The issue here, imo, is not that SuperSpice was difficult to setup in
the example, but that there was a simple error in the circuit. You can
not display wavefroms in any spice if the circuit did not run.
The very question here indicts that things were imagined to be more
complicated that what they are. In SuperSpice, if the sim runs ok, it
will automatically generate tabbed waveform windows. Moving a testpoint
to a wire or pin is *all* you need to do. There is no setting up to do
or pissing about with "Links to test points" and other such nonsense.
Moving the mouse to the waveform will imediatly display its data in the
docked window at the bottom of the main window. There is no need to
fiddle about with cursors such like.

I doubt it.
To be blunt, pro analogue designers have *no* use whatsoever for
physically looking scopes and multimeters. Its nonsense. Look, when
your doing 40 hours a week simulations you want the meat. You want to be
able to immediately click on any wire or pin to get data. The idea of
using a scope type controls to control the display is quite daft. Real
hardware only uses the methods they use because of the limitation of
hardware. The obvious example is mouse zooming is far easier then
turning a dial on a software simulated front panel.

Windows Simulator with Schematic Capture,
Waveform Display, FFT's and Filter Design.
