RRC import to module from Word chnages the default artifact format to Text

Shmuel Bashan (4166) | asked Jun 20 '13, 12:45 p.m.
Using RRC 402 I import a word to create a module. I use delimiters to define types (use-case, BPM, etc).
These artifact are created during the import BUT their format is TEXT, ( for example use-case format should be "use-case diagram")
This makes the artifact useless.
Any idea how to resolve this problem ?

Hi Shmuel,

I'm not sure what you mean by using delimiters to define types. I know of no feature that supports somehow understanding such delimiters from within a Word document.
As to your specific example, I don't know how it would even be possible for Word document content to be interpreted as a UseCase Diagram. That format is very specific and defines a graphical artifact using specific xml content that must be edited using the graphical editors.

Stef van Dijk,

There is definitely a feature of import of a Word document to use delimiters in parsing to different artifact types. 

Please do a little research and provide a more relevant answer.

I understand the ability that is there. My point is that UseCase Diagram is a very specific graphical artifact format and it makes no sense (to me) as to how Word document content can be imported in such a way as to result in anything other than text, and more specifically, to produce the format associated with a UseCase Diagram.
So while it's fine to create an artifact of "type" usecase, it makes no sense to create it of "format" UseCase Diagram. That would imply a very specific artifact format that will be expected by the UseCase Diagram editor which will be used to view/edit such artifacts.
