Default Tube CAD Question

Hi All,

I have a user question about Glass Ware's Tube CAD program.

It seems to me that the program asks you to provide too many variables.

In my mind's PIRE chart (P= power, I=current, R=resistance, E=voltage) if you have any 2 of the 4 variables, the other 2 variables are fixed and can be calculated.

This program has fixed topologies, and asks you to provide power supply, resistance and capcitor values. In addition to that, you must supply a current value.

Wouldn't the combination of topology, power supply and component values determine all currents in the curcuit?

Is anybody familiar enough with this specific program to be able to tell me how to set this current value?

I have asked this question to Tube CAD/Glassware directly without any answer. Other than this problem, it is an excellent program.

Thank you in advance for the help,
