    Two options in the Preferences dialog: Options and
    Reposition Flag are not documented.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Options option, which is now actually "Graphic Screen
    Options" is hidden by default, and only seen when Graphic
    Screen diagrams are enabled. This is no longer a supported
    feature of System Architect, but can be enabled via an INI
    setting. Therefore, this will not be documented.
    
    The Reposition Flag option is used with Structure Chart
    diagrams. This causes the flag to move in sync with its call
    line. Similar behavior on  "State Transition Ward ? Mellor"
    diagrams, for Condition and Action symbols.
    
    As these diagrams are rarely used, it was decided not to
    document these Preferences Options.
