'[OT]: Schematic Software?'

Hi All,
Re: Request For Software To Create Schematics To Email

I'm on another list and the issue of "1,000 words = a good picture"
came up. I thought such a means should be known here on PIC. I tried MS
Paint and, yes, it can draw lines, but... . I would like it to have
preformed electronic symbols that could be applied to a pallet
workspace. Ideas?

Here is the original query:
>
Bill brings up a good point. Does anyone have any recommendations for
a
quick and dirty way to do schematics for on-line explanations? Ideally,
it
would generate .jpg or .gif files of reasonable size without a lot of
extra
steps.

I could draw you a PC layout with parts, which is as good as a schematic and
e-mail it to you if you had ExpressPCB.

Some possibilities:

Smartdraw $69 http://www.smartdraw.com/
PCLogic Circuit Design $29 http://members.aol.com/atpclogic/index.html
Circuit Shop $29 http://www.cherrywoodsystems.com/cshop1.htm
MacroSim $29 http://www.macrosim.com/

Another possibility is:

Cadint FREE http://www.cadint.com

Draw your schematic, screenprint (to clipboard), paste into paint, save
as JPG or GIF.  A side benefit is that when you are ready to lay out
your PCB your schematic is already in the needed format.  Cadint outputs
Gerbers ready to go at most board houses.

Regards,
Dave

Well if you already have a schematic package, you can use "printscreen" key
to copy the screen to the clipboard in BMP format. If you then paste this
into a suitable package you can change it to jpg.

Well, thanks, Dave, Nelson, others,

I didn't have a design package when I posted, only Paintbrush. I tried
Dave's idea and downloaded CADINT for free. WOW, it's big and featured.
I'll be trying that for now, though I only was interested in the
schematic design aspect--for now.

I passed the reco'd packages to the guys on that other list, some of
whom are EEs.

Cheers, Peter
