Rich Text Format Documentation
Rich text reports are documents produced by Enterprise Architect in Rich Text Format (RTF), a format common to many word processors. In particular it is targeted at Microsoft Word™, which provides the ability to link together a number of rich text documents into a single master document.
Typically you will create a Word master document, then some Enterprise Architect RTF reports. These are linked back into sub-sections of the master document and refreshed as required during project development. In this way the project document becomes an easy to manage and feature-rich work product.
By adding tables of contents, figure tables, header & footers and sections you can manage a complex document with relative ease. Simply update the Enterprise Architect RTF reports then refresh the links in MS Word.
