I think much of the problem lies in translation.At least that is my opinion trying to work through the documentation.Such I feel is the value of this software that I would offer my services IF my German was up to it.(Which it is not).I remember employing a young German man resident in the UK to translate some German patent documents (1980s).despite speaking better English than most British people,The translations made little sense.

Not in this case.
I've continuously done too many and too big changes that maintaining second language is simply too much (imo) if translator is busy with daily job and other responsibilities.

Dou you need a German version? As far as I can tell, most educated people in the German speaking countries can read and understand English texts on a good level. In my experience it is better and more efficient to get the documentation right in one language (English in this case).

I don't need German help, but someone else might need English help has been downloaded 6762 times (90%) and German help 779 times (10%) in 2019 so German has not been fully up to date while about 900 downloads. I think alternative languages are good to be available, but continuous development and insignificant unplanned changes cause extra work.

I love this software, and have been playing around trying to design a crossover for some speakers. Good stuff. I do, however, see one bug.

When you add a resistor or inductor from the main input line to ground, it will change the impedance graph but does not change the other four graphs at all. At a high resistor value, it wouldn't change them very much, but at a low value, all of the levels should be decreasing, across the board.

If i put a wire/lead from the input to ground, the graphs all disappear as they should, since the input is shorted out. But if I put a 0.1 Ohm resistor, which is nearly the same thing as a wire, there is zero change to the graphs (except the impedance graph).

^Connecting wire over the generator does not kill voltage source though it does not look realistic. Try to make legal connections and check that node number of generator's upper terminal is not 0.
Source resistance of generator, buffer and other active components is 0.001 Ohms, and resistance of shorted component is 0.00001 Ohms. Those two work more logical than shorting of generator with wire.

^I guess we have to wait Microsoft .NET Core "99.0" with desktop app support on macOS and Linux. Wine, VM or dual boot are main options at the moment. Mono might work somehow someday, but Mono on Windows is not very promising.
Java VM is not an option at the moment due to argument passing by value only. Otherwise conversion C# -> java does not look impossible.

This one also works if there's something before driver. Shorted component (Z=0.00001 Ohms) is enough to drop level at driver's terminals. So I wouldn't call this bug.
