This is terrific! Thank you for making such a great shape.
The only thing I would add is the following:
EventXFMod = SETF(GetRef(Angle),90 deg*(ROUND(Angle/90 deg,0)))
This formula will force the shape to snap to 90 degree increments when using the free rotation handle.
I also saw the context menu flags for the flip status. Were ...
Another super suggestion. Please give the attached a try, and let me know whether this needs further improvement. Many thanks,
Wow! Very nice. I really like the way the text moves to the right or left when rotating.
Here are some observations...
I'd like to see the text move up or down to clear the fact type when in the horizontal orientation. If I embed line breaks in the text, then in the horizontal position it still overlaps the fact type.
Thanks. The suggestion about better auto-text-repositioning is super. I invite you to give my first attempt a test-drive. Please see the attached, and do let me know to what extent this solves your problem.
Thanks for your reply!
For my thesis I'm working on a proof of concept of an algorithm to translate ORM schemas into UML. Because I want the UML schemas to be close to the relational model, and I do not have much time left, I want the binaries with a spanning uniqueness constraint in co-referenced form.
If I rewrite an ORM schema in ...
I did know about the line breaks, though I admit I use them sparingly today because the text rotates with the fact type in versions before 13.
To be fair, I just played around with a fact type rotated to vertical orientation. I created a fact type with the text "is related to" just as an example. In the default horizontal ...
The spanning uniqueness constraint on the binary creates an implied objectification, which has a coreferenced form as you present. The entity type for an implied objectification is always marked as independent, and you will need to do the same for your expanded form if you want to create a separate table for it in the database.
Hi Roger, P.S., I wanted to ask whether you are aware of the following features, with which your comments suggested, you might be unfamiliar:
1) You can enter line-feeds into the shape-text, in Visio, to spread the text over more than one line. This can significantly reduce the space-hungriness of horizontal text on a vertical fact type...
2) On ...
I have a question regarding schema equivalence.
In the attached image, I have put two versions of a simple schema.
An actor (with an id and name) can play in more than one play.
A play (with a code and title) can involve multiple actors.
When I write the fact type with a spanning uniqueness constraint in co-referenced form, I get ...
You have very helpfully made clear to me that there is less than I had imagined that one can really assume about people's preferences on this. Thank you. So I think you're right, a more flexible solution is in order.
I think I should allow people to adjust the text-angle manually (through the ...
