Jumping into the middle of this, with a whole lot of snippage...
Don't usually respond to you directly, but here is a possibly better
Have a part called a signal source. It's generic so it starts with some
simple setup of AC=1, DC=0, and a sine wave at 1KHz. If you double
click it, up comes a little wizard with the basic settings in a flashy,
easy to use GUI. At the top is a little display of the waveform being
produced with buttons to switch between SIN, Pulse, VPWL, etc. Handles
on the waveform to set the values seen in standard windows controls
beside or below the window.
If you start to simulate, and you either don't have one, or haven't
changed the defaults, bring up the signal source box with a warning that
you didn't set it. Would help both the beginners, and us pro's when we
forgot to change things!
It might work...
(The idea didn't go over very well elsewhere... 8-)
