Line - Goto/From Tool

Version 1.4 (1.55 MB) by McSCert
The Line to Goto/From tool converts signal lines to Goto/From connections, and vice versa.
Updated 22 Jul 2020

Editor's Note: This file was selected as MATLAB Central Pick of the Week

The use of Goto/From blocks or signal lines helps to increase Simulink model readability where appropriate. In models with many signal line crossings, converting some signal lines to Goto/From blocks helps in decluttering the model. Conversely, using signal lines for straightforward connections, instead of Goto/From blocks, allows developers to more easily follow the visual data flow. The Line-Goto/From tool quickly converts signal lines to Goto/From blocks, as well as Goto/From blocks to signal lines.
