Hello Astha,

Can you check if the other earlier versions of Scilab work for you? The problem that you have mentioned seems to be Windows 8 system specific and will be difficult to solve.

Can you try downloading Scilab 5.5.2? This includes scinotes.

Hello Astha,

Is this happening for specific block(s)? If yes, please give the block name(s) also.

You will have to give more information about your environment, especially the Java/JRE version.

Are you importing an existing diagram? If importing, try creating the same diagram again in a new window and then changing the block properties in that diagram.

Please post the Java/JRE version also.

Scilab 5.3.3 is very old and will certainly have some inconsistencies on an updated OS. Please try Scilab 6.0.2 and Scilab 5.5.2. One of them should work.
