Different nets with the same name are not allowed in DipTrace even though these nets are bounded within different hierarchical sheets. You can add a suffix or index in net names so that net names on different sheets will be different but still similar.

Importing Eagle files using ULPs is outdated method. We suggest to use native import of Eagle files in XML format in the latest version of DipTrace.
The problem may be caused by graphics mode in Pattern Editor. It uses the same mode as PCB Layout but a wrong value may be written to registry somehow. Please start PCB Layout and change graphics mode in "View -> Graphics Mode". Close PCB Layout and restart Pattern Editor. Try 3D preview in Pattern ...
Check net connectivity checks real connections regardless of visibility of layers or objects. If check net connectivity reports no short circuits and no missing connections you should trust it. But DRC and check net connectivity verify different things therefore you should run both of them.
