New Feature: Displaying Operating Point Data on the Schematic

Today’s update includes the ability to see operating point data on the schematic. It operates vaguely like a hint, that is, hover over a wire of component and it shows the operation point data for that net or current.

If you find it distracting, and you might, disable it in Edit=>Preferences.

Also, if you press F6, the .op is recomputed without redoing the whole simulation.



Since nobody else has said anything, I’ll jump in here and say this is very cool.

I like the new feature too, especially that I can make recalculate the op without running the whole simulation.

One thing what I missing a little is the display of positive direction (e.g. a little arrow) of the current. For example, I was suprised for a moment because two series resistor current direction was opposite (I just rotated the resitor back and forth during editing and accidentally put it forward). But there are real situations where this is important.

The op values are shown on status line, but it works only when I click on the element or node. I would be better if the op values are shown alwalys in status line regardless of the setting in preferences (“Enable operating point display” swiches off both the hovering and status line display).

I would have liked to ask for power display but I noticed I works with CTRL key. Really cool. Thank you.
