Easily Overlooked Features - Summer 2014


This section is designed to highlight features that may be overlooked among the many capabilities of Micro-Cap.

Using the Shortcut Keys: Did you know that you can select the Tool bar component types with a single key? The Tool bar contains twelve of the more commonly used components and each is assigned a single key. Here are the keys:

G: Ground
R: Resistor
C: Capacitor
L: Inductor
D: Diode
B: Battery
I: Current Source
V: Voltage Source

Pressing R for instance, changes the mode to Add Component and selects Resistor as the component to be added. Pressing V selects the Voltage Source.

These keys and any other shortcut keys can be changes or assigned by using the dialog box at:

Preferences (CTRL+ALT+P) / Shortcuts

This lets you select a menu item or Tool bar icon and assign to it a shortcut key of your choice.
