We present our analysis aimed at inferring average magnetic fields in slowly-rotating solar-like stars. Using the spectral line inversion code SPINOR, we perform high-accuracy line profile fitting and investigate whether Zeeman broadening can be reliably detected in optical data of unprecedented quality. We argue that our usage of both high- and low-g_{eff} lines does provide a certain sensitivity to magnetic fields that may, indeed, be detected. However, the measurement is subject to a model…
