Utilities addin for Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect

eaUtils is a free utilities add’in for Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect modelling tool. eaUtils provides features that have addressed a number of situations I came across over the past years in my daily use of Sparx EA.

Most eaUtils features come from scripts that were initially wrote in Enterprise Architect. Some of these scripts have been shared via articles published on my blog www.umlchannel.com, and improved since in eaUtils Enterprise Architect addin. eaUtils was launched with the aim to gather all scripts in a Sparx Enterprise Enterprise Architect addin for maintenance, installation, and diffusion purposes.

eaUtils 1.15.5 is available to download with UI improvements and a new Find in all Diagrams feature. The help content is up to date.

eaUtils proved to be useful with your EA modelling projects? Please share your experience in the new Testimonials section.
