Feature Request: Distortion vs Power

I've added dBu, dBv and dBW for the RTA and dBu, dBV and V for the signal generator, that is in the upcoming 5.20 beta 2. Understand about the stepped amplitudes, but haven't got to that yet.
Any eta on stepped amplitude?

Thanks

No, I've been working on the measurement dialog and another tool, but the stepped sine dialog will be getting some attention soon so that will be an opportunity to see what stepped amplitude would involve.

Good on ya John - that is a lot of WIP !

Maybe a bit exotic, but imho a distortion sweep would be amazing if there was the ability to selectively plot individual parameters, including THD, THD+N, N, and at least 2nd and 3rd, and IM. I included N by itself, as the act of generating signal power can change the character of hum (for standard rectified mains supplied equipment) - although sweeping signal through hum frequencies may require plot interpretation.

The distortion graph already offers that for stepped sine measurements. Stepped sine also has an option to capture the spectrum at each test frequency and plot it as a waterfall or spectrogram - albeit all at the same signal level. Are you meaning the same feature set should be available when stepping amplitude?

I did some preliminary work on it, but the changes required are too extensive to go into 5.20 so it will be in the 5.21 beta.
