  4. Select one of the following regarding the mode(s) to excite:
    • To excite only the fundamental waveguide mode, select Excite fundamental mode only. When this option is selected, the mode type and its indices cannot be specified since they are determined automatically.
    • To manually specify the modes using their mode indices, select Specify modes manually.
  5. In the Magnitude field, specify the magnitude of the mode.
  6. In the Phase field, specify the phase of the mode.
  7. Click the Create button to create the waveguide source and to close the dialog.
