Project Glossary

The glossary enables you to set up a list of defined terms for your project.

You can divide the glossary items by category; for example, Business terms and Technical terms. The glossary can be saved in Rich Text format for inclusion as part of a larger project document.

You can add, delete and modify the project glossary entries through the Glossary dialog or through the Project Glossary tab on the System window. You can also create glossary terms and definitions from text in the Notes window or from any Notes or Description fields that have the Notes toolbar. Once these terms exist, you can insert them into any of those same fields by pressing [Ctrl]+[Space] and selecting them from an autocompletion box.


Include a Glossary Report in your project requirements or functional specifications documents.


You can transport these glossary definitions between models, using the Export Reference Data and Import Reference Data options on the Tools menu.
