Hi,
I'm looking for electrical symbols like switches, relays, etc... to use in draw.
I've been browsing for 2 hours now without any luck...
Isn't it strange that no one made a library like this yet ?
Could it be that it's so much work that no one makes it available for download ?
I"m prepared to create some symbols but only if they really don't exist !
So...my question: do they exist ?
Bye...

There is:

http://oooauthors.org/en/authors/education/ingots/circuit_symbols.sxd

I found from:

www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=10160

You should be able to make up your own gallery though:

http://homepage.ntlworld.com/herring1/oodraw.html
http://openoffice.blogs.com/openoffice/2005/12/using_the_galle.html

This site contains some symbols:

and you could look at the links from:

Mark Lautman has a collection of Custom OOo shapes available for download, and a tutorial on how to use them. http://www.lautman.net/mark/coo/index.html

Hello again...
I think i found some nice symbols on the french website but...
I tried to copy the sgxxx.sdg, sdv and thm files to my user gallery directory but oo doesn't add them to the gallery.
I'm using the correct paths...the new subjects that I create in oo appear in this directory.
I thougt it might be a version problem, so...
- I created a new subject in the gallery
- I copied the 3 files for this subject (sg107.xxx) to a tmp. folder
- then I removed the subject in oo ( oo then removes the files from folder)
- then i copied the sg107.xxx files back to the gallery folder
Of course I restarted oo every time Wink
Same problem...the subject doesn't appear in the oo gallery !
I wish I was more clever but I'm not, so can anyone help me please ?
Grtz...

OK, you will not believe this...
After rebooting my PC all the subjects (sgxxx.xxx files) that I copied in the gallery folder were present in the oo gallery.
Strange...not Question
However...it works now so maybe I'm not that stupid Confused
