    They all have horrible learning curves. I only use my PCB layout application. I have all the schematic figures in libraries so I can do a schematic like a layout.

    Have you tried Cadsoft Eagle? It's available in freeware version for hobbyists, but you're limited to single-page schematics and two-layer boards not larger than 3"x4". You can still do a heck of a lot with it even in freeware mode.

    If you want to do some PSpice analysis (simulations), try Linear Technology's LTSpice.
    Google "LTSpice download".

    I have Eagle, but I don't use it very often so I keep forgetting some of the functions.
    Is Electronics Workbench easier to use?
