thats where i got them, and i think Louis sometimes hints to them to
main functions i use in the board view,
N <- this gives you the option to view the rail pres N then type in the rail your looking for like PP3v42_g3h
C <- this gives you the option to search a component like the u7000
V <- shows all component names (i Always leave it off (to mutch info for my little brain)
spacebar <- turns the board to the other side.
- <- zoom out
+ <- zoom in
R <- rotates the board (the software is bugged when pressing R you get a error pres OK and then press like the - or + then the board is turned)
You have to start from square one. Finding square one is the hard part. I'm still looking. LOL! Jump in & start absorbing. Watched Louis's videos almost a whole year before I even bought anything or tried anything. Pick up the lingo, look stuff up. As far as a brain goes, I do not have. But learning more and more the gap is less impossible.
Asking how to read a schematic is like asking how to read the alphabet. It's just letters. The real question should be what do the words mean in context of the sentence, or what are the components doing in context of the circuit? Big picture thinking where you look at a page and understand WHY that transistor or resistor is there is what's important.
Reading a schematic is just following lines. You don't want to read it, you want to be asking questions the entire way. Why is this here, what is its purpose, what does it do, what is this page of the schematic trying to do? Try to make it really general, then as you understand more break it down into individual bits and pieces.
