I've been using qucs for a few years to explore RF power amplifier matching networks. It works very well and the optimizer function works well for me. But a few questions... 1. The results of optimization appear in the Optimizer window as the final values of variables. I tried to make a tabular display of those values, but it didn't work. Is there a way to display the resulting values of optimization on the schematic without clicking "Optimization", clicking "Variables", resizing the window, and the translating the results into pF, uH, etc? I would like to see the results at a glance without a lot of clicking. 2. I tried to make a set of Equations that would translate component values (pF, nH, inches, etc) into the F, H, and meters needed by the schematic and then have the Optimizer use the simplified variables, but it didn't work. I really don't understand when equations work and when they don't. Is there documentation that I may have missed. thanks, jeff, wa1hco
