Pinned topic Can SA render Polygons?

‏2012-11-07T15:53:44Z |
Is SA able to render polygon shapes, or is that something yet to be determined?

    What diagram type are u using? You will likely have to create a custom object symbol if it is not existing in any current diagram type.

      I would like to be able to draw a dashed shape around an enclave of systems to indicate accreditation boundaries. Dashed rectangles are good for many, however in some cases dashed polygons are preferred to save on workspace realestate.

        Not sure how OOTB - but you could create a usrprops custom object/symbol or submit an RFE here for a future feature support:

        Maybe someone else knows a better way!

          Thank you Sammy - I should have been using this long ago every time I came across a new need from the tool. I submitted two RFEs: one addressing the polygon issue, and another addressing the need to include other graphic formats for symbols (e.g., .jpg, .gif., .png, etc).

            Great - please read over the page to see how to vote for RFEs and get others to vote as well to get better visibility to the prod dev folks at IBM.
