LTspice XVII INI File?

Started by Jim Thompson February 19, 2018
Facing the realities that I'm going to have to deal with LTspice, I've
decided to become the expert ;-)

Noting that the INI file contains:

SymbolSearchPath=
LibrarySearchPath=

Does anyone know if these fields can have multiple
entries/directories, perhaps separated by ";", as in PSpice?

This would be a handy feature and would somewhat obviate the current
restriction of schematic and symbols in same directory.

If they are using Dot Net then yes, path seperators are supported in the Path class. I guess it would be easy to try it out. Cheers

Yes, indeedy-do, follows PSpice convention: SymbolSearchPath= LibrarySearchPath=C:\Directory_1;C:\Directory_2 INI File is located at: <C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\LTspiceXVII.ini> Solves a lot of pain that version IV imposed. (Can also be entered via Tools/Control Panel/Sym & Lib Search Paths.) ...Jim Thompson -- | James E.Thompson | mens | | Analog Innovations | et | | Analog/Mixed-Signal ASIC's and Discrete Systems | manus | | STV, Queen Creek, AZ 85142 Skype: skypeanalog | | | Voice:(480)460-2350 Fax: Available upon request | Brass Rat | | E-mail Icon at http://www.analog-innovations.com | 1962 | It's what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.

Yep, I just did get around to trying it... works just great! ...Jim Thompson -- | James E.Thompson | mens | | Analog Innovations | et | | Analog/Mixed-Signal ASIC's and Discrete Systems | manus | | STV, Queen Creek, AZ 85142 Skype: skypeanalog | | | Voice:(480)460-2350 Fax: Available upon request | Brass Rat | | E-mail Icon at http://www.analog-innovations.com | 1962 | It's what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.
