No "Increment Value and Run Section" in Live Scripts?

1 view (last 30 days)
I switched my project to a Live Script instead of a normal .m script. However, in MATLAB R2017b, while I am able to use the "Increment Value and Run Section" functionality by choosing it from the context menu in a .m script, I cannot find the feature in Live Scripts. Is it not supported, or am I doing it wrong?
"Increment and Run" is a very simple but immensely helpful feature when fine tuning values.

Thank you for your interest in this feature. We have something similar that is supported in the Live Editor starting from release 18a! You can insert Controls (slider, dropdown, etc) using the the Control dropdown in the toolstrip of the Live Editor. For more information on this topic please see the documentation here. Thanks again for the feedback and interest in Live Scripts!
Let me know if you have further questions or feedback.

Hi ,
Thanks for your feedback on the removal of the Increment Value and Run Section tool.
We are happy to report that starting in R2023a, the Increment Value and Run Section tool is once again available in the Editor. You can use the tool to increment, decrement, multiply, or divide numeric values in the Editor and then run the current section after every change.
To adjust a numeric value, select the value or place your cursor next to the value, right-click and select Increment Value and Run Section. Then, use the Increment Value and Run Section dialog box to adjust the value and run the current section.
The Increment Value and Run Section tool is only available in the Editor. To adjust numeric values in the Live Editor, use controls such as numeric sliders and spinners.
For more information, see Create and Run Sections in Code and the MATLAB Release Notes.
