M4 Circuit Macros integration with TeXnicCenter

Postby greenlinux » Tue Sep 14, 2010 7:03 pm


If you are in the field of Electronic Engineering or others which are related you may have used the M4 Circuit Macros which can be found on CTAN. If you live on planet Microsoft, there is quite a lot of messing about with command line stuff in order to generate the diagrams using these macros.

I was hoping to find a method for setting up TeXnicCenter to use these macros without any command line involved as has been done for Kile. The Kile integration method is shown at I am not responsible for this (very good) website.

I couldn't find any instructions on the web to help set up TeXnicCenter in a similar way. After a little frustration, I have managed to do what I want. I thought the process might be useful to others so I have written some notes. They are in PDF form at

I hope they are useful, please ask if there are unclear parts or you find errors.

Best regards,

This is a great solution indeed. I love TeXnicCenter even more now!

Appologies for digging this up but... someone emailed me and asked why doesn't it work in Windows 7 with the new Circuit Macros (ver 7.2)

A revised tutorial is available from: ... ndows7.pdf
