yuuvis® RAD Template Editor

yuuvis® RAD designer 9.x »

The yuuvis® RAD Template Editor is an add-in for Microsoft Word used to add controls to documents that are linked to object type fields and object properties. Documents with controls can be integrated as a template into yuuvis® RAD client. When creating a document file from a template, the controls can be populated or replaced with the relevant metadata and properties via data transfer. Data transfers can also be performed via the yuuvis® RAD Office Add-In.

The template function is enabled by default; the data transfer to templates is disabled by default.

The add-in integrates the yuuvis® RAD Templates tab into the Microsoft Word ribbon:

Open connection

You can remove an assignment by clicking the edit icon. All controls that have already been created are deleted.

Object type fields List of all fields of the document type. Double-click to insert a control for an object type field at the current position in the document.
