Representation of the actor in the use case diagram

Carlos Rodrigo Lima (311) | asked Feb 05 '15, 8:26 a.m.
In RDNG to create a use case diagram the actor's representation (stick man) in preview mode appears with an "X".

Has anyone seen this? Do you know why that is?

Hello Carlos,
Do all graphic artifacts have a problem displaying in view mode, but work in edit mode?  The viewing of graphic artifacts is handled by the converter application.  The first place I suggest checking is the converter.log file to see if there are any errors.  Here is a link to the converter troubleshooting guide.

No problems for me with actor representation on 5.0.0 - what version are you using?

Normally a red X means that there is an invalid link, i.e. the link has been deleted or something, but I have seen this problem even when there are valid links.

Here is the defect I raised on V501 GA, which you can re-open:

This defect has been closed as won't fix; we have no plans to address this issue.

If you feel the defect should be reopened, please answer the following questions:
1) Can this defect be recreated on the current code stream? (please specify which version)
2) Is this issue a nice to have change or an alternate approach?

 All other representations are ok except the actor. I believe it is no problem in converter. You use the RDNG? Which version?
