Simulink Scope Time Control

I have a simulation, because it has an integrated control system, I would like the scope to not capture until it has reached a steady state condition. There is no way to set the initial conditions of the whole simulation to a steady state. What is the best way to accomplish this? I have tried experimenting with the time delay offset and time span in the settings of the simulink scope with no luck.
Again How can I use the scope to only display a certain portion of the simulation? Like if my simulation runs from 0 to 100s, how can I get a scope capture of an arbitrary range, like 33s to 42s?
I would also be just as happy if there were some way delay the scope from capturing data, like 30s to the end.

Other simulators (spice packages) have the ability to delay graphing for this reason.

From the Scope window, go to View -> Configuration Property -> Time tab and set the 'Time Span' and Time display offset' to the desired values. The scope block calculates the beginning and end times of the time range using the Time display offset and Time span properties. For example, if you set the Time display offset to 10 and the Time span to 20, the scope sets the time range from 10 to 30.
