Quickly Transform your Sparx EA Model into a Word Doc

With eaDocX

The fastest way to create a document from a package or diagram. eaDocX reads your model and produces a formatted Word document with just 2 clicks

Producing high-quality documents with eaDocX is simple. Just two clicks and you have your first document. With eaDocX Quick Document, just choose the EA Package, element, or diagram you want to print in the EA Project Browser, then right-click to select Specialize | eaDocX | Quick Document.

This generates a new Word document containing the package, element, or diagram you selected. The smart bit? eaDocX examines your model for the content that is in there and then uses just that to make your document. Not only that, but the document follows your default Word templates and styles, so your generated document already looks familiar.

 

In short, eaDocX quick document:

  • Opens a new Word document, using your default Word Templates
  • Adds two sections to it – one with some Document Information, and another containing your package, element or diagram
  • Auto-generates a profile for the document. This contains the kinds of elements and stereotypes you have used, and how you have chosen to connect them together.
  • Generates the document.

​…and all in a few seconds.

Your document will include content that eaDocX found and decided was significant:

  • Diagrams and their contents
  • Child elements and any children of the children
  • Attributes and Tagged Values that have been populated (rather than just those that contain EA default values).
  • Relationships between elements and links to related elements
  • Internal requirements

If you're really lucky, this will be exactly the document you want.

More likely this will be nearly the document you want, but it will have all the essential elements defined, so you can now refine the document to look exactly the way you want.

You can edit the attributes and TVs that appear; change from in-line to table formatting; remove blanks from the document; edit captions and headings; show reverse relationships. And more…
