Your message to tap-l was forwarded to me by Doug Johnson, our chief
tech. For many years we have used a True Type font with all the
transistor, and digital components included . It is designed to allow
complete circuits to be typed directly in WORD or as text in a drawing
program. The circuits are constrained to a grid, but it turns out not
be too disturbing a restriction. The font includes meters, shielding,
effect and bipolar transistors in all reasonable orientations to
the construction of circuits. The only problem is that on the screen
font hinting done by the computer sometimes causes circuit elements to
appear to shift one pixel (up, down, left, or right) from the actual
position. The components align correctly in printing due to the higher
resolution of the printers.
