Is it possible to split an MDG file?
« on: September 21, 2017, 11:43:09 am »
As many will know, we "roll our own" MDG, semi-manually.  It has now grown to over 10Mb and will continue to grow.  We suspect that some of the anomalous behaviour we are seeing around MDGs (which I won't list here) is caused by the file being so large.

We tried to split out the QuickLinker section into a separate MDG (since the QuickLinker doesn't need a specific MDG name for the entires).  It almost worked!  The link appeared to be formed correctly except for the multiplicity specification (which it didn't pick up from the main MDG.  Is this actually a bug (if it apparently picked up everything else)?

In any event, it doesn't work NOW!

So is there a way to split an MDG file into multiple files?
