include (insert) diagram in RTF document
« on: September 25, 2011, 01:13:23 am »
I am writing a lengthy document using the build in editor as word processor. EA has come a long way and the editor is very decent and very usable nowadys.

Using the context menu I can insert Embed Picture... | Link Picture... | OLE Object... | etc..

Maybe I am overlooking something maybe I'm just plain blind. But how can I insert a diagram.

I have a few diagrams (mind map, white board, etc..) I want to add to the RTF documentation in such a fashion they are updated automatically when I edit the diagrams in EA.

Generated documentation is not an option since I am (mis)using the RTF editor as a word processor replacement generating some documentation for presentation purposes.

thanks,

alex_b

Maybe one solution is to put the diagrams in a linked documents (element with stereotype 'document'). When creating the document by the generator you can import the linked documents. The editor in the linked document is very similar to MS Word.
You have to use Package/Element/Linked Document in the RTF Gen. for the import.
