Re: DC voltage drop Q
It's not the MOST intuitive tool, but if you screw around with it a bit using PSU circuits you know or understand, the light slowly comes on.  
In the tool, you select a (major) section and tell it what topology you have in mind. Then you can select individual components in each section and get fairly detailed about its properties (try double-clicking in the various menus).  
Once you've completed a run, you select the V or I node(s) you want graphed - like in some SPICEs - and you get a semi-usable picture. You may find it useful to futz with the time parameters to delay and scale the graph.
