    WORKAROUND:
    ----------
    A test fix with the modified satbf.tbf file as below is
    available. Contact Rational Client Support to receive this file
    or follow the below steps:
    
    1. Stop System Architect.
    
    2. Locate the System Architect start-up path, typically
    'C:\Program Files\IBM\Rational\System Architect Suite\System
    Architect'
    
    3. Use a text editor to open 'satbf.tbf'
    
    4. Fix eight entries 'Visible' from 'true' to 'false'. Here is
    one example with the erroneous entry:
    ?SATool Alignment='4'
    Caption='?Adorn with Stereotype'
    Category='General'
    Checked='false'
    Description=''
    Enabled='true'
    HelpContextID='0'
    IsAccessControlled='true'
    Name='SAIDM_348'
    ShortcutKey=''
    Style='1'
    SubBand=''
    Text=''
    ToolID='348'
    ToolTipText='Adorn with Stereotype'
    Visible='true'
    /?
    
    5. The 8 can be found by searching for these 'Name' entries'
    Name='SAIDM_348'
    Name='SAIDM_349'
    Name='SAIDM_508'
    Name='SAIDM_509'
    Name='SAIDM_510'
    Name='SAIDM_511'
    Name='SAIDM_512'
    Name='SAIDM_513'
    
    6. Find and delete the file named 'sausrtbf.tbf'
    For example, if the OS is Win-XP, delete:
    C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Local Settings\Application
    Data\Telelogic\System Architect\sausrtbf.tbf
    
    7. Restart System Architect.

    ****************************************************************
    The view menu has a set of hidden entries that are activated
    whenever the user selects certain symbols on certain
    diagrams. Whenever a new encyclopedia is opened, these menu
    entries should be reset back to hidden, but that is not
    happening correctly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Several entries in the shipping version of our Toolbar file
    (SAtbf.tbf) were mistakenly set to "always visible". They
    were now fixed.
