Ahmmm... To see a sine wave source you need TRAN not AC

It don't seem like you have the generater setup correctly, or the run
The "Sine" generator has three sets of text fields.
1 AC spec. This should usually be set to 1 Volt so that output=gain.
This is *only* used in AC runs. i.e. v against f
2 DC spec. This is *only* used in DC runs. v against v
3 Time domain spec. These are the fields for peak voltage, frequency and
offset. This is only used for TRANS runs. V against time
Flat AC graphs usually mean V AC is set to OV.!
You use the blue "SS" to set up the runs i.e. AC sweep, transient range
So, you need to make sure that both the generator *and* requested run
are in agreement. This is true of *any* spice. You must know what it is
you want to actually do!
SuperSpice, a very affordable Mixed-Mode
Windows Simulator with Schematic Capture,
Waveform Display, FFT's and Filter Design.
