eaDocX can create hyper-links within the generated part of your document, each time you print a relationship between two elements. For example, when printing the details of a Use Case, you might use Relationship Attributes to print details of the Actors who use the use case.
If the related Actors are also generated elsewhere in the document (in any eaDocX section) then you can insert a Hyperlink to the Actor description and label it ‘Used by Actors’. If the Actors are not included in the document, then no hyperlink appears, and the table just contains the Actor names, with no hyperlinks.
This is one of the ways in which eaDocX lets you tailor your documents based on the contents of your model.
Designing a document for Hyper-links
Having this facility in eaDocX is more than just cosmetic. It allows you to design your documents in a different way.
Because it’s so easy for readers to click on a hyperlink to find out more, you need only include a smaller set of information in the main part of your document. Supporting material, such as the Actor definitions in the example above, can be put elsewhere in the document, perhaps as appendices. This gives readers just a core of information to read but making all the other content easily available.
