Edit Linked Document Templates

Enterprise Architect provides supports templates to act as a basis for your linked documents. On occasion these may need to change. You can access the template in the Resources window, and work on it using the Document Editor. This editor is built into Enterprise Architect, and is based on the RTF Editor that is used for all RTF documents across the system. The main difference is that the main menu options for the Document Editor are provided in a menu bar at the top of the window, not as a context menu.
