Step 1: import the schematics

Our schematics is coming from a tEDAx netlist, which is a bit more than just a list of networks: it also contains information about footprints and device attributes.

Start with an empty board and import the schematics information from 7805.tdx using the File menu, Import submenu, Import tEDAx schematics submenu.

All subcircuits and networks should be loaded.

Step 2: disperse

However, the subcircuits are placed randomly. There are many different strategies to resolve this:

Step 3 on: lay out the board

Once subcircuits are placed, press {c r} and the nets are shown with rat lines. From this point, please follow the no-sch tutorial from step 5.
