I am making a circuit, but it is very complex which makes it difficult to understand. How do I shrink it down?

You can reduce it with sub-circuits which make the circuit smaller. To make a sub-circuit just create a new folder in the project and make the circuit that you need, for example if you want to make a 4-bit binary to decimal decoder make a new folder in the project calling it for example: "4-bit decoder", when you create your sub-circuit you only have to use the first input and output keys and if necessary number them by pressing on them and going under label and then write what you need, so you can understand it better when it will be a sub-circuit. Once you're done you'll have to go to the main circuit you want to make and press right mouse button and that's how the "insert sub-circuit" option will appear at which point you press it and select the circuit you need in this example case it will be: "4-bit decoder" and that's how you'll insert the sub-circuit. If you want to look at an example, search in the project search bar for: "4-Bit subcircuit decoder example".

Hello, you should consider using integrated circuits or pre-built modules that combine multiple functions into a single component. This can help reduce the overall complexity of the circuit by replacing multiple discrete components with a single integrated solution. Integrated circuits and modules are designed to perform specific functions and can simplify the circuit design process.

If you have a complex circuit that is difficult to understand, there are a few techniques you can use to simplify and shrink it down: Modularization: Break down the circuit into smaller, more manageable modules or sub-circuits. Identify the primary functions or blocks of the circuit (e.g., power supply, amplifier, sensor, etc.) and isolate them. This makes the overall circuit easier to understand, troubleshoot, and maintain. slope
