Download Libraries

You use the 'Download Libraries' dialog to download Learning Center Library files from a Reusable Asset Service (RAS) Registry into your local file system, and install them into Enterprise Architect. Once the library files are installed, you can use the 'breadcrumb' path at the top of the Learning Center View to display the topics (that is, short task guides) in the Library, which describe how to achieve specific objectives in a work area.
