I'm new to LaTex in general, having discovered it in my search for a way to produce circuit diagrams, and therefore have arrived via CircuiTikZ and TikZ. So far, I'm loving it!
Unfortuantely, due to my lack of experience, I am unsure which features I am using / needing belong to TeX in general, TikZ or are unique to CircuiTikZ, which makes it very hard to find tutorials or examples of what I am trying to do!
Anyway, I have discovered the
($(Nor.out)+(1,0)$) notation that allows me to locate a point relative to an anchor on an object, but I was wondering if I can split this reference up for X and Y co-ordinates?
Say, for example, I have two lines that cross, one horizontal and one verical. I want to use the crossing object at the intersection. I therefore need to reference the X co-ordinate using the anchor at one end of the vertical line, and the Y co-ordinate using an anchor at one end of the horizontal.
So, in this case:
The crossing (circled in red) would need to get it's Y Co-Ordinate from the output of the gate NOR1 and it's X Co-Ordinate from the top of the capacitor C1.
Kind of related to this, can I specify one co-ordinate using relative and the other using absolute referencing? Say, I want to place an object that is vertically aligned with an anchor on a second object, but at an absolute position horizontally. (Say, a connector that is on the left of my diagram, but in line with a partcular anchor somewhere to it's right.)
I'm not sure if I'm explaining myself properly, so please let me know if I need to clarify.
