Rounding error

Does circuit lab have the ability to round more than 2 decimal places? lets say 3 or 4?

e.g. my volt reading at node 1 reads 5.12

However, the technical answer is 5.126V

Yes. For example, in the DC Solver mode, there are two ways to see higher-precision voltage:

  1. mouse-over the rounded (for example) "6.667 V" shown in the DC Solver panel, and the full-resolution answer will appear in a tooltip, or
  2. Click "Export Results...", then "Export as CSV" and the CSV will contain the full-resolution values.

Try it here:

This works similarly for the other simulation modes. Exporting your data to CSV will give you full-resolution results.
