Tree View

Tree View Project Browser

Find and replace model instances

It is now possible to search instances of a specified model and optionally replace found instances with a different model.

To start a search right-click on the model you would like to search and choose Find / Replace.... The Find and Replace Instances dialog will show up. Enter the model you'd like to search for in Find Model and click Find. The bottom half of the dialog lists the search results.

To use the replace functionality select the items in which to replace instances, enter the model to replace the instances with in Replace by Model and click Replace. You might want to view the models in which to replace instances first, to do this right-click on a list item and choose Open Model.

Create new libraries below items of type Directory

You can now create Libraries below Tree View items of type Directory (for example, My Libraries) directly by right-clicking on the directory item and choosing New Model→Library.

Show other files in the Tree View

A filter was added to Show Other Files in the Tree View. Enabling this filter can helpful, for example, to quickly access makefiles associated with primitives.

File View merged into Library View

The Library View is now a mixture of the Library and File View from MLDesigner 2. As in MLDesigner 2, the Library View gives a logical representation of the physical model files and directories. In addition the Library View shows the Directory items Home, Root and Trashcan as well as any File items associated with certain models (for example, Primitive Source files).

Create Model option renamed to Create Primitive and Create FSM, respectively

The menu options used to create models from source were renamed appropriate to the respective model type, that is, items of type Primitive Source now offer a Create Primitive... option and items of type FSM STD File a Create FSM... option.

Automatic expansion of Library items by mouse over

While dragging around items in the Tree View, holding the mouse over an item of Type Library causes the library to expand.

Save As of Libraries does not copy Data Structures anymore

When using Save As... to copy a library, data structures contained in that library will not be copied into the new library anymore.
