- When right clicking on a workspace and selecting Complete from model…, the slider for the object column doesn’t work. If you make the dialog wider, then you can read the entire object name, however there isn’t a horizontal slider at the bottom so that you can see the full name of the Object 2 WS name. Since you can’t use the sliders to increase the name of the object column, if you make the dialog smaller you can’t see the object name at all. Grabbing the slider to the left of the object 2 column header and moving it to the right pushes the column to the right until the object 2 column header is hidden. Then it starts pushing the object 1 column to the left until the object column is hidden. Once the object header and object is hidden, it starts pushing the object 1 WS and object 2 WS columns to the right and creates a veritcal scroll bar at the bottom of the screen. With the vertical scroll bar at the bottom of the screen, I can continue to push the hidden object 2 column to the right until the object 2 WS column is complete out of the width of the dialog and it’s invisible, as in the only indication that there is even a column out there anywhere is the object 2 WS column slider. If I grab that and start sliding it to the left, it starts collapsing the object 2 and object 1 WS columns headers until I wind up with a very wide display where the only thing visible is the object 1 column. I can’t grab the slider to the left of object 1 to move it to the right so I can see the object column.
I do not know with 100% certainty how the column sliders on this dialog should work but I do know with 100% certainty that this is not how it should work. See model_complete_dialog.doc attachment.
Scrolling down through the list, the entities are displayed first in alphabetical order followed by the views. There doesn’t appear to be any order for the view names. They are just random. Then you get to an alphabetical list of relationship names. That makes it very difficult to find an object for display since my view and relationship names are based on the entity name. If you sort on the object header, does sort the entire column by the name.
The objects that are already displayed on the workspace aren’t in the list so you can’t use this dialog to remove objects from the workspace. IMHO, relationships shouldn’t be in this list. You should get those automatically when you display the entities on the workspace.
