    Hi there

    Assume the model itself has elements such as "difficulty" (low, medium or high) included already and now I need to make such elements visible in the dynamic custom document - how do I go about this?

    Is it possible to include tags as well in the custom document? When I drag a model from the browser into the dynamic custom document, I need to be able to include any tag and element as I desire.

    Regards
    Bman
