Behavior Overrides

In SyntheSim mode, variables can be assigned an override behavior. For example, you can specify a behavioral pattern such as exponential growth or a sin wave. You can also freeze variables at their intial values. Control/Right click on a variable and window will appear containing the override options.

Override Options


  • Click in the bubble beside the desired behavior.
  • Parameters for that particular behavior will then appear in the window. Adjust the parameters as desired and select OK to enact the override.
  • Cancel will exit this menu without overriding the behavior.
  • There are two ways to cancel overrides after they are enacted:
    • Control/Right click on the variable and de-select the check-box Override normal behavior. Click OK to finish.
    • Click on Stop Override on the toolbar to cancel all active overrides.
