# LTspice: How can I show multiple probes with waveforms using stepping parameters in different colors?

I'm using LTspice IV (4.23I) and I am using the .step command to vary the capacitance of a capacitor, so that I can see multiple waveforms for a single probe.

If there is only one probe, then the stepping values have different colors (see below).

My issue is that if I add another probe, the stepped waveform(s) generated from a single probe become the same color. (See blue waveforms below)

How can I keep them as different colors, while also keeping multiple plobes on the same plot?

• I have given up looking for a solution, I think you can't. Maybe the new XVII has something, but I doubt it. – PlasmaHH Dec 1 '16 at 15:26
• I have been using LTSpice almost daily for 4+ years and don't know of any way around this. Just to make sure - you know you can create multiple panes in one plot window, right? If there is one trace per pane, stepped traces will stay different colors. This is what I do to produce a plot with many traces over a stepped parameter. – user49628 Dec 1 '16 at 17:05
• @user49628 Yeah I have been putting them in different panes, I was hoping for a trick or hack or something so they can be overlayed on each other. – Bort Dec 1 '16 at 17:56

• @laptop2d That doesn't make the question off-topic. It just makes the answer very simple: "you can't". If you think that's correct, write it as an answer. – duskwuff Dec 31 '16 at 5:45
