Hi all,

I am quite new in the Papyrus area. I have installed it on my Kepler and now have one issue I am struggling with. I do not get my palette visible. Only a message "A palette is not available." appears when I activate the view.

Thanks for your appreciated support.

Cheers, Alexander

Hi Alexander,

Each diagram editor in Papyrus provides its own Palette. The "detached" palette mode (i.e. opening the palette as an Eclipse view) was only partially supported in Kepler. The embedded Palette, however, should work properly.

Which mode are you using?

Regards,
Camille

Hi Camille,

thanks a lot for your quick answer.

To be honest, I do not know which mode I am using. How can I see and change this mode?

I am also not clear about how to use an appropriate diagram editor. My window where normally the editor should present something is just empty - no matter which kind of diagram I try to open.

Thanks and kind regards, Alexander

Alexander,

I am also quite new in Papyrus but may be I could help.

Whatever the diagram you open, there should appear a palette. I do not know about the "mode" although. May be you should reinstall or check the preferences.
I think you tried this things, but is the only way I can think about, now!

Cheers!

Hi, Alexander,

You would have had to deliberately open the Palette view (from the
"General" category in the Window -> Open View dialog). This is a
separate view part like any other view in Eclipse (Project Explorer,
Properties, Outline, etc.) that shows the palette for the current
diagram editor instead of having that editor embed the palette within
itself. So, you'll know which mode you're in by whether that view is
open (you cannot open a second instance of the Palette view, so if it's
open, it will be show greyed out (disabled) in the Open View dialog).

In any case, from your initial post, it appears that you do have the
Palette view open because only that view would ever show the "A palette
is not available" message. It shows that when the active editor
doesn't have a palette. Such will be the case for a Papyrus model
editor that doesn't have any diagram open (the diagrams are tabs nested
within the Papyrus editor).

Initially, a Papyrus editor won't have any diagrams open; you need
either to create a new one, in which case it will be opened
automatically, or else find a diagram in the Model Explorer and
double-click it to open it. To create a new diagram, select an element
that is to be its context in the Model Explorer (for example, a package
for class diagrams or a state machine for state charts, etc.) and use
the context menu action to create the diagram.

HTH,

Christian

Hi Christian,

thanks a lot for your answer and suggestions.

Unfortunately, I have not been successful. Please have a look on the screenshot that I provide in the attachment. I opened a diagram but the palette is still empty.

What might be the reason that it still does not work? Do I need to do any further customizing before I can use Papyrus?

Thanks a lot in advance and kind regards, Alexander

Hi, Alexander,

Indeed, your editor does not have any diagram open. Diagrams must be
opened within in the Papyrus editor, which can present any number of
diagrams in separate tabs.

You will have have to open the Model Explorer view. In that view, you
can create new diagrams or double-click on existing diagrams to open
them in the editor.

HTH,

Christian

Hi Christian,

thanks a lot. Indeed, now it works after I found the model explorer Wink.

Have a nice day and kind regards, Alexander
