No option to change power source voltage in Waveforms (Analog Discovery Legacy)

Question

Hello folks,

I'm a newbie using the Analog Discovery (Legacy), and attempting to run through a few experiments.  When using the power source tool via Waveforms 2015, all the directions and manuals show a dropdown menu where you can adjust the voltage (0-5V).  The manual from Digilent's own website SPECIFICALLY regarding the Analog Discovery Legacy shows this as an option as well.  I can't find any such option however in my program.  I should mention that I am powering the AD itself via USB from my laptop, but I don't think that is the issue as according to the status I am outputting ~5V via USB just fine.  

I also don't know what the little green bar underneath is supposed to represent, as it moves up only partially seemingly to random places when I turn on the "Master" enable.

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

If I understand your question correctly, you want to adjust the voltage level in the power supplies? There isn't such feature in AD1. You can use Wavegen and choose DC waveforms and adjust the voltage level

Thanks for the reply, but according to the Manual from this very website specifically regarding Power Source within Waveforms via the Analog Discovery Legacy, https://reference.digilentinc.com/learn/instrumentation/tutorials/ad1-power-supplies/start, it claims that you CAN adjust the voltage level.  Are you suggesting that their manual on the website is incorrect??  I would find that surprising because my lab is asking for that very feature to be implemented as if it should be working perfectly fine.

I was unable to fix this.  Bumping because I was told that I should be able, as per the manual on Digilent's own website, to set the voltage between 0 and 5 (considering my usb is powering a successful ~5v PS set).

If anyone else can help me out that would be super...
