hello,

this is just a comment post and not a question.

i wrote about a month ago about a problem i was having with not
being able to assign multiple names to the same net.  although
this sounds like an unreasonable, unnecessary, and dubious
practice, it was actually the result of a simple attempt to redraw
a non-protel schematic into protel.

i had the connectors all on the last page, and i used global nets
to connect them to the other pages.  well, on page 1 there were
several pins tied to ground.  when i tied several of the global nets
that represented these pins to ground, i noticed in the netlist that
all were deleted but one.  the reason is that you can only have 
one name assigned per net.

it was suggested that i just attach them as non-schematic com-
ponents, but i feared complications from this approach.  

what i'm thinking about doing is dispensing with the connectors on
the last page, making the connectors into multi-part components
with each pin as a part, and doing it that way.  its a trade-off really.
a component with a hundred parts is something of a mess.  the
alternative was to break from the older schematic's layout and just
tie those pins to ground on the final page of connectors.

thank you, miker
