      Hi Lucy Meng ,

      There is no simulation mode button with 3.31.x/6.7.x release.You can set start and end points and run simulation.The points should be set by selecting the connector.

      Hope this helps.

      It seems there is a limit to 10 nodes only. Is there a way to simulate more than 10 nodes?
