Miscellaneous 793
Navigator
• The popup menu on the right (Model Navigator mode only) is for changing the order for how the model’s blocks are listed in the window. You can sort by Block Label, Block Name, Block Number, hierarchical Depth, or Simulation Order (the default order).
To switch from one mode to the other, select the mode in the popup menu on the top left of the Navigator window.
☞ You can have multiple Navigator windows open at the same time, all set to the same or differ- ent modes. To open a new Navigator window, Navigator windows that are already open cannot be in Model Navigator mode.
Model Navigator mode
The Model Navigator mode is especially useful for large models with many blocks or when a model has several hierarchical layers. You use this mode to directly locate a block and open its dialog or to access submodels by drilling down through the hierarchical layers. For an example of using the Navigator in Model Navigator mode, see “Navigating through the Reservoir model” on page 38.
Database List mode
The Navigator displays the list of databases for a model (if any) and is one of the methods for opening a database window, as well as copying, duplicating, and pasting databases between models.
☞ All the ExtendSim databases used in a model are automatically opened when the model opens. The Navigator is used to open a database’s window, not the database.
To open a database window using the Navigator:
Open a model that uses a database, such as the Reservoir 1 model located at \Exam- ples\Tutorials.
Open a Navigator.
In the Navigator’s leftmost popup menu, select Database List.
Any ExtendSim databases used in the model are listed below the model name. To open a database’s window, double-click a database from the list.
Choosing Window > Database List is equivalent to choosing the Database List mode in the Navigator. For more information about creating and using ExtendSim databases, see “Extend- Sim databases for internal data storage” on page 747.
Library Window mode
If a library is selected in the Navigator’s leftmost popup menu, the Navigator displays an alphabetical list of blocks for that library. You can add blocks to a model from this list; this is often quicker than using the Library menu.
To open a library window and add blocks to a model: Open a model, if one is not already open.
Open the model’s Navigator.
In the Navigator’s leftmost popup menu, select a library from the open libraries listed below the line.
