We do not need defaults for the graphs as they are automatically
adjusted to give meaningful graphs in superspice.
It is much like a modern digital scope which often has this function,
a sort of auto-setup.

Transient run = oscilloscope picture of output when the function
generator at the input is set to sine, pulse, etc..

Time domain generator = function generator
Transient run = oscilloscope
