Hi,
I was wondering what software everyone was using to draw layouts to transfer to boards for builds?
Free would be great, but I will by if necessary.
Thanks :D

You could probably find an older copy (2003) for cheap. For amp layouts it would still have all the functionality you need.
That or download it from online somewhere.

I used the open source Inkscape for some layouts: http://inkscape.org/

Visio lets you connect lines (wires) to parts so when the parts move, the connections do do. Very valuable tool to have. I'm sure others have this feature.

Do you know if Smartdraw lets you do that too.
Thanks

I found that the Pencil is most valuable when I need to quickly pump out the little taunts of the user interface. By default, this is a Firefox extension, but you can also get a version of the site that runs on XUL (a platform for Firefox).
