A delegate document references one document to inherit properties and sections.



The Document Properties Marker Macro provides a parameter to specify one projectdoc document as its delegate. Each document may have one or no delegate document.

A delegating document inherits information from its delegate document.

  • For each section without content, the section of the delegate is automatically transcluded. This can be switched of by a parameter in the Section Macro.
  • For each property the delegation has to be activated by adding the document property control named delegate. If the delegate control is present and the property value of the delegating document is empty, the value from the delegate is inherited.


Employ Delegate Documents
Delegate documents make it easier to reuse content from existing documents as a whole.
