Use the main window to add text to describe any traceability element without modifying a project document source file.

Adding Text

Complete the following steps to add text to an element.

  1. In the Coverage Analysis view or Impact Analysis view, select any element in any column.
  2. Right-click the element and select Add Text from the context menu to launch a dialog box in which you can add text for the selected element.
  3. Enter text in the Type some text for selection control and click OK.

Requirements Gateway saves the added information in a separate filename_modification_.txt file in the same directory as the project and applies a modification file to the original project document. Requirements Gateway displays a yellow icon on the original project document to indicate that the document has a modification file applied.

The added text appears under the Text addition header in the Text section in the following locations:

  • In the Selection pane on the Texts and Reference Attributes tab of the Coverage Analysis or Impact Analysis view.
  • In the Text pane of the Graphical or Requirement Details view.

Removing Text

To modify or delete the text, right-click the selected element in the Coverage Analysis or Impact Analysis view and select Edit Added Text from the context menu.
