When  New > Model, The dialog box looks like this:

Those are not very distinctive model type names...

Have I configured things te wrong way. In this case: how to fix this?

Otherwise: I assume those different model types are created for a reason (to resemble Archimate Standard Views?) Could you provide standard model names so I don't have guess and to reinvent the wheel?

Kind Regards,

OK. Solved it. The old pitfall again: languages ;-(

Seems my ArchiMate method is only in Dutch. Copying the model type names from dutch to english did the trick.

Is it possible to create Archimate models with ARIS Express? I do not get the above schreen when I want to create a new model.
