Generate links to glossary term in Doc. Composer

A glossary term is a word or phrase that is important within your project scope. In Visual Paradigm you can define the glossary terms and organize them in Glossary Grid. The glossaries in project can be outputted to document using Doc. Composer with the linkage maintained. Suppose we have the model as below with glossaries defined and the description of Login use case using the glossary terms.
