    Default LCD graphic for user manuals

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm in the process of writing a User Manual for one of my fabrications employing a 16x4 LCD, but have hit a roadblock when it comes to showing a graphic/picture of the various screens.

    Short of taking some digital pictures where the flash is a problem, focus, etc, does anyone have any suggestions for software that may be available to draw these by hand and then paste into my Word/PDF manual? There must be a way because I've seen some very nice examples in other manuals.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Cheers,
    Bill

    Bill,

    You can use LCD fonts, not that hard to find I think. Then just put a green background for the text. Very easy to do with MS Word.

    I like to use the Oshonsoft PIC simulator to get really professional looking results.

    Hi.
    I think you can do that simply by using MS word. Try to do that and use the LCD fonts.
    Hope it will work.
