Creating a Rich Text Area in a Simulation Diagram

You can add a rich text area to a simulation diagram to add descriptive text to use as a label or as a textual note in the diagram.

  1. In the Project Explorer, select the simulation to which you want to add a new rich text area. The Simulation Designer appears.
  2. On the Simulation Designer toolbar, click New rich text.
    Note: You can also drag the button onto the Simulation Designer canvas to create and position the step simultaneously.
    The new step is created and displays an editable box in which you can name the step.
  3. Double-click the rich text box to open the Text dialog box from which you can edit the rich text.
  4. Optional: Under Simulation rich text area in the Details window, select Enable Connector and connect the rich text area to a step in the diagram.
    Note: The rich text area does not appear when running the simulation. It only appears in the simulation diagram.
