In our Sparx models we routinely use packages for document sections, where the content is frequently copied directly from Word.
Ordinarily the package notes field is adequate, but a new Word source document has several levels of numbered indented paragraphs, so I have added a Linked Document in one of the child packages in the second parent package (Ctl-Alt-D). All of the original formatting is preserved.
When I add the LinkedDocument attribute to the Package profile, I do not get the Linked Document content. Instead I get repeated sections in my document that correspond to the names of child packages in the prior parent package.
I also tried created a class subtype in Model Guardian and then add a Linked Document (same text) to this element and add the LinkedDocument attribute to this element profile in eaDocX. Same results, no document, repeated package names.
