MS Word Export Improvements

MS Word export has several improvement opportunities which I will consolidate into this ticket as follows:

1) Decision Model and Matrix option to include this within the exported MS Word documentation

2) Legend needs to be captured with included model diagrams.

3) Business may need to include some non-model related content in the documents for immediately publishing when exported from Blueworks Live. Request is to allow users the ability to include non-model related sections at the beginning and end of the MS Word document.

4) Template improvement removing generic untagged template styling, being consistent with spacing between section using the normal style/tag or include the white spacing within the style settings. How this is coded needs to be soft code versus hard coding (These are not individually coined terms). Basically needs to be soft coded in a manner the word processing software can adjust the code via it auto template feature rather than hard coded which would prevent the auto template feature from functioning correctly.

5) Template improvement is expect to correct the font and font size changes between the users defined setting within Blueworks Live versus the redefined settings in the exported file. If this is still an issue after the template correction it would also need correction.

6) Milestone Print methodology refer to RFE ID 71667 might also provide the ability to include larger models within the document export.

    I hope this is still on the list for consideration. Exporting decision diagram with the process would be extremely helpful.

    Thanks for your request, Derrick! We do intend to add the decision diagram and decision tables to the Decision Word export at some point in the future. We'll update this RFE when we get closer to planning it.

    Also missed the request to add Tables into the document as well and edit them.
