Maintaining Graphical layout of Elements in Model [message #1782730] Wed, 28 February 2018 14:49 Go to next message

Step1: I have created a Sirius Modeling Project (say MP1) and created a Model.
Step2: Now, I have created another Sirius Modeling Project (say MP2) and created another Model in it.
Step3: I added Model from MP1 as a Project Dependencies in MP2 and dragged dropped the model into the representation of model of MP2.

Problem: The graphical layout of the model from MP1 is not maintained when importing in model of MP2.

How can this be achieved?

I tried to "pin" the elements and save and then importing the model to another project, but it does not help.

Anyone faced this before?

(See attached images. Pic 1 shows the graphical layout of the model in MP1, and pic 2 shows the graphical layout of the same model when imported to MP2.)

This is the expected behavior. Every diagram (or table, or tree) created on a given semantic model is a different view of that model. If two diagrams of the same type (same definition in the .odesign file) exist on the exact same model, they will have the same structure (e.g. same number of nodes, containers and relationships between them), at least by default, but their layout information (size and position of elements, which one are pinned or not, etc.) are independent.

You can try to use the Copy/Paste layout feature (see, but I'm not sure it will work in your case as it was designed with diagrams from the same project (session) in mind, and in your case the MP1 and MP2 are different projects (even if each loads the same physical file on disk, they are independant entities).
