Debugging and breakpoints when running software in ARSim

Currently I am running my PLC software in ARSim and trying to troubleshoot some behaviour. Would the software stop at any breakpoints in Automation Studio when it is running in ARSim? Is there a way to debug the software running in ARSim? Currently, I have tried to set some breakpoints, but they do not seem to break in Automation Studio.

Hi Kenneth!

Debugger also works in ArSim. But you must enable the Debugger in order to really stop the code in the breakpoint you have defined.

Hi Kenneth,
the breakpoints you set in Automation Studio Monitor mode should also work with ArSim.

Thanks for your helps. I managed to stop at the breakpoint by enabling the Debugger in Monitor mode.
