    Is it possible to combine elements of several types in one table?

    We model use cases as activity diagrams. Every action and every decision is a use case step. The names of these elements start with the step numbers (action: “1. The system shows the main menu”, decision: “2. The actor selects a menu item”). We currently use EA RTF generation. By generating a table of all elements (excluding those without notes) in alphabetical order, we get our use case description. We consider migrating to eaDocX. It does not seem to be possible to get a mixed table with actions and decisions using eaDocX. If it is not possible, we would have to add an action for every decision to our activity diagrams. Our activity diagrams would become larger and less readable when scaled down to fit on one page.

    Short answer is no.
    What you can do is to:
    – print each of the Activities in a table
    – print each of the decisions in a separate table
    – in both tables, print an extra column, with a hyperlink to the next Activity/Action/Decision.
    This will then allow readers to click through the flow of your use case.
    I thin the relationship type is ‘ControlFlow’, and choose ‘ANY’ as the target element type.
