New LT Spice

Started by John Larkin February 17, 2018

The new LT Spice XVII seems to work and seems fast, but I can't get
grid lines to appear on waveform plots. Any suggestions?

The old (version IV) and new versions are both on my desktop now for
some reason.

OK, fixed it. Had to right-click the waveform area and click View/grid. -- John Larkin Highland Technology, Inc trk jlarkin att highlandtechnology dott com http://www.highlandtechnology.com

The top bar is ugly. Looks like it was done in DOS or worse. Also, you can get the grid as you discovered, but the View drop down menu has a check box for the same and does not work on my computer. Sad. How do I go back to the previous version?

Oops! The View drop-down menu is for the schematic panel only. My mistake.

Install and run it on a different machine.

I installed the new one (XVII) and both are on my PC desktop. I can run either. They each have their own libraries and such. -- John Larkin Highland Technology, Inc trk jlarkin att highlandtechnology dott com http://www.highlandtechnology.com

I created an empty all-white JPG file and aimed the program at that. I could do my company logo or something, too. Looks like Analog Devices is warming up to LT Spice. -- John Larkin Highland Technology, Inc trk jlarkin att highlandtechnology dott com http://www.highlandtechnology.com

In my opinion, XVII sucks. The more I use it, the more problems appear.
