Title: search for text in .rtf document
Post by: Thelonius on September 13, 2018, 01:57:54 pm
So if I create an artefact of type document in a model and put text into the .rft document - it doesn't look like the native search function is going to find text inside an .rtf document that is in a model.

Is this correct?

I have spent 20 minutes searching everything Sparx and haven't found an answer to the above question.

Thanks for any guidance anyone may be able to offer.

Yes, standard searches do not return results from .rtf contents such as linked documents.

You can search them using a search script though. Check out this script to search for text in linked documents:
