TM1 Documentation tool (Documenter)

Hi CPMians,

We all know that post-development, how boring, hectic, & time-consuming is Documanting Task is?
I noticed that unlike in Cognos Planning, in TM1 its difficult to export & document the objects such as Cubes, Dimensions, etc details in a file.
Moreover; during development or support task, when the model becomes huge or complex sometimes people lose the exact data flow
of the model (as Rule sets are difficult to understand). Some times developer ,by mistake, deletes an object (be it a cube, dimension, element, or a subset)
that is providing is data to some other object. TM1 do not disallow to do so, but the model goes on a toss.

So, here I present TM-One DoKumentor Version 2.5
Please install this software with ADMIN RIGHTS on machine
I believe, it will very useful to TM1 Consultants & Developers, and the Organisations as well.
