Navigating Through a Running Model

You can easily navigate through the running model using the Model Navigation toolbar inside the developer panel of the model window:

The Model Navigation toolbar contains buttons for easy navigation through the launched model:

to top level (root) agent

Shows the presentation of the top-level agent of the launched experiment. This button is disabled if the presentation of the top-level agent is  shown currently.


select agent to dive in

The list provides easy navigation and fast access to the agents living inside the agent whose presentation is currently shown in the model window. Select here the agent  whose presentation you want to open in the model window.

In case you navigate to an agent population, a special control appears to the right of the Model Explorer:

Here you can specify the index of the particular element of this population you want to be displayed in the model window.
Enter the index in the edit box or use arrows to the right to increment or decrement the currently chosen index.

 If you dynamically add or remove some agents to/from a population, these changes are automatically displayed in the Model Explorer. 

Please note that this list shows only those agents that are located down the model hierarchy from the currently selected agent. In the case you need to navigate up the model hierarchy (one level up, or to the top-level agent, or to the presentation of the experiment), use the buttons described above.
