That's correct. You can't. I don't think that there are any schematic
captures that talk to each other. Its amazingly difficult to turn a
netlist into a readable schematic.
I doubt even a redraw would be possible for sc111 as it only supports a
single page with no schematic hierarchy. However, as a pure spice
accelerator it performs very well indeed. I have even used it on a few
occasions myself (2.5GHz PLL)with a hieratical netlist generated from
SuperSpice, and re-read in its ASCII output file so I could do x-probing
completely within SuperSpice. SC111 is at least 3 time faster then
common XSpice, so for what would be a 1 hour long run, can be quite
SuperSpice, a very affordable Mixed-Mode
Windows Simulator with Schematic Capture,
Waveform Display, FFT's and Filter Design.
