  • Re: ORM Stencil v13+ auto-rotate of text

    Hi Roger, Thanks, great suggestions both. They are now implemented. (I was pleased but&nbsp;embarrassed&nbsp;by the ease of&nbsp;the second one...:-) Also, I&#39;ve disabled rotation altogether on non-nested object types. Anything else you can think of that should go into v16? Regards, Andy

  • Re: ORM Stencil v13+ auto-rotate of text

    And Roger, This last suggestion also raises some other interesting questions: If we&#39;re going to force the 90-degree increments on the fact types, wouldn&#39;t this include the objectified fact types? And if it&#39;s useful to force these 90-degree jumps on those, wouldn&#39;t it be useful to force them on all object-type ...

    Roger, You&#39;ve helped immensely with your suggestions. I must say, I&#39;d never thought of&nbsp;such fixes before; and also, even then I never&nbsp;foresaw how nicely&nbsp;the fixes, as I chose to implement them,&nbsp;would make the shape behave. So these are all gifts from heaven and from you. And I must say your final suggestion is growing ...

    Hi Roger, 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&nbsp;let me know&nbsp;to what&nbsp;extent&nbsp;this solves your problem. Regards, Andy

  • Re: ORM Stencil v13+ auto-rotate of text

    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 ...

  • Re: ORM Stencil v13+ auto-rotate of text

    Hi Roger, &nbsp;You have very helpfully made clear to me that there is&nbsp;less than I had&nbsp;imagined that&nbsp;one can really&nbsp;assume about people&#39;s preferences on this. Thank you. So I think you&#39;re right, a more flexible solution is in order. I think I should&nbsp;allow people to adjust the text-angle manually (through the ...

  • Re: ORM Stencil v13+ auto-rotate of text

    Hi Roger, &nbsp;Thanks for the comments, I always appreciate your thoughtful and pertinent feedback. Indeed, it is so thoughtful that I&#39;m afraid I&#39;m going to have to give it more time than I have available immediately, in order to&nbsp;appreciate fully what you&#39;re getting at,&nbsp;simply because it&#39;s 1:21 AM where I am... So, with ...

  • Re: Modeling based an existence chain

    Hi Ken, &nbsp;Thanks for this eludication. Yes, I agree, we seem to have a fundamental difference with regard to what an &quot;accurate model&quot; is. I believe in something that philosophers sometimes call &quot;objectivity&quot;, meaning a grasp of a reality that yes, is really &quot;out there&quot;. If we could get David Hume and Immanuel ...

  • Re: Modeling based an existence chain

    Hi Marc, I hate to tell you, but you&#39;re our domain expert, by default :-) As such, I&#39;ve got to tell you, I don&#39;t understand how someone could&nbsp;be all three: working for a Federal Agency (recorded), working for a Public Organization (recorded), and at the very same time, having their employment &quot;not listed&quot;. &nbsp; I was ...
