I drew the little ASCII-art electronics schema below in vim.
When i try to paste it into a Mathematica notebook, with:
A) A code cell
B) A monospaced font (Courier New)
Mathematica insists on destroying the vertical aligment.
Here is what it looks like in vim:
And here's what it looks like in Mathematica:
Even worse, when I try to re-align things by hand in the notebook, the end result looks very bad (note the misaligned vertical bars on the right hand side)
For something so simple to be so hard ... I must
be missing something glaringly obvious.
Help would be very much appreciated.
