Error description

  • Environment:
    
    Rhapsody 8.1.5 and 8.2
    
    
    Description:
    
    Using Rhapsody 8.1.l5, 8.2, as well as earlier versions.  On an
    IBD, we
    have Flows that are used to convey the flow of information.  In
    order
    to be able to generate documentation showing the flows, and
    their from
    to ends, we rely on the End 1 as being from, and end 2 as being
    to.
    The Flip Flow Direction feature seems helpful, until we see that
    the
    flow direction is changed without any notification or indication
    that
    it has changed.
    
    Heidi put together the attached document describing the problem.
    There
    are also two zipped models attached that show the problem.
    Heidi can
    speak to these models.
