on May 18, 2022, 11:45:54 AMPerhaps also good to know why I need to copy/paste into Visio? Our company uses line-style to visually differentiate objects elements based on validation status (dotted, dashed and solid). This is something I cannot achieve in Archi ...

One related question: aside the rendering issue, I suppose that importing a SVG in Visio doesn't create real visio shapes, so how do you intend to work on the diagram then ?

Regards,

JB
