We have a big problem with this program. We are junior enginers and it's the first time we use this simulator.

We are trying to simulate a bow-tie dipole in this program and it's impossible for us, we are from Spain and we don't find any manual what can help us, and anybody can help us.

When we simulate our design, we don't know how configure the "mesh properties" because when we put low mesh it's different than when we put higher, then we don't know what mesh we have to choose.

Another problem it's that our "port" isn't in a face`s substrate, it's in the middle of the design, and we put the port in a face and after that we put the "reference" where we think it's right. is it so?

Moreover we have to try to simulate this design with a "discrete port" and with a "waveguide port" we think that the correct port is the second option but we aren´t sure.

So, if somebody can help us we thank him/her.

we apologize to our english, but it's very difficult for us to explain that in another language.
