Mira, I am not sure which systems you may have used prior to Protel but of the systems that I have used the reactions that you report below are the norm. Putting a net label with the same name on two wires, connects the wires exactly the same as if you drew a wire between them.

Peter, The power ports act something like net labels (but not _exactly_ like net labels - the power nets are always Global, while those created by net labels may be local to a single sheet, depending on how the netlist is generated.) This was good to know. However it changed the global

Yes, I think your point is clear, but we obviously get along quite well without making this mistake. Even if they were not connected by the inclusion of the net name, the name placed in that location is unclear as to which wire it references. Tony Now about the net label placed on top of
