How it Looks
Enterprise Architect has a special way of displaying model information during simulation. This helps focus attention on the executing or active nodes.
During a Simulation, Enterprise Architect will dynamically track and highlight the active nodes within your model. If a node in another diagram is activated, that diagram will be automatically loaded and the current node highlighted. It is possible to modify the diagram while the simulation is running; however, the changes made are not recognized until the current simulation is ended and a new one begun.
Highlighting of the active node (s) during simulation
As the Simulation progresses (especially if automatically run), this highlighting helps focus the attention on the current item and its visual context.
