How to use the CircuitLab Support Forum CLOSED

Hi everyone! As we launch CircuitLab, the support forum will be home to a wide range of topics, including bug reports, feature requests, showing off circuits that use the simulator in interesting and unexpected ways, and other general feedback about CircuitLab.

Bug reports

To help us better respond to your posts, please include the following information with any bug reports:

  • a description of the bug
  • a set of instructions for how we can reproduce the bug
  • web browser and version number (try going to about:version)
  • operating system and version
  • a link to a public CircuitLab circuit, when relevant
  • a screenshot of any visual glitches, display problems, plotting weirdness, etc. when relevant (try for hosting screenshots)

Feature requests

We'd love to hear feature requests, as there are a bunch of different directions we can start developing in. Hearing from you all is the only way to know which way to go! Tell us what features would make CircuitLab a valuable part of your electronics design experience. Tell us what frustrates you now with the existing tools you use, and think about how we might do it better.

When posting a feature request, please include:

  • a description of the feature request
  • a story / example of how you'd use it (with circuit link if relevant)
  • some context on who you are (engineer? EE student? teacher? hobbyist?) and what kinds of projects you work on

However, please be aware that we're currently in the process of building a schematic editor, an advanced mixed-mode circuit simulation engine, nonlinear component models, and a website and backend for all of it. There are a lot of "to-do" items already on our list, and it's going to take some time to get to them all, so please don't take it personally if yours isn't immediately priority #1.

Showing off cool circuits

Please do! And use the

[circuitlab] **ID GOES HERE** [/circuitlab]

convenient BBcode-like CircuitLab inclusion tags to help you do so. On any circuit page for a circuit you've made, you'll see a "Make public" button right above the schematic. After clicking it, you'll see "CircuitLab forums and comments" under the "Link & Share" section. Copy and paste that tag into any forum post to get a quick image link to your circuit.

General feedback

Love it (or not)? Post a thread and let us know.
