Hello Lee,

Simulink names can be changed in the "Data Transfer Dialog" in Testmanager.
Right click on a item in the Parameter channel tree and select "Data
transfer" and edit the Alias column.
This applies to all instruments using this channel.

Some instruments also have the ability to set a individual caption.

Simulinkparameters are generated automatically and should be visible in
the Parameter/Channel Tree. There are no different methods. Generic
Slaves have no parameters. What did you try? Please supply versions of
for further analysis:

- Testmanager
- Etherlab

The file menuitem in Testmanager allows saving and reading Parameters.

If you want so save a selection of parameters (and not all) you have to
edit a "Mask".
File -> Mask Editor, right click Mask Table, add a new mask entry, drag
and drop Parameters from either Tree or Instrument to the Parameter
Table, leave dialog, File -> Save Process Parameters to file, select
your mask(s) or all Parameters

Mask settings are stored in the layout file of Testmanager. So save the
layout if you want to preserve this settings.

Regards Wilhelm
