Edit Linked Documents

Enterprise Architect provides a Windows-like word processor to help you edit Linked Documents. This is a simplified version of the RTF Style Template Editor, and it provides the same convenient features.

The main difference between the two editors is that you access the RTF Style Template Editor features through a menu bar at the top of the screen, whilst you access the Linked Document Editor features through a context menu. To access the context menu, just right-click anywhere on the document.


You can format and edit the document in a number of ways, and add links from and references to the content of the document. For example, you can highlight a word or term in the linked document and select Create | Glossary Definition to create a glossary definition for that term. Anyone reading the document can, if they check for the term in the Project Glossary, read the definition.

The following topics provide assistance on using the Document Editor.
