Version 2.5 is here, just in time for Waveme's 3rd anniversary.

New features:
- Analog waveform drawing:
Signal row now supports 3 new analog segment types: Sine, Linear and Ramp/RC time constant.
A mix of both digital (L, H, Z, X, D) and analog segment types can be drawn in the same row.
- Quickly change Signal and Bus segment width without opening a dialog box, by mouse dragging, keyboard shortcuts, toolbar buttons or menu commands.
- Project and image file dialogs now show an initial suggestion based on the diagram's name, and remember last directory location for each type.
- Default font is now OS and local system dependent.

Bug fix:
- Gaps: Handled occasional incorrect drawing of an edge's middle pixel.

2
Version 2.4 is a bug fix.

Across arrow: vertical shape had incorrect to/from unit selections.

3
Version 2.3 is now available.

New features:

- Export (save) diagram to SVG image file format.
- Directly export (save) color diagram into a black-and-white image file or PDF document.
No longer needs to first save as a black-and-white diagram, reload that diagram, and only then export.
- Open a diagram file with drag-n-drop onto Waveme's window.
- Value-lines: A new row element.
Horizontally drawn lines across a waveform, with tick marks and labels to the left of the waveform.
Most commonly used with analog signals to denote vertical values.
- Labels can be rotated, instead of only be horizontal. Applies to labels, arrows and value-lines.
Rotation is only supported when using True Type fonts.
- Signals can now start with a D value. If first segment is also a D, the left-end will be shown opened.
- Bus and Auto-bus waveforms can have open ends when using D and X segments, instead of only closed ends.

Waveme version 2.2 is here!

New features:

- Expanded support for clipboard copy/paste operations to Bus and Signal segments, row arrows and row labels.
Now rows, segments, arrows and labels can be copied and pasted either within the same diagram or in another diagram.
- Along arrow guideline can now be from any row to any row, instead of from current row to any row.

Bug fixes:

- Row copy/paste was broken.
- Saving to a PDF file with "A4" page size and "Portrait" orientation created a "Letter" page size instead.

What's next?

I'm looking into adding analog signal drawing capabilities to Waveme, turning Waveme from a digital-only into a mixed-signal waveform drawing tool.
Please share your needs, and post some analog drawings, that you'd like to create with Waveme.

Waveme version 2.1 is now available.

New feature:
    In Auto-bus and Auto-signal dialogs, auto-label values are not allowed to be left empty.

Bug fix:
    Redraw dialog window after a change in selected font to prevent dialog box from being drawn incorrectly.

6
Waveme 2.0 is now available.

This version includes UI changes for faster user interaction:
- Adding a new item immediately adds the item to the diagram, using default values, and then opens an edit dialog for further adjustments to the new item.
- An "Apply" button was added to all edit dialogs, General options and Waveform options dialogs. Now you can apply your changes to a diagram, while the dialog stays open, allowing you to observe and make adjustments faster.
- Row arrows are managed with a tabbed notebook dialog.
- Row labels are managed with a tabbed notebook dialog.

7
Version 1.7 is now available.

New features:
*   Signal waveform: Added D (Data) segment.
*   Across arrow: Arrow head can be bidirectional: Head can be drawn at the "From row" end, as well as at the "To row" end.

8
Waveme version 1.6 is now available.

New features:
- Superscript and subscript: supported in all text entries.
- Waveform name: Can be individually customized per row (font, color and alignment).
- All waveforms support segment labels, with identical and expanded customization options.
- Signal and Bus waveform, segment label vertical position: can be placed above a segment too.
- Multiple segment selection in Bus and Signal waveforms: supports duplicate, delete and move operations.
- Auto Bus and Auto Signal waveforms:
  * Added support for first, multiple gap, and last segments.
  * Segment labels:
     - Text can surround the auto-generated numeric values.
     - Supports wrap around, and initial wrapped around numeric values.
- Row copy and paste operations allow copying a row from one diagram to another.
- Title: Horizontal position can now be relative either to the whole diagram, or to the waveforms area.
- Horizontal grid lines:
  * Can select not to show in Spacer Rows.
- Vertical grid lines:
  * Can select not to show in Spacer Rows.
  * Can end on a given unit.
  * Can draw groups of vertical lines with a gap in between.
  * Can draw single vertical lines.
- Along Arrow:
  * Option not to show horizontal line.
  * Option to extend guidelines to cover arrow's own waveform.
- Aware of multiple connected monitors.

Waveme version 1.5 is now available, fixing a bug (Gaps dialog box did not open).

10
Version 1.4 is now available.

New features:
- Bus waveform:
Segment drawing is more flexible. A segment now has 3 (instead of 2) independently specified portions: Transition to level, level, and transition from level.
* This allows for a waveform to start and/or end with the level portion of a segment.
* Multiple segments can be placed back-to-back, with only the outliers having non-zero transitions. This gives the appearance of a single segment with multiple regions.

- Along arrow:
Select whether to show the right and/or left guidelines.
* This makes it possible to draw an arrow pointing in only one direction, and without guidelines around it; or
* A straight line, without arrow heads nor guidelines.

Bug fix:
- Signal and Bus waveform:
Incorrect empty segment after undo of segment deletion.

11
The user manual has 3 videos on the following pages:
- Getting Started
- Rows (row operations), and
- Signal & Bus Segments (Segment operations).
But, prompted by you, I put a link to them on the home page.

12
Waveme version 1.3 is available.

New features:
1. In Bus waveform, each segment can be further customized:
- Each data (D) segment can have its own line and fill color, fill style and label color.
- Each Don't care (X) and Hi-Z (Z) segment can have its own label color.
2. Convert from color to black-and-white diagram, stored to a new file.

13
Waveme version 1.2 is available.

- PDF page orientation can now be set (portrait or landscape).
- Improved user experience when running on Linux/Wine.

14
Waveme can be run, as is, on Linux by using Wine.
I tested Waveme with Wine (development version 1.9.21) on Fedora 24 and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

15
And me too  :D . Thanks!

16
I did modify my post to describe the intended audience.

17
A special gift (actually a tool) to all of us (mostly for electric and electronic hardware designers) for the new year!  :-*
Waveme

May your new year be full of hugs and free of bugs.

Now at version 2.5!

18
Thanks for looking.
Waveme is for electronic hardware designers (e.g. circuit and chip designers).

19
A new, free, GUI-based, digital and analog (mixed-signal) timing diagram drawing software for Windows 7 or newer (and Linux via Wine).
Intended primarily for documentation purposes, electronic hardware designers can use Waveme to draw a timing diagram,
and then export it to an image file (BMP, PNG, SVG or TIFF) or a PDF document.
A color diagram can be converted to a black-and-white diagram, and saved to a new file.

Waveme can be used to draw waveforms, gaps, arrows, labels and value-lines (see attached images).
Both, digital and analog signals can be drawn.
Highly customizable, with a wealth of keyboard shortcuts.

Webcam Video Diary / Recording video chat (Skype/Google)?
« on: January 15, 2012, 02:34 PM »
Thank you for making such valuable programs available to the public.

Do you plan on extending the program to record a video chat,
e.g. while using Skype or Google?

Living Room / Re: KVM switch w/DVI?
« on: February 22, 2008, 10:05 AM »
I've been using an

Avocent 2SVDVI10-001

DVI/USB KVM for a few months now.

It's working great for both 1600x1200 display and USB peripherals, but it's relatively expensive.
If you buy it, read the first review on newegg.com for how to use it correctly.

Hi Mouser,

Thank you for considering adding these options.

A simple uncompressed format allows me access to the actual RGB screen data, for further processing.

Capturing at a fast rate is useful for screens with windows showing video or animation. I tried this option with hardware acceleration turned off (as you recommended), and it seems to be working fine.
I agree with f0dder that faster capture is best achieved with no compression at all.

Could anyone recommend a screencast software that stores the captured video as successive individual files instead of or in addition to AVI or flash?

23
Thank you for making SC. It's vast but the good UI and help make it easy to find your way around.

There are 2 feature enhancements I'm interested in:
1. The option of saving images in an uncompressed format, BMP and PPM.
2. Auto-capture faster than once per second. Though, I'm not sure how fast is feasible...  :-\

General Review Discussion / Re: Free PDF tools review?
« on: April 12, 2007, 02:08 PM »
I use 4 PDF related programs, in concert:

1. GhostScript engine (free)
www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost

I have both the GPL and AFPL versions (you'll see why in a second). They usually get updated soon one after the other, but sometimes not.

2. CutePDF Writer (free)
www.cutepdf.com/Products/CutePDF/writer.asp

This is a printer driver (like many others) to print from any program into a PDF doc. It needs a PS2PDF converter, such as GhostScript.

3. PDFill (free and paid)
www.pdfill.com

PDFill has two parts, one free and one that costs $20, both rely on the free AFPL GhostScript engine (and it must be the AFPL version, not the GPL). PDFill detects whether an AFPL version is already installed, or else offers to download and install it for you, albeit an older version than what you can download and install yourself. So, I would install the newer version of AFPL GhostScript first, and PDFill afterward.

The free part is a GUI with 12 tools that merge, split, reorder pages, add watermarks, encrypt, convert to and from image files, and add header/footer info.

The paid part is a PDF editor ($20) that can be used to fill out and *save* PDF forms (what other readers won't let you do), add text and graphics annotations, and create your own PDF forms. It also allows you to add editable fields on top of a not editable PDF doc, so that you can fill in fields on a non-interactive form (instead of printing, filling it by hand, scanning and then sending it out).

4. PDF Image Extraction Wizard (free)
www.rlvision.com/pdfwiz/about.asp

This tool can extract all the images in a PDF doc.

Hope this helps...
