Simplifying tracing from a Source Document
« on: February 09, 2015, 06:24:08 am »
As a Business Analyst I often reference existing documentation as a source of statements that describe people, processes, requirements, rules etc, included in my analysis.   Early on I discovered that Sparx EA allows me to import and store RTF documents, and then directly generate elements in the repository by selecting statements from these documents.   Unfortunately the interface for this feature is NOT very user friendly, requiring you to navigate several nested menus each time you want to create a new element.   To address this issue (and later to simplify some other tasks), I decided to use an application called AutoHotKey to reduces these steps down to a single Keyboard Shortcut.

To get a copy of my AutoHotKey script and a description of how to use it, check out my new blog.
