    Anyone have a library of stencils that they are able to offer? I have some, and have made some of my own, but am always looking for more. Does not matter what type, as long as they are related to automation drawings.

    Honeywell used to distribute several on a documentation CD a few years ago - I still use them, and can pass them on if you don't have them...as well, I've got some compiled from various employees we've had over the years - JCI, Auto-Matrix, misc, etc...just e-mail me.

    Hey Code I would be interested in a copy of the stencils you have

    I have a junk email address

    Also a little cheat I have found, if you use a certain manufacturers product, say a DC power supply, go to their website and pull up the PDF on it, there usually is a black and white pic of it, click on the camera icon on your toolbar and click and drag a box around the pic, open visio and copy and paste it as a stencil.

    I took a pic of my screen but cant figure out how to upload the file, nothing on my computer except the clipboard viewer will open it, if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.

    On Acrobat 7.0 if you have a PDF file, there is a toolbar with save a copy, printer, world with envelope, binocular search, then another toolbar the last icon on it is a camera, that is what you use.

    ah, I got what you mean now. Similiar to what I have done as well, but I usually import the pic into PS or similiar and touch it up first.

    When you open an Adobe file you'll see across the upper screen your menu/tool bar a camera icon. Click the camera icon and then draw a square around your picture that you want to take. When you release the mouse button to finish drawing the square around the object you'll hear a click and see the picture go black and white like a flash in a camera. You just took a picture of everything inside your square. Then you can go into Visio and paste that picture in a stencil. I've got a bit of my own library and there are some steps to take to make sure you create your own and don't use it and have it reference parts and what not but I don't remember the steps offhand. However what Joey said about the camera works great and I use it all the time now to create my own stencils.
