For the purposes of circuit notation, is the matter of conventional or electron flow direction simply established by the polarity noted on the power source relative to directional components such as diodes? In other words, if I see the (+) side of the power source connected directly to the forward side of the diode (allowing current through), then I am looking at conventional flow notation, whereas reversing the polarity of the notation for the power source (leaving the rest of the symbols the same) would change the entire circuit notation to electron flow notation?
Therefore, can I simply look for the first (by first, I mean closest to the power source) directional component to determine the notation used in the schematic?
