Libraries and Blocks
Using libraries
When the model file is subsequently saved, any new library name and/or location will be saved as well, so searching will not be necessary the next time the model file is loaded. (Although if Automatic search is unchecked, ExtendSim will still ask you to locate the libraries.)
Block searches
As described above, ExtendSim searches for the blocks a model uses by first searching in the libraries that contained those blocks. However, ExtendSim may not be able to find the blocks if you have renamed the blocks or removed them from the library. Once the library search is fin- ished, whether successfully or in situations where the search has been cancelled, ExtendSim prompts you to locate any missing blocks. The dialog offers two choices:
• Choose Open to locate and open another library where the block resides. If Extend- Sim is unable to locate the block in this library, the Substitute Block dialog will open which will allow you to substitute an alternative block from any open library. When the model file is subsequently saved, any new block name and/or location will be saved as well, so searching will not be nec- essary the next time the model file is loaded.
☞ Any substituted block must be substantially
the same as the searched-for block, or ExtendSim will report error messages.
• Select Cancel if the block no longer exists or if you can’t substitute another block. In this case, ExtendSim notifies you that it will put text in the place of the block.
