Default Electrical (Logic) Shapes in visio

To be honest, if you really want to have electrical schematics, I don't
think Visio is *the* application. Even if you have figured out how to do it
(in your case, you have to modify the shapes and add more 'glue' points), it
will still be a poor representation.
There are quite cheap basic electronic programs available (between 100 and
200 Euro/dollar, and some of them even for free), that will perform better
than Visio.

I have some problems using shapes of circuits and logic shapes (how can i
connect the 4 lines of a 4 line bus, just 1 line connects to other

shapes,
or how can i draw a chip or a bus with more than 4 inputs pins). were can

i
find help on the shapes. i am not an expert in electrical engineering and
just need to draw some simple logic circuits.

Geert has a point. Visio is great for diagramming, and that includes all
things electrical-- but don't expect the functionality of a true schematic
design program like OrCAD.

If you don't need all that functionality, and choose to use Visio for your
diagrams, you'll either have to modify the buses as he described or limit
yourself to other singular connectors for that use. Depends on your
expectations which way you should go.

Default Electrical (Logic) Shapes in visio

Hi
Thanks 4 yur posts. i dont think i need OrCad for some simple diagrams and i
appreciate smoothness of visio with office and future .NET version. i dont
have any clue how to modify the shapes to get what i want from them.
can you possibly give me some points in that?
