Pinned topic Where did convert to ER or class diagram go?

‏2012-04-12T15:02:15Z |
Hi Everyone,

I wanted to convert an ER diagram to a class diagram and it no longer appears on the Dictionary menu. I also checked going the other way - converting a class diagram to an ER diagram. I am using version 11.4.1. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Check to see if the UML property set is turned on: Tools | Customize Method Support > Encyclopedia Configuration

      Thanks for the suggestion - I have checked and definitely have the UML option set in the encyclopedia configuration.

      This is very annoying. Many other tools support moving between UML and ER models seemlessly. Why would this feature be removed?

        I just opened the Samples encyclopedia and verified that "convert to class diagram" is the fourth menu choice.

        Be sure that your menu is expanding all the way.

        You should also be able to choose "convert to ER Diagram" when you have a Class diagram open.

        P.S. my previous comment was done in 11.4.1.1

          Hi,

          Thanks for the responses and I am sure you are right, but I don't have the menu option any more. I have checked all menus, but you are talking about the Tools menu right? It used to be there, but has gone. UML is definitely ticked in the configuration window. I make sure the menus are fully expanded. I checked the Samples encyclopedia and it's the same - no "Convert to UML" on the menus when an ER diagram is opened.

          Thanks for the responses. I am sure you are right, but there is something about my installation that is not showing those menu options. I have checked that the menu is fully expanded and checked that UML is ticked in the configuration. I have checked all the menus. It was on the Tools menu right? I am using version 11.4.1.

          I have the SOA add-on installed - but that shouldn't affect it. I will keep playing with it, but any further suggestions are most welcome.

            It is under Dictionary - when you have an ER diagram open - see attachment with screen shot.

              Hi Guys,

              This problem has gone away! I downloaded the fix for version 11.4.1.2 and now the menu options are back. So thanks for your help. Sorry I had not seen the new fix pack. IBM must have fixed a bug that was causing this.
