States

You can create States just by double-clicking on a diagram directly. Or you can use other ways described in the Diagram Editor page.

If you want to insert a new state between States, just slide a new state on a transition line.

Show States on the tree

By default, States aren’t on the Structure Tree. So in order to show them, you need to change the setting in the System properties from [Tools] – [System Properties] – [Project View].
Show states on the tree

You can find this option from [Tools] – [System Properties] – [SysML] – [Project View] in Astah System Safety.
