Hi there,


I'm using a fresh install of ARIS Business Architect 7.2 and I want to create a EPC material flow diagram for my master's thesis.

But for some reason I don't have many symbols necessary for this in my symbol pane on the right.

Even the Event symbol is missing. The Event symbol is not missing when I'm creating an ordinary EPC diagram. Theoretically, I should be able to add hidden symbols by clicking on the doublearrow, but the list of symbols to add is empty.

Why are they missing and how can I add them back?

Thanks for your help

After hours of searching the manual and the internet, I found the solution thanks to the german Book "Prozessmodellierung mit ARIS®", found on SpringerLink on page 42-43.

If you created a project by yourself, you'll be signed it as user "system" and there is a filter selected. In my case it was the filter "demo database".

To change this, go to View => Options => Login => Filter (click on the button next to the filters name) and select "General" (or similar)

According to the german menu: Ansicht => Optionen => Anmelden => Filter and select "Gesamtmethode"
