Publish a Custom Document

Once you have created a Custom Document and added Static and Dynamic content, you can share the document with other modelers and stakeholders. A publication can be created using the 'Document - Edit > File > File > Save As (Export to File)' ribbon option.

Before you generate the document you might want to refresh the Dynamic content to ensure it is up-to-date - see the Manage Custom Documents Help topic.

The 'Save As (Export to File)' option helps you to save the document to a file on a local or network drive in a variety of convenient formats, including:

  • PDF
  • DOCX
  • HTML
  • RTF
  • TXT
  • SSE

When you select the option, a Windows-style 'Save As' dialog displays on which you browse for the file location to save the document into, and select the file format to apply.

There are other ways in which a document can be made available to stakeholders, depending on the Sparx platform that you have set up. If you are using the Pro Cloud Server and have 'Pro' features enabled, you can make your document available to a wide audience, including stakeholders outside the modeling teams, using two tools that anyone with a Web Browser and the correct credentials will be able to open.
