Jean-Pierre, I believe I know what happened, it was to some degree a problem with mixing eeschema versions between different engineers working on the same project. Two of the sheets were developed separately, one root containing one child sheet. We then added that root sheet to another schematic as a child sheet. The name of the child sheet that had been the root was changed. One of the nets that contained several erroneously merged nets had the same name as the previous root schematic. I believe at some point in time one of the schematics was manually edited and some of the sheet timestamps had been removed. Interestingly enough, eeschema still rendered the schematics correctly. I guess the only complaint I have is the lack of verbose diagnostics in the schematic to netlist conversion. I had to find the errors in PCB, emitters and collectors of transistors being shorted together and the like.
Thanks for your consideration and timely response. --- In firstname.lastname@example.org, jean-pierre charras <jean- [EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > daystar1013 a écrit : > > > > The new format for eeschema appears to be causing problems with local > > labels, global labels, and the new hierarchical label when generating > > netlists. > > I am working with a schematic that several people have been working on. > > It has a root sheet, a sheet inside the root and another one in the > > second level sheet. > > When the netlist was generated nets were merged for no apparent reason > > and given names that were not specified on any net.
