Default Schematic Drawing Program or Electronics Symbols

Can anyone recommend a good Macintosh-based schematic drawing program? Alternatively, can anyone tell me where I might obtain a library of electronics symbols?

You running under OS 9 (or earlier or under X?

I use Vectorworks ... probably a bit over the top price wise if you can't amotize its cost over paying work -- it is a full-blown professional CAD program (IMHO opion it embarres the industry standard AutoCAD & at a price that leasves you enuff cash to buy a machine to run it on). Because i use it i haven't explored much else.

Here is an article on "5 affordable CAD programs"

You can do scematics in almost any Mac drawing program This includes AppleWorks, Illustrator, Freehand & more.

Raster libraries like TubePad encourage using raster editors (ie paint). Paint programs are a bit harder to edit in -- but you can snatch pre-drawn symbols from any schematic posted on the web. You can also use them to edit & prep pictures for all sorts of applications including the web GraphicConverter, PhotoShop Elements (an absolute bargin), AppleWorks are examples.

VectorWorks comes with a set of electronic drawing symbols, but i've ended up making up most of mine (and they are evolving continually. Drawing programs are also good for doing speaker & chassis drawings...
