Error description

  • SA import BPMN2 diagram without a clear start event produces a
    diagram with scrambled layout.
    
    Workaround:
    
    Add an unambiguous start-event to the diagram, then Launch menu
    command 'Format | Auto-Arrange Left to Right' to fix up the
    diagram layout.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • From looking at the diagram prior to launching Auto-Arrange, it
    is clear that the event named "Receive LOB System Account Data"
    is intended to be the diagram's start-event. However, it was
    rendered ambiguous by an incoming Message Flow line.
    Auto-Arrange expects a true start-event to have only outgoing
    flows and zero incoming flows.
    

Problem conclusion

  • We proposed that the client submit an RFE asking for a change to
     Auto-Arrange and suggesting a means that would allow
    Auto-Arrange to treat "Receive LOB System Account Data" as a
    true start-event in spite of its incoming Message Flow line.
    

Temporary fix

  • An easy workaround is to draw one extra unambiguous Start-Event
    symbol to the left of "Receive LOB System Account Data" and then
     draw a Flow line from one to the other.
