Symbol Editor duplicate pin names

Postby ideaman4u » Mon May 14, 2012 9:30 am

I have a component (actually a module) that has several ground connections. When I try to use the same name more than once, I get a popup window telling me this is not recommended butis allowed. However, the Editor will not allow me to use the duplicate name and defaults to the (next) default name.

Look to the bottom left corner of the symbol panel and select the pins tab. You can use duplicate pin names here. This is a known issue and has already been reported.
