You can also insert predefined tables and link external images to embed them into the document. You can define your own template and file definitions. It's as easy as writing an OpenOffice.org Writer document and designing your own page format, cover, index page, headings styles, variables, etc. Afterwards, you create an XML file pointing to the parts of the BOUML project with the contents.
