    Hi, I've been following a tutorial to use basic circuit in Spice and couldn't make work. I'm using a mac, mac text editor and doesn't work. I also tried TextWrangle editor and didn't work. I don't know if this is about a file extension issue that i have or something else.
    Can anyone guide me through to set this up!? Thanks in advance!!!!!! see attached pic.

    You cannot expect anyone to be able to help you based on the meager amount of information you have provided.

    What version of Spice are you using? LTSpice? PSpice? Intusoft Spice? Something else?
    What are the contents of your Spice circuit file?
    EXACTLY what did you do, and what was the result?
    We need details; "doesn't work" tells us absolutely nothing.

    Since your screen-shot does not look like LTspice, my first advice is to go get LTspice. It's free, widely used, and has lots of support groups such as the one at Yahoo. I use it on my Mac and have been very impressed.

    The interface will puzzle you at first. It follows a verb-noun model instead of the usual noun-verb model. So instead of selecting an object and then doing something to it, you select a tool and then click on the objects you want to apply the tool to. It also makes heavy use of right clicking. It's tough to get going but not too bad.
