PM86075: Display mode options on the symbols in the diagrams change after encyclopedia is upgraded from SA v18.104.22.168 to SA v22.214.171.124
A fix is available
Closed as program error.
Display mode options on the symbols in the diagrams change after encyclopedia is upgraded from SA v126.96.36.199 to SA v188.8.131.52 The problem only happens when clicking Yes to reapply default declarations, as a workaround the users can say No on this prompt. The display mode options will not be changed.
In newer versions of SA, the "default declaration" includes enabling SA-Focal Point integration. This, in turn, adds a new "Vendor" check-box to the list of displayable properties seen on the "Display Mode" dialog. The extra check-box confuses the logic of which check-boxes to enable when presenting the dialog.
An easy workaround exists. In the mean time, we will investigate a better long-term solution.
Workaround: When an on old encyclopedia is being opened by a new version of SA, follow these steps: 1. Say YES to "The encyclopedia schema is configured..." 2. Say YES to "The default meta model is configured..." 3. Say YES to "Would you like to reapply the default..." [STOP HERE] The current dialog being displayed should be "System Architect Property Configuration" 4. Click on the "Advanced" button. 5. Select "Focal Point" in the lower right "Property Sets" pane. 6. Click on "Remove" 7. Click on other "OK" buttons and allow the upgraded encyclopedia to open with correct Display Mode check-boxes.
