Error description

  • Configuration:
    ------------
    Environment = Microsoft Windows (R)
    Tool = IBM Rational System Architect (R)
    Versions = 11.4.2 (build 690)
    
    Description:
    -----------
    The Information Center needs to be updated with the following
    information:
    
    1) The change in default behavior for new symbols with
    DEPICTIONS. Default for these symbols is a rectangle, and symbol
    depictions button cycles between no depiction, depiction,
    adornment
    2) The new Depiction Style button and it's use.
    
    
    Workaround:
    ----------
    The default can be changed:
    1) On the diagram select a symbol for, example TestSymbol.
    2) Right click and go to Symbol Format \ Symbol Style.
    3) Hit the Depiction Style button.
    4) Select Depiction.
    5) Check the Depiction Style checkbox under 'Set'. Hit OK.
    Now anytime you drop a TestSymbol symbol it will be as the
    DEPICTIONS, and not the rectangle. When you exit SA, be sure to
    say yes to the prompt to save changes to the AUTOEXEC.STY file,
    and to overwrite the file. So when you start SA again, and you
    drop the TestSymbol symbols they will be dropped as the
    DEPICTIONS symbol.
