So Paul...just curious ;-) , but

Why wouldn't you make a universal shape to cover most if not all the timing diagram shapes

I.e. something like

Props.pattern = <0000,0011,1100, 1111, etc>

Geometries for all transitions

Gemoetry 1 <sharp low to high>
Geometry 2 <shapr high to low>
Geometry 3 <gradual low to high>
Geometry 4 <gradual high to low>
Geometry 5 <low>
Geometry 6 <high>

user.selectgeo1 = if (props.pattern = 0011, 1,0)
user.selectgeo2 = if (props.pattern = 1100, 1, 0)

Geometry1.noshow = !selectgeo1
Geometry2.noshow = !selectgeo2

Then if somebody wanted write some VBA to create a timing diagram, it would be
   -lay the shapes out
   -plug in the right code per shape

So then could even think about import bit vectors (or modify imported bit vectors) to turn into drawings.

Just curious ;-)

Hi Vojo, interesting question. However, I can't see many users wanting to write VBA, and for most timing diagrams the exact location of rising/falling edges is important, well, at least, the relation between rising/falling edges and other events is important.
The shapes I have just click together, then you extend them with the mouse to the required length.

understand your approach...really more of artist approach (manually making drawings) vs eng approach (foundation for tool chain)

was just curious
