Whats the best software for building wiring diagrams?

looking for something a bit better than paint.net for building nice looking wiring diagrams like the ones seen on the Docs site
I default to Adobe Illustrator because its what I have... For "smart" alignment and snapping, I imagine Figma would actually work pretty well. Runs from a browser and can even do collaboration. Free for light work!
Maybe Fritzing, it has been used for years by the Arduino community, including the official site/forum.
Personally, I was using inkscape to make diagrams for hartk's afterburner toolhead PCBs. I'd experimenting with highlighting networks on mouse over too, to make finding connections easier.
I really *want* Fritzing to be the answer, but at least as of the last time I looked at it, it really wasn't: too hard to make new devices in it.
Still using markdown, via vscode or typora.
If I need diagrams I use draw.io or inkscape
+1 on draw.io and since I happen to own a license: Illustrator - dont purchase it only for wire diagramms, draw.io is more than up to the task
I use Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe InDesign. Which ever one makes sense for the wiring diagrams I do for myself or the communityInterface Cable Diagram.jpg
