Default element summary to complex type summary

Thanks for this project, it has been most helpful.

I have a rather large schema with a number complex types that are re-used frequently by the elements in the schema. I would find it helpful if those elements could re-use the complex type documentation summary, if the element has none of its own, to avoid redundant duplication of comments within the XSD and remove un-sightly gaps in the resulting help files.

I've spent the best part of a day deciphering and tweaking the various SFHB and sandcastle config and XSL files without much joy.

Any tips?

Hi TurgidKnee,

sorry for the long delay in answering you but I had to finish my thesis before I could spent some time in the sources :-)

I am afraid right now there is no built-in mechanism for making this possible. But this is a great suggestion for the next release!
