    Inglewoodpete's picture is exactly what I needed.

    Some times ago I had to make some docs for the AXE020 ; it was easy because the layout was provided.

    @hippy : Is it based on a software?
    I know this software for ASCII circuit called AAcircuit, link for download here:

    No, all hand made, Windows Notepad and fingers. I believe there is software which can do it but I have never found any which look aesthetically pleasing.

    I just started experimenting, found what felt good to me, and went on from there. There's really just a few key shapes needed, and everything else builds on those ...

    Code:
        Corners        Resistors      Capacitors
    
    .-- --.   __ __                     --||--
    |     |  |     |   .|.   __       |        | +     
                       | | -|__|-   __|__    __|__ 
    |     |  |__ __|   |_|          --.--    =====     
    `-- --'             |             |        |
    Code:
     Power Rails        Diodes        Regulators
    
    V+ >---.----.     |                  .---.
           |    |    _|_  --|>|--     >--|   |-->
                    _\ /_                `-.-'
           |    |     |                    |
    0V >---^----'                     -----^-----
    Code:
     Piezo     Speaker      Motor        Relay
                             ___       __     __
    --.  _|   --.  _ /|     /   \        |   |
      `-| |     `-| | |  --( (O) )--     ) _ o /
      .-|_|     .-|_| |     \___/        )   o/
    --'   |   --'    \|                __|   |__
    Then the rest is just feel and experience, working out whether --- or __ is better for a particular line, how far to space things apart. Some things are trickier than others; and some things are impossible; but that's what 'labelled black boxes' are for :-)

    Draw it rough then add spaces and move things around to get it feeling right is how I work. It doesn't always come out right first time but it is actually quite therapeutic. It works best for small diagrams and helps to visualise it in one's mind first.

    The great advantage of ASCII Art is it can usually be posted straight to forums, inserted into text documents and included within program code.
