We use Viewlogic to draw our schematics. One thing that
I did not see mentioned is what platform your HSPICE runs
on. Both our Viewlogic and HSPICE runs on HP (UNIX) workstations.

Your topic was brought up about 1-2 years ago. Back then
I think I also mentioned that a free tool called 'SPICECAD'
was designed specifically for spice or spice-like circuit
schematics. SPICECAD runs on SUN and PC-linux. SPICECAD
doesn't have all the bells and whistles and I found it to
crash often until you get better experience with the tool.
But I think SPICECAD was, in many respects, better designed
to incorporate very powerful features for the experienced
