[TRNSYS-users] Simulation Length in TRNEdit

  I think you are stuck somewhere between developing a simulation in the 
TRNSYS Simulation Studio and making a distributable TRNSYS simulation 
for use by TRNSED. Did the suggestion that I gave you to open the 
control cards tool (the Simulation Studio icon on the left of a piece of 
paper with the corner folded over) and to make sure that the "Write 
TRNEdit commands" option is switched to "false" not work? Once that it 
switched to "false" then you should be able to enter a simulation stop 
time in the Simulation Studio. The reason that your modification in 
TRNEdit isn't being picked up is that when your simulation is run, the 
start and stop times are being pulled in from a pull-down menu that is 
used by the end user of a TRNSED distributable application. I would 
recommend that you develop your simulation first in the Simulation 
Studio and then only at the very end (if you even have to do so) 
activate the "write TRNEdit commands" option and then move to developing 
the TRNSED graphical interface in TRNEdit.
Kind regards,
