Add State

The add state function can be activated from the Add State item in the Edit Menu or from the add state button in the Edit Mode Tool Bar (the button shown in Figure 1).

The add state function adds a new state (or decision option) to the node currently selected. The function only works for discrete chance nodes and decision nodes. If the node is a decision node, this state is named “State n” (where n is the total number of states of the node after the new state has been added). If it is a decision node, the new decision option is named “Action n”.
