How do I draw non-electrical lines in Schematic?
How do I copy my saved Titleblock and Sheet formats to a new schematic? (I can't find where those are saved, and I'd like to be able to share to another designer)

The Title Block feature is an area of DipTrace that needs improvement. Here are two links to some very basic information on the subject...

A tiny bit of info with a "getting started" rant - http://www.diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10785

Suggested improvements that I believe are needed for the Title Block Editor - http://www.diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=10787

For drawing non-electrical lines, go to the Drawing toolbar, click on the Place Shape tool icon (1) and then click on the Line icon (2)...

Thanks for the Drawing pointer, don't know how I missed that.

I do use the Title Block feature, but
- It wasn't intuitive to merge blocks by highlighting them then clicking "Create Text Field", need a note about merge on the screen when in the editor (now I know this its easy)
- Need more fields. Filename and Sheet exist, but need Date and others mentioned in various threads.
- Really need a way to save/load title blocks, so can share with a team
--- It would be great if the Title block could be a Part in a library
--- Alternately it would be good if some reserved strings could be used anywhere, not just in Title Block Editor (&Filename& &Sheet& &DateTimeLastSaved&)
