eaDocX provides a third, much simpler way
This is to include a high-level package into your document, and then just hide or exclude the parts you don’t need.
There are several ways to do this. You can exclude:
- A child package. This will exclude all the elements below it, including all other packages and their contents.
- A diagram – this means it won’t appear in this document but may appear in others. More about printing diagrams
- An element. This will also exclude any child elements or diagrams.
- All instances of an EA element type, or specific stereotypes
These options make it easy to choose and control exactly what your documents contain, without the need to alter your EA model structure.
