Here I am.
Some new notes on the TDM3 model that I migrated from TDM2:
The property dialog should remember the previously used tab as it does in TDM2.
Thanks. We will fix it. CR # 37 879.
When using the drop down list at the top of the Entity properties, all of the entities are available for selection. In my opinion, only the entities that are on the WS should be available for selection.
Thanks for this interesting idea.
Generally, the object navigator box (and not only for entities) refers to model, not particular WS.
We need to take into consideration the following things:
a] You can open the Entity Properties dialog not only from WS but also Model Explorer or Model menu | Entities dialog. Which entities should be available in the drop down list in these cases?
b] You can have several shortcuts of the same entity in one WS.
c] You have Entity1 in WS1 and also WS2. You open its properties dialog from WS1, leave it open. If you double-click Entity1 in WS2, the same properties dialog will activate. - It is the same object. - This is how TDM3 behaves by default.
We didn’t want to filll the work area with dialogs/forms that are identical.
(Please see Settings | Options | General | Allow One Instance of Form option that is selected by default.)
Thanks in advance for your ideas on this issue.
It’s a bug. We will fix it. CR # 37 880.
If I add a new entity to a WS, a shortcut is created on all WS in the model. Is that the intended behaviour?
Thanks for your bug notification. Please see the details below.
a] General information:
- A shortcut is created in the workspaces where the Auto Complete option is on. Please see the WS format.
- For new models, it is set in the Settings menu | Options | Physical Model | Auto Complete Workspaces.
b] Intended behaviour in general:
WS1 in TDM3 is meant as Main model. Therefore the Auto Complete (AC) option for WS1 is always selected, no matter what you have set in the Settings menu | Options (- the settings defined here will be applied for all other Workspaces).
AC is off. -> If you add an entity to WS2, a shortcut of this entity will automatically create in WS1(Main model).
AC is on. -> If you add an entity to WS2, a shortcut of this entity will automatically create in all workspaces, not only WS1(Main model).
c] Intended behaviour for models imported from TDM2:
In TDM2, if you add an entity to any submodel, it will be created in the Main model automatically. However, if you add an entity to Main model, it will not be created in submodel. Auto Complete option for submodels in TDM2 is not available.
In TDM3, it should work the same way for the models imported from TDM2. - After the import, the model should have the Auto Complete on in WS 1 (Main model) and off in all other workspaces.
- And here is the bug. The imported model takes the settings from the Settings menu | Options | Physical Model | Auto Complete Workspaces, which is wrong.
We will fix it. CR # 37 883.
I suppose your situation is that you have the Auto Complete Workspaces option selected.
- Turn this option off in WS Format for each WS (except WS1-Main model) in your imported model.
- Before you import the .dmx file, disable the Auto Complete Workspaces option in the Settings | Options. Then select the AC option for WS1-Main model.
Well, I hope I’ve managed to explain it so as it’s understandable (however, not definitely sure…) In any case, if you have ANY questions, please write me back. Thanks.
