As stated by the OP I wanted to draw a circuit and export it to a PDF for a university project. I found out about them by a link on this site. When I tried to print, it says What exactly does this have to do with StackExchange? IF you use the embedded circuit designer (which utilities CircuitLab) you do not need an account and an associated png is ...

I often put a small section of wire on the right hand side to have the auto-scaling work out to a reasonable sized diagram.

Not just today — I've been experiencing this issue intermittently for several weeks now. I'm using Firefox on Ubuntu. It's gotten to the point where I "select all" and copy my schematic to the clipboard before trying to "Save and Insert" — at least that way, if it crashes and burns, I have a chance to open a new tab and try again without having ...

The simplest way to fudge the scale that I have found is to add a box around the schematic. It works for those huge resistors.. but there is no way I have found to make the shrunk ones bigger.. I kinda like the border too :)

Based on the network logs in KingDuken's answer, it appears that CircuitLab's server was having some issues and providing a response that the front-end didn't know how to handle. It appears to be working now. Hopefully it stays that way... There's also a lengthy delay while the image is uploaded to imgur, but that does complete successfully after a few ...

I'm unaware of really any EDA tool that allows you to use subscripts. A common workaround is to use underscores to imply a subscript, such as V_DS or Z_IN.

Circuitlab is a third party that StackExchange has linked with to make it easier to post schematics. The partnership allows you to use Circuit Lab in the old, no account method that they don't even allow directly anymore. You used to be able to go to their website and use it without an account. Like many other services, they decided to require an account to ...

EE.SE doesn't use CurcuitLab exclusively. You can post schematics as images, which means that you can1 use other software, provided that it can produce good schematics. I use Altium, OrCAD, Visio, Eagle, LTSpice for this. 1 In fact, I encourage you to do it.

Frankly, I don't see damage. If you dislike them having your account info, ask their customer service to delete your account. Then, aside from a few keystrokes, you're out nothing. Your original goal can still be reached with a screen capture. Circuit Lab provides us with a helpful tool for the site for free. The alternstive is losing a valuable tool for ...

For my graduate work, it was recommended for people to use Microsoft Visio to recreate their circuits with nice formatting and the capability to do subscripts for labels. It's still clunky for that if I remember right, but at least it's possible there. Visio has a nice library of elements for circuit schematics. Obviously, you can't simulate a circuit from ...

There is a nice little feature with Imgur that it actually stores 3 image sizes Take the example posted. Sure its big (and this is why I use inkscape) but it does the job. However... Imgur permits resizing To original image is: http://i.stack.imgur.com/020Wv.png inserting a sizing letter (http://i.stack.imgur.com/020Wvm.png) accesses different sizes. ...
