Easily Overlooked Features - Summer 2008


This section is designed to highlight one or two features per issue that may be overlooked because they are not made visually obvious with a toolbar button.

File and Component List Size
There are two lists available in Micro-Cap that track recently used items. The File List under the File menu keeps track of the most recent files that were opened in Micro-Cap. This list provides an easy means of opening a recent file. The Component List under the Component menu keeps track of the most recent components that were placed in a schematic. This list provides an easy method to select a component for entry in the schematic.

The default size for each of these lists is set to ten. Both of the list sizes are user controllable though. The size of the lists can be set within the Preferences dialog box. Access the Preferences dialog box under the Options menu. In the list on the left, select General under the Options item. There are two fields available in the Options - General page called File List Size and Component List Size. These fields control the maximum number of items that can be displayed in their associated lists. The maximum value that can be set is 50 for each of these.
