While running a simulation for any length of time, you can pause a simulation using the Break command, which leaves the simulation session open.

To pause a running simulation, select Simulation > Break or click the Break button .

The simulator stops at the next executable HDL line. The line at which the simulation stopped is displayed in the text editor.

Note: This behavior applies to designs that are compiled with the -debug <kind> switch.

Resume the simulation any time using the Run All, Run, or Step commands. See Stepping Through a Simulation for more information.
