Unable to access local variables in the simulation debugger

Hi,

During simulation i am finding that if you have jumped to a macro, in the simulation debugger window, if you want to add global variables to watch you are able to but are unable to access the local variables from the variable manager to add those as well.

A workaround to enable local variable watching, you have to just know your variable name:
1. Step your program into the local macro that has the variable you want to watch.
2. Doubleclick the "Expression" text

3. Entering the local variable name like .myLocalVal and pressing enter.

4. Now you can now watch your local variable go up down, add, whatever it does! :)
