How do you draw diagrams on PhysicsForums?

  1. Dec 6, 2016 #1
    Instead of uplading a picture, i want to draw a circuit diagram or some kind of a diagram and upload it to PhysicsForums, is there a way to do that?

    You can upload it to the forums directly with the "upload" button (to the right of "post reply").
    It has to exist as image somewhere, it won't work without any uploading.

    Yes.

    Use a drawing program.

    Save on your computer as:
    Accepted file types: zip, txt, pdf, png, jpg, jpeg, jpe, gif, docx, xlsx
    Max image width: 960 pixels
    Max image height: 720 pixels

    Use the upload button at the right bottom, below the reply text box to upload.

    Ok, thanks i thought there could exist some way of creating it with LateX using something like CircuitIkz i've seen on ShareLaTeX.

    As you may know, we do allow using LaTeX in posts. I don't know whether our version supports what you want to do. Check the list of supported commands.

    LaTeX support here is provided by MathJax, things not included there won't work.
