Replication makes many changes to the database structure of your model. As a consequence the model file becomes considerably larger with additional information. If you no longer require a model to be replicable, you can remove all replication features.
To remove replication, follow the steps below:
|1.||If a repository is not opened, the menu option for removal of the replication is not enabled. A temporary repository (not the one having replication removed) must be open at the time. Ensure you have a repository opened at the time of creation.|
|2.||Select the menu option, to open the Remove Replication Wizard.|
|3.||Enter the full path and file name of the project to have replication removed. Click on the button.|
|4.||Enter the full path and file name of the base Enterprise Architect model (with no replication) to act as template. Click on the button.|
|5.||Enter the full path and required file name for the output file. Click on the button.|
|6.||Select whether to have a log file created, and enter a file name for the log file.|
|7.||Click on the button to begin removing replication. Enterprise Architect creates a new project containing all the model information.|
Your model has now had replication removed, and should be considerably smaller.
