Easily Overlooked Features - Winter 2015


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.

Spectrum makes occasional updates to the Micro-Cap elements: the Micro-Cap program, the Help system, the User Guide and Reference Manual, and the Sample Circuits. Updating these elements is easy. Just go to the Help menu and select the Check for Updates item. This dialog box will appear:

Updates Dialog Box

Micro-Cap checks the revision date of all items except the circuits and lets you know if they are up to date. If not, you can choose to update them. If you update the executable, then Micro-Cap will make a backup copy of it before replacing it with the newer version. Backup copies of the other elements are not done.

You can choose to update any of the four elements by clicking on the checkbox.

Sometimes a firewall on the user side will disallow updating executables or even large files. In this case, you must contact Spectrum to obtain access to the latest elements via our web site.
