Rendering external documents via the RTF Generator
« on: December 02, 2009, 01:22:21 pm »
Has anyone had any luck using the RTF generator (via a "model document", etc.) to include (aka. render) the contents of an external document (ie. still residing on a file-system and not an internally linked document)?

Some external content needs to be included, but also remain "editable" via WORD by other users who don't have EA. I can render an internally linked document artifact, but I can't see how to render something external.

Cheers, Rob.

With External files the format can be unknown, hence these are not rendered directly, however you can set these as  hyperlinking using Element::Files.Hyperlink field ({ElemFile.Hyperlink}).
