Reporting Linked Documents

If you have large quantities of information to provide on an element or package, you can attach it as a formatted RTF document either as the content of a Document Artifact element associated with your subject element, or by attaching the RTF file directly to the element (depending on the edition of Enterprise Architect you are using). In either case, you can include the linked document contents in your RTF report by selecting one or more of the Linked Document checkboxes in the report template definition.
