I am trying to print, but the image is too small, how can I make it larger? If they are too small is there a way that I can only print part of my schematic?

Click on the Export function in the top bar, you should be able to export the schematic as a PDF.  Doing this, you can select "Active Area" in the "Export Area" drop-down menu, which constricts the PDF to just the area of the tool you've used; printing from that PDF, rather than from Scheme-It directly. You can also select from the preferences tab to “fit to one page”. If not all the parts print, it is because there is a size limitation to how much you can print. If there is an issue with that try printing the schematic in multiple pages.

I can’t get it to fill the page, it is very tiny.

You will need to use the zoom in and out features to get your schematic to the proper size, next to the minus symbol there is a magnifying glass with a square in it, click on it and it will zoom in to a normal size.

Can I import an image or a symbol into Scheme-It?

On the top menu bar select “insert”, then “image”, from there you will have to enter a valid URL ( .png, .jpg, .jpeg ): in order to link it to your schematic.


Symbol


I am looking for a schematic symbol not found in the Scheme-It library, where would I find this? Do you have parts that have more pins than the original or do you just have one symbol for them?

Not all the parts have schematics in the Scheme-It library. What you can do instead is build your own IC with the custom symbol option. Go to Custom Symbols > Symbol Primitives and you’ll see different shapes of Part Body, as well as Top/Bottom/Left/Right pin’s. The body can be dragged onto the schematic, and the pins can be dragged onto the appropriate spots on the custom part body. Using this system, you can build most any IC schematic symbol you should need. If you find a schematic symbol that you need, but you need it to have more I/O’s you would still need to create a custom symbol as you cannot add pins to the schematic symbol that was loaded from the Scheme-It library.

I’m trying to use Scheme-It to make a simple wiring diagram for an on/off switch, but can’t seem to get the hang of it?

Under schematic symbols on the left you can go to switches. Select the switch that you would like to use, if you do not see the one you want, you would need to make a custom symbol (a square) then add the pins to the switch as you like. Then grab the other parts and drag and drop wires.

Is there a way to extend the length of a line without it connecting to anything else?

No, the line must be connected to two points, a beginning and an end, you may be able to use a port or node, to try and gain some length.

Will you build a schematic for me?

We do not offer any design services within Scheme-It.

Is Scheme-It free to use

Scheme-It is a freely available tool customers can use as much as they like without charge. There is no Scheme-It ‘license’, and you can use it to design schematics, flow charts, diagrams, and anything else they need for your business or any projects you might have without any legal entanglements. So long as you don’t try and sell access to Scheme-It yourself, you should be good to go.

Is there an update I can download to this Scheme-It?

No, all updating is done internally.

The Scheme-It software is very slow today

It may be due to maintenance on the software. Try to save your project and restart the program.

Can I change colors of the wire connections on this program?

You can change the color of the wire, but not the color of the connections.

How to change name of component selected?

There will be a part properties tab on the right when the part is selected In the part properties you can add the value and the name of the part.

I cannot connect a line without going from symbol to symbol, is there any way around it?

You can do this by going under the schematic symbols, then ports, and then port nodes. This will give you the ability to just connect the nodes rather than the parts.

Can I use two colors on one line, or change the color of a part, port or the connections on the part?

No, you can only change it to one color. However, you could put in a node or a junction and color the line individually to and from that point. You cannot color the wire connections, the color of the part, or the color of the port. You can change the color of the wire by clicking on the wire, which opens the "Line Properties" on the right margin, click on the black box to the right of the "Line style". This will open the color options. Click on the color you want to change the wire color to and then click "OK".

I was wondering if there is a way to insert lines into my schematic. Is there a possibility to erase only part of a line?

No, the only way to have lines on the schematic is by connecting wires to the parts, you cannot free draw. You would have to erase the whole wire and not just a segment of it, or you could use ports to be the end point and the start of a wire.

How do I draw a construction line?

You cannot just draw lines, you can only draw wires that connect the pins, however, you can change the line properties to be dashed, solid, or dotted.

You cannot directly copy and paste from Scheme-It. However, if you have a link of it in a valid URL such as a .png, .jpg, or a .jpeg you can use the “insert” feature and copy the link.

The problem is that when I'm connecting pins with wires, the wires overlap. So I want to move them so they don't overlap.

Click and make your connection, then go around the object and click again. Then go around the other side and click again. As long as you have not connected the wire between two points you can click and drag wherever you want to make the wires go around objects.

Can I link two parts into one?

You will need to create a custom symbol in order achieve a part that is two in one. Another option is to create it in paint then insert it into your schematic.
