Multisim Voltage Controlled Switch SPDT issue - Outputting voltage when it shouldn't



As part of a more complex circuit that I am building, I was having unpredictable results with a voltage controlled switch on Multisim. I created a simplified version to see what the issue could be, and the results are in the image below and in the file attached:



As can be seen, the space bar simultaneously flips the signal to the switch. I would expect one of the outputs of the switch to go to ground, but it is outputting half the voltage from the input. I am not sure if the saved file comes with the "User defined" option marked in the Interactive menu, but it has to be marked for the capacitor to start with charge.

What am I doing wrong? Or how can this be solved?


I appreciate any input. Thanks.
