Navigate Model Hierarchies

Subsystems and model references allow you to create a hierarchical model comprising many layers. You can navigate this hierarchy using the Model Browser or with Simulink® Editor model navigation commands.

Open a Subsystem or Referenced Model

To open a model component using the Simulink Editor context menu:

  1. In the Simulink Editor, right-click the Subsystem block, Model block, or canvas.

  2. From the context menu, select one of these options:

    • Open — Open the subsystem or referenced model in the same window and tab as used for the top model.

    • Open In New Tab — Open the subsystem or referenced model in a new tab.

    • Open In New Window — Open the subsystem or referenced model in a new Simulink Editor window.

    • Open As Top Model — Open a referenced model as a top model in a new Simulink Editor window.

For any operation to open a subsystem or referenced model, you can use a keyboard shortcut to have it open in a new tab or window:
