1. Open/Create Schematic A blank schematic Circuit 1 is automatically created. To create a new schematic click on File – New – Schematic Capture. To save the schematic click on File /Save As. To open an existing file click on File/ Open in the toolbar. 2. Place Components To Place Components click on Place/Components. On the Select Component Window click on Group to select the components needed for the circuit. Click OK to place the component on the schematic.

Figure 2: Select DC voltage
For example to select resistors and the DC source shown in Figure 3 click on Place/ Components. In Group select Basic scroll down to Resistors and select the value of the resistor needed to construct the circuit, for this example select 1k. To place DC source click on Sources in Group and select DC Source. As shown in Figure 1 and Figure 2 respectively.
