I have also logged an SR for this issue. The SR is: 3-7085144741 : OSDDM: Format of a Note is not re-applied when re-open design (logical & relational sub-views).
Please could you do me a favour and log the bug you mention having created, against this SR? that will complete the loop for us.
Thanking you in advance! :-)
PS. I see you have mentioned in other threads also creating bugs against OSDDM. Would it be possible for you to list those bugs somewhere? Maybe as a sticky thread in the forum?
It would be of great help to be able to monitor any issues found in the product and manage our roll-out/use accordingly. I am at present trying to get OSDDM set as the data modelling tool used in our organisation.
I've also encountered this issue in the 126.96.36.1997 version, but see its already been logged as a bug. A couple notes to add to the issue.
First, the "work around" to get the SubView displays updated correctly is to uncheck the Apply to this view only checkbox, then click the Apply button. However, they of course revert to the default format again if you save and re-open the model. So not really suitable option, but good in a pinch.
I also took a look at the new 4.0 EA version (188.8.131.526), and the problem has gotten a little better. Colors now seem to work as expected; however, font changes are still not displaying properly in the SubView diagrams. And the automatic selection of the Apply to this view only checkbox still occurs. The same work around can be used to temporarily recover the formatting in this version too.
