Inspect Properties, Compare, and Merge Evolutions

Use the Property Inspector pane of the Design Evolution Manager to inspect properties of the evolution tree, evolutions, and the connectors between evolutions and to compare evolutions.

Note

The Design Evolution Manager is available on MATLAB® Online™ only and requires a Simulink® license.

Inspect Properties of Evolution Tree, Evolutions, and Connectors

Select an evolution to display properties of the evolution.

  • To rename the evolution, use the Properties tab.

  • To view the files that are stored in the evolution, use the File List tab.

  • To enter notes about the evolution, use the Description box of the Info tab.

Select the evolution tree canvas to display properties of the evolution tree.

  • To rename the evolution tree, use the Properties tab.

  • To enter notes about the evolution tree, use the Info tab

Select a connector between evolutions to display what has changed between the parent and child evolution.

  • To enter notes, use the Info tab.

  • To view files that have been added, deleted, or changed between the parent and child evolution, use the File List tab.

Compare and Merge Evolutions

You can launch the Simulink Model Comparison Tool directly from the Design Evolution Manager to compare changes between evolutions.

To compare two evolutions, select an evolution of interest. In the Compare tab of the Property Inspector pane, select an evolution to compare to. The Property Inspector displays a list of files that have been added, deleted, or changed between the two evolutions. Select one or more files to compare, then click Compare Files to launch the Comparison Tool. You can compare any two files in different evolutions, even if the files have different names.

When you compare the active evolution to another evolution in the evolution tree, you can use the Comparison Tool to merge differences from an evolution into the active evolution.
