Some tips for using EA and Excel


Why is there no 'Delete Element' function in eaXL?


Because it's too easy to press the wrong button, and delete a huge amount from a model. We have created development versions of eaXL with this feature, but we made so many mistakes and deleted so many elements we didn't mean to, that we took it out.
