ADS - optimization

Anybody using ADL schematic ?

I am just starting to use it and either I am doing something wrong or I interpret the results wrongly.
My variables are defined in 'mils', however the optimization seems to take it in meters (!). I correlated the numbers and they match.
Am I missing here somethig?

You must miss something.
Everyone with experience of ADS would suffer this .

Be patient and check all your setting.

to get away from this problem, I always use metric and engineering number representation ( 5e-12 for 5pF).

a mil is 1/1000 of an inch (a milli-inch?). it is not a millimeter (metric) but english measure. quite commonly used measurement in the US for PCB design

I think there are 2 places for defining the unit for a project. Can't name them now, check the manual.

Why doesn't the original user upload his original ADS file and we senior users do the diagonosis?
