Greetings.

I feel that Altium Protel DXP is a wonderful program with an insane amount of 
configuration capabilities, and is well-thought out in terms of integrating Schematic 
and PCB design.

However, there seems to be one important feature that either I can not figure out how 
to perform, or was completely overlooked by the DXP development team, and that is when 
doing simulations from the schematic. It seems that in the schematic editor, there is 
no provision for placing either voltage or current probes on the schematic as is done 
in many other popular schematic/simulation packages.

For me, this is an extremely important feature, for fine tuning a design. Without this 
ability, a lot of time is spent selecting nodes from a list, especially when it is 
desired to display different signals each time a simulation is run.

The closest it seems that Protel DXP comes to this capability, is to place net labels on the schematic, but this only allows for voltages. I can not figure how to do the same for currents, and even if it is possible, it is extremely inefficient to do it this way as opposed to just dragging a probe on to the point of interest.


Spice automatically produces a current scalar for every voltage source. These are
listed as something like I#br<name of voltage source>.
