New (Browser)

When you create a new project element outside of the Project Explorer, the New dialog opens where you must specify the Work Unit within which the new element will be created.

Interface Element


Opens a search field where standard alphanumeric entries filter out unmatching elements from the view. Learn more in Using tables.

Exceptionally, however, the New dialog searches, like those of the Project Explorer - Browser, do not work exactly the same as other search filters. Instead, they work similarly to Searching for elements within your project. This means that:

  • Searches are also performed in the comments or notes of objects; and

  • Searches only evaluate from the beginning of words, so matches in the middle of words are not detected.

    • Also, in addition to spaces, special characters (such as '-', '_', '!', and ',') and case changes (from lower to upper) are considered as word separators.

Click the Close icon to the left of the search icon to close the search field and remove the filter.


Displays the structure in the Project Explorer for the corresponding project element. For example, if you click the browse […] button in the Output Bus panel in the Property Editor, the Bus hierarchy will be displayed.


The name of the new project element.

Creates the new project element in the Work Unit that you selected.
