Spectrum Software
Industrial Strength Simulation




Spectrum Software has released Micro-Cap 11, the eleventh generation of our SPICE circuit simulator.

For users of previous Micro-Cap versions, check out the new features available in the latest version. For those of you who are new to Micro-Cap, take our features tour to see what Micro-Cap has to offer.




Analysis - General


I just ran an analysis and I want to zoom in on a portion of the waveform. How can I do this?


The range of a waveform may be changed in a few different ways.

1) The X and Y Range fields in the Analysis Limits dialog box may be edited to show the desired portion of the waveform. However, the analysis would have to be rerun.

2) In Scale mode, dragging the mouse with the left mouse button will draw a box on the analysis plot. The waveforms in that plot group will then be scaled to that box.

3) Hit F10 or double click in the plot window to invoke the Characteristics dialog box. Go to the Format page and there is a Range Low and a Range High field for both the X axis and the Y axis. This sets the ranges displayed for the waveform that is highlighted in the Waveforms list. All waveforms that share the same scale will also be affected by changes in these fields.

Hit F6 to autoscale the waveform or CTRL+HOME to restore the X and Y range to the values set in the Range fields in the Analysis Limits dialog box.
