Duplicate Bus Names?

#1 Post by Brent » 30 May 2019, 21:54

Whenever I add a connection (wire) from a new component pin to a bus, and choose the "3.3Vdc (global)" name from the list, it seems to work, but creates a duplicate name in the bus with only that single pin connected!

What causes this?

I can manually get Properties on that wire, then re-map "By Name" and it fixes it. But this must be done every time a new connection is made to that bus.

Is DipTrace confused? Why would it allow, let alone quietly *create* duplicate net names?

When you add a wire to bus you can either create new net or select one of existing nets from the bus. It is not possible to select existing net that is outside of the bus.
if you have different case please send the schematic to DipTrace support.
