Synchronize Structural Elements

If you have already defined the Parts and Properties of a Block element, you can automatically display them on the element's child Internal Block diagram and/or Parametric diagram using a simple context-menu option on the child diagram. 

On an existing Block Definition diagram, such as this one:

  1. Select the Block element.
  2. Right-click and select 'New Child Diagram | Internal Block Diagram' or 'Parametric Diagram'.
  3. On the new diagram, external to the diagram frame, right-click and select the 'Synchronize Structural Elements' option.

These elements are added to the Internal Block or Parametric diagram, as linked elements within the diagram frame:

  • Each structural element (such as Ports and Parts) owned by the Block element
  • Properties defined by existing Association connectors on the Block element
  • Edge mounted Ports for any Ports defined in the Block
