Last post by bramasdf - March 25, 2024, 14:16:30 PM
Hello,

Im a new archi user and had a couple questions.
I am doing an internship where i have to map out all the used application etc.
I already made a large board consiting of the different bussines lines.
And for my later stages i would want to create a view for every different bussines line that shows which application that they use. Is there a way to automate this? like i click an my bussines actor and then create a view that shows all conections made by this certain actor?

Kind regards

Hi,

Quote from: Gemini on March 24, 2024, 22:32:58 PMIs there a way to automatically position Archimate elements and their relationship connectors

No. One could try to do this with some jArchi scripts (and Herve did some years ago), but very often (read: always), this is more complicated to automate than expected.

No, connections can only be straight (but you can add bendpoints to split a connection into multiple segments).

Hi,

Yes, that's on purpose: you have to resize them before. Usually 20px is a good start for a top right icon.

Only exception: if you set image position to "Fill", then the image will be scaled (up or down) to cover the whole figure.

If you don't want any background, use an image format which supports transparency (such as PNG) et set background to transparent.

Hello,

Is there a way to automatically position Archimate elements and their relationship connectors so that they can be arranged in a visually appealing manner, i.e. connectors not crossing each other, and drawn with archs like in the graphviz tool and distributed to the screen so that all visual elements are visible in a readable way?

Thanks

Hello,

I have tried to change the element icons by using Image->Custom property.

However, they are displayed with their original size and background and they don't fit into the element original size on the screen.

Is there any method and tool to implement such an icon for each Archimate element?

Thanks
