  • Re: Is there a version of NORMA that runs on Mac?

    NORMA is a Visual Studio extension. Visual Studio runs on Windows, so you'll need a Windows virtual machine to run it on the Mac. You can view the diagrams from a local .orm file on a Mac browser using http://ormsolutions.com/tools/orm.aspx (one diagram at a time) or http://ormsolutions.com/tools/ormPrint.aspx (all ...

  • Re: Installation of NORMA with Visual Studio 2013 Express

    Hi William, NORMA is a Visual Studio extension package, and none of the Visual Studio Express editions allow extension packages to load in Visual Studio. The free Visual Studio edition you're looking for that will install NORMA is the Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition. -Matt

  • Re: Model semi derived fact type in NORMA

    Hi Jacob, Once you enter your derivation note you'll see a 'DerivationStorage' property. This defaults to 'Derived', but can also be set to 'Asserted or Derived'. If you mix in the storage properties you get *, **, +, or ++, with two characters indicating stored, meaning that the derived portion should also be ...
  • Re: Displaying (syntactic) data type in verbalization of model

    Hi Karl, I have some minor changes to make before changing the dll version and officially releasing. In the mean time, http://ormsolutions.com/NORMAPreview is kept up to date with builds from the latest sources and will be very close to the next official build. -Matt 
  • Re: Subset constraint terminology

    Hi Matt, I think the adjective 'simple' always needs to be taken in the context of the thing it is describing. In math terms, a 'simple multiplication problem' and a 'simple multi-variable definite integration problem' set significantly different bars for the meaning of simple. I think you can take Terry's use of ...

  • Re: Subset constraint terminology

    Hi Matt, I don't think it is understood that an unprefixed 'subset constraint' means one role per tuple. I've used the terms 'single-column', 'basic', 'simple', etc. Although the NORMA UI presents rows and columns, technically each row (tuple) is an argument to the comparison operation, the argument length ...

  • Re: Importing older models

    Hi Rick, The .imo files have an undocumented binary file format. I do not have documentation on the file format, the import code from VEA, or information on how to write a VisualModeler add-in, so there is very little I can do to remedy this situation. The Orthogonal Toolbox add-in is also posted ...
  • Re: Displaying (syntactic) data type in verbalization of model

    Hi Karl, I'll just add it in, it shouldn't be hard. If it is OK, I'll just show the numbers instead of text with them. There are currently two fields (length and scale) that are basically placeholders and appear with different names in the properties window (length becomes precision for Money and Decimal types). Translating ...
  • Re: Fact Type Names

    Hi Jack, Thanks for the explanation. What should work here is modification of the name generator settings in the ORM Model Browser (Name Generation Defaults/Relational Names). While most of the settings here make a difference, it doesn't look like the name-shortening settings are even looked at by the name generators ...

  • Re: Fact Type Names

    Hi Jack, Fact type names are generated based on the default reading for the fact type. The reading editor tool window lets you prioritize reading orders and readings, which can change the default reading. If you see an editable fact type name it is because the fact type is explicitly or implicitly objectified. Fact types are implicitly ...
