    No, you do *not* have to scan it.
    If you had the full Acrobat installed, you could print to the PDF
    printer - which creates a PDF file.
    Alternately, install a PostScript color LaserJet assigned to FILE and
    print to that.
    Then get the freebie GhostScript on the web, and use that to convert
    to PDF, TIFF, BMP, etc.

    Since you like to make your own symbols, use CorelDraw or other 2D
    draw program...

    Gee Jim, your getting nice in your old age. Cadence has abandoned
    support for the whole Orcad line.

    The above link is the last hurrah for Schematics.

    Aloha, Mark

    I am using Eagle its easy to use and it allows me to output to gcode for use
    with the CNC mill I have with a routing bit for cutting tracks .

    I have also tried Orcad it's more advanced but I had trouble generating
    gcode from it. It has Spice built in though!

    Someone has mentioned http://www.expresspcb.com/ , screen prints can be
    taken from this then printed to photopaper (the smooth paper that one uses
    to print digital photo's) via a laser printer with full darkness set. Then
    you can transfer the pattern by placing the paper over the copper clad board
    and ironing the back of the paper. This should transfer the pattern to the
    PCB which can then be etched. I have never tried this method myself but this
    site explains it in more detail ...

    Good Luck
