- If you
delete any items from the Risk Map, the clipboard will be cleared.
- When installing
the latest version of AgenaRisk the AgenaRisk program group, start menu
item and desktop shortcut are no longer automatically created
(this is due to a change in the third party installer software that is
beyond our control). To run AgenaRisk you therefore have to select the
file agenrisk.exe that you will find in the installation
directory (this is typically located here: C:\Program
Files\AgenaRisk). You should, for convenience, simply create your own
desktop shortcut to this file.
- In Ubuntu
and on Macintosh the user interface may show additional scroll bars.
- On Macintosh
double-clicking an AgenaRisk model file opens AgenaRisk but not the
model you selected. You will need to select the Open Model option.
- If you
are in the Risk Table view and you switch between the Risk Objects in
Explorer, occasionally the Risk Table appears empty. To show it, you
click on the Risk Map tab and then click on the Risk Table tab.
it may be tempting to insert carriage returns when writing long
the expression editor, these are not accepted by the parser and so will
removed once the model is saved. Hence it is strongly recommended that
avoid using carriage returns and other special characters in the
- If you have more
than one scenario in your model then marking a scenario as
inactive means it does not appear in the risk map or risk table view.
However, inactive scenarios are still calculated when you press
the 'run calculation' button. This means the calculation time
will increase accordingly. So you need to be careful managing scenarios
for large models.
- If you
have set your Model Graph Properties (in Model Properties) to display 6
decimal places then the probability graphs may display values that are
incorrect. For example, a probability value of 60% may be displayed as
60.000002% instead of 60.000000%. Please note that this is purely a
display error; the correct values are stored in the model as can be
right clicking on the graph and selecting 'display summary statistics'
expanding the state values.
- In old legacy
models changing the options in: “Model Properties > Model
Properties” Does not have any effect (i.e. the original options
chosen cannot be changed). Similarly, if you import model B into a new
then you will not be able to change model B’s properties. So the
properties for model A will not be applied to B.
- In old legacy
models the ‘space taken for statistics’ in the risk graph
(when displayed in
its own window) was set to 0. To see the statistics you must drag the
scrollbar which is aligned at the right edge of the window.
entering soft evidence in the risk table you should not check any of
associated with an answer as these are used only to enter an
(checking any box will remove the soft evidence you have entered for
answer. You need to enter a value in the text box and then press
However, for the ‘last answer’ once you enter the value in
the text box you
have to click on the text label for the entry to be accepted.
- The text
style toolbars (including font and size) display the current 'default
for node text (meaning whatever the user last selected in the menu) and
settings for the selected node. So, if the current default happens to
and you select a node which is 10pt but which you want to be 12pt then
select it, even though the menu says 12pt you have to select 12pt in
to make the change to this node.
text style back to regular from bold or italic does not work
a node by changing only a capital letter to lower case or vice versa
work. For example if you rename a node labelled “quality”
to “Quality” or vice
versa it will not work. The work around is to first change the name to
different temporary name like “quality1”.
(especially when using older legacy models) a model can become
corrupted so that a previously working model starts to behave in
unexpected ways and even fails to calculate. For symptoms and
workaround of corrupted models see here.
- On the Macintosh
version some copy and paste functionality from external programs
does not work. For example, copy and pasting a table from Excel into an
NPT does not work (although it does work from AgenaRisk into Excel).
- If you are in
Risk Table view when you run a calculation there can be a delay in
refreshing the risk table.
