Make Simulink Synchronizer Dialog resizeable

Make Simulink Synchronizer Dialog resizeable



the Simulink Synchronizer dialog window is not resizeable.

E.g. when displaying the Item Mappings Table (see image), it would be really helpful to not needing to scroll and resize the columns themselves to be able to see what is mapped, but to be able to resize the whole window to see everything at once.





Thank you for consideration.

Thank you @JK_emAG for publishing your idea. However, we need more information as specified in the form you saw in the submission process. (questions below). You may simply add a comment to your idea. The more details and context you give to document your idea, the better. Think about ways to educate and convince other Community members to support your idea and present your case to the product management team for consideration.

Please let us know within the next two weeks.

1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders.
2. What product & version are you currently running?
3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.
4. What is the use case for your organization?
5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?


Here are a few examples of well documented ideas:

Additionally, I invite you to check out this topic where PTC executives explain product managers' approach to customer ideas and input for product roadmaps.


My company (:em AG) is consulting multiple companies (from all branches, automotive, medical, industrial engineering,...) in the introduction and application of MBSE, some of which use or want to use PTC Windchill Modeler.
We are running V9.5.
Currently we are looking at the use case of integrating a system model in PTC Modeler with existing physical simulations in Simulink. Being able to synchronize system models with Simulink would enable us to improve system- and component design massively, as the simulation capabilites of the PTC Windchill modeler are not suitable for our customer (ywe have previously evaluated SySim as well).

User acceptance is highly related to the usability and "look-and-feel" of the used tools.

Currently, the GUI of the Simulink Synchronizer seems outdated and makes it difficult checking whether your (possibly complicated and large) system model is mapped correctly.
This is also shown in the screenshot I provided: The shown table is very large and the dialog window can not be resized to show all information at the same time, one needs to manually drag each column to size, but then one loses the sight of other information. This is very annoying for the users.
