Following up on Should we have Schematics? we can now proudly announce that the embedded Circuit-Lab schematics editor is available for questions and answers at our main site (and meta too).

Just click the new button in the markdown bar and have fun.

    Sarcasm? ;) Let's try to use it as good as we can. Keep pointing new users to the tool. Who dares to explain the usage - feel free to do so. – Ghanima Jan 8 '16 at 19:20

    Heheh, no- not sarcasm. You wont believe how many times I wanted to answer with a schematic and decided not, because all the online tools are are a mission. I enjoy this implementation as used on Electronics Exchange. Albeit, a bit late, but better late than never :) – Piotr Kula Jan 8 '16 at 19:22
  • It would be nice to have something similar for flow charts too.. not sure if there is SE implementation of it though. – Piotr Kula Jan 8 '16 at 19:26
  • make that a feature request if you like (but don't get greedy). You may also rework all your previous answers :) – Ghanima Jan 8 '16 at 19:28

    I will have a look at some some frequently visited previous answers, when I get some time. – Piotr Kula Jan 8 '16 at 19:30

    Are you sure the LED won't damage? LEDs typically operate at 10 mA, don't they? This one is simulated at 30 mA. – Thomas Weller Jan 24 '16 at 22:52
  • @ThomasWeller Did I mention I was a n00b? – angussidney Jan 24 '16 at 22:59

    It's all good. Continuous 30mA, peak 120mA according to the datasheet. – mcmiln Jan 26 '16 at 22:53
  • ... and as long as SW1 remain in this position, it should all be safe. – Bex Mar 27 '16 at 13:22
