Model Documents and Report Packages

You can develop virtual documentation for output in both printable document and web page formats, using Report Package and Model Document elements. The process for generating web virtual documentation differs from that for printable documentation in two ways:

  • You use a standard or customized HTML template, which you select in the 'Style' field on the 'Publish as HTML' dialog; you do not specify or use any templates defined in the Model Document element 'RTFTemplate' Tagged Value
  • You create a Package list to select the elements for the report, and not a Model Search (which would be defined in the 'SearchName' and 'SearchValue' Tagged Values in the Model Document elements)

Access Click Document element, then Package | Documentation | Publish as HTML (Shift+F8) or

Project Browser | Right-click on Document element | Documentation | HTML Report
