It was caused by a heading conflict.


The best way to do this, is to drag and drop the requirements into the Use Case when is open in the Use case Diagram.
It gets link right away.
So when you run the Documentation or your Requirement Relationship Matrix it will show linked.

I published an eBook to do all this and much more at

Thx I'll take a look.

For now, I used composite diagrams but that isn't a preferred solution.

15 and 14. Today I will create all my templates again, hoping that that will solve the problem.

Uml Process / Link between project requirements and use case diagrams
« on: April 17, 2020, 10:32:37 pm »
I'm busy with the setup of a repository in order to generate documentation.

For each project we have a separate project package. The starting point are requirements. We have a package called 'Requirements', with underneath four child packages (Functional Requirements, Non-Functional Requirements, Architectural Requirements and Security Requirements). In each of that packages there's a requirement diagram and a sub package with the requirement elements.

Each project can have multiple use case diagrams, so my question is: what's the best practice to link those requirements to de use case diagrams? Or better, how can I link my 'project' to the requirements and the use case diagrams? What's the best starting point to generate documentation? The project folder, or a diagram?

I doesn't help.

We use EA in a Citrix VDI console, could that cause the problem?

By some reason, the quality of the images in my reports is like this:

I tried it whit different templates and styles, but this poor quality stays what it is.


I discovered that the problem is caused by the combination of adding the pre/post conditions in combination with adding the composite sequence diagram of the use case. When I delete the sequence diagram template from my report, Word opens smoothly.

I tried the following workarounds:
- adding the sequence diagram within the same template as the pre/post conditions --> Word crashes
- adding the sequence diagram in another template following the one with the pre/post conditions --> Word crashes
- adding the sequence diagram by means of a fragment in both templates -> Word crashes

My template:

As long as I don't add any pre- or postconditions to my use case, the document generates without any problem and I can open it smoothly with Word.
But, when I add a pre- and/or a postcondition to my use case, the document generates without any problem, but when I open it with Word, Word crashes.

In some cases, MS Word crashes after generating a document. I did some trial and error with empty templates, templates with just a title, just a diagram image, ... But I can't find what particular parameter causes that problem.

UPDATE: I have a template with an image of a data model, and only when I add this to my report, MS Word crashes while browsing.

What is the appropriate way to center something? I centered it with the "center" button at the top (Paragraph) but it doesn't work.

I centered the {Diagram.DiagramImg} field in my template, but after generating the document it's always aligned left.
Am I missing something? Should this be determined in the stylesheet?

I spent a lot of time creating that stylesheet in Word. Hopefully I can fix that heading numbering, otherwise it would be a shame.

I created a new style sheet from scratch, in Word. Maybe that causes the problem.

For each type of heading (heading 1, heading 2 and heading 3) I tried to Edit list item and select the same list (there are a lot!!!). But it does not work, when I select a list, he sets it back to the original list.
It's hard to believe that this is the only way to get my numbering fixed?


Still another issue  8)

When I start with a new heading 1 title, like for example 2. Descriptions. I want that my heading 2 titles then start again with 2.1, 2.3, ... But they don't, they continue with numbering following on the ones from the previous chapter.
You need to make sure all the numbered headings are in the same numberset (or whatever that was called)


You mean 'List and Overrides' ?
