    I have two questions regarding controlling the display of TINA schematics.

    1) Does anyone know of a way to draw wires at non-orthogonal directions, such as at a 45° angle? I'm guess that this isn't possible, which is a shame.

    2) Is there anyway to turn off the box that surrounds text strings that you add to the schematic? It seems like this should be possible.

    There is no way for non-orthogonal directions. There are components you can select in 45 degrees though.

    The box and background of the text is turned off by selecting the appropriate background and border

    Thanks a lot!

    It sucks that you can't do non-orthogonal wires -- you can just make some schematics so much prettier if you can. Oh well.

    Thanks for pointing out how to access the properties. I had actually tried that, but went straight to the "Properties" at the very bottom of it. I blame it on my eyes -- it is getting so hard to read things anymore. Hopefully within the next month I will get the cataracts removed from both eye.
