I'm using REW to measure capacitor distortion, and the first few times I measured both the total and individual "percent signs" were preceded by numbers. But then it stopped showing those values. See the five black arrows on the attached screen cap. I just downloaded the very latest version, and the problem persists. What am I missing? And thanks!

Where is the cursor positioned, Ethan? The legend shows values at the cursor frequency, it is blank outside the range of the data.

Ah, thanks John! I didn't realize I had to actually click the screen and drag the cross hairs into the active range. It's working now every time.

As an aside, I'm finding REW useful for more and more things lately. What an amazing program! So far I've tested distortion of capacitors and transformers, and next I'll test a parametric equalizer I designed and built many years ago. This will end up as an article for one of the print magazines I write for, and such "alternative" uses for REW will be a prominent aspect.
