RSA-RTE: Default size and settings wrong when creating a relationship

The default size for creating a relation ship is such that the selection part (most important part) is not visible.See attachment,

RSA-RTE: Need option to exclude 'inclusion paths' from dependency generation

We need an option to specify NOT to compute the dependencies for certain include paths.In Rose-RT a 'ComputeDeps' option was available for the include paths. In RSA-RTE this is not available.

RSA-RTE: Enable drag and drop of operations and sttributes from Project Explorer to Source editor

Make it possible to drag and drop operation / attributes / signal names from Project Explorer into source editor window. See attachment, when dropping something it shows something 'droppable' but it doesn't work.

Add Global Option in User Preferences Selecting Show compartments for Capsules and Protocols

RSA RT is missing a global option in user preferences for selecting "Show compartments" that are unique to capsules and protocols. Under UML modelling for UML diagrams there is a dialog to select what compartments to show for Classifers so that th...

implement full state machine explorer in derived capsules

Please change the implementation of the capsule state machine explorer in the Project Explorer so that it displays the entire state machine and its transitions in a derived capsule. The current implementation displays only the top level state or s...

Need capability to automatically create derived state diagrams in derived capsule

We have several patterns in our models that use derived capsules and their state machines quite extensively. Consequently, it's a common activity to navigate through a state machine in a derived capsule in order to locate a diagram containing a su...

Need more options for setting default display of stereotypes

The preferences Modeling dialog allows the user to specify the default setting for the Appearance of stereotypes only for Shapes, and that is the only place where the setting that is available. It is very desirable to provide more refinement for t...

Add a single-click method to open a ‘hovering' Properties view for an operation from inside a class operations tab

In order to look at the details of a class operation, you can navigate via the project explorer to do so. However some people will prefer looking at a class in the Properties view instead of using the project explorer. The issue is that when you d...

Animated model debugging with live target CPU

The user has designed, built, and deployed a UML RT model for a target CPU. The model is running on a live target CPU, and the the user wants to attach the RSA RTE toolset to the live model and observe it's behavior. This is a critical feature for...

RSA-RTE: Template class property view and treeview very confusing

Converting a RoseRT tempate class to RSARTE results in a very confusing treeview and property window (See screenshot).This can probably be sovled with an RTE specific tab like Elena Strabykina suggested, however the three-view remains confusing: ?...
