    I'm using Eagle CAD 7.7.0 on a Mac and wonder what the best way to connect multiple pins together between two or more ICs without creating a total mess or using hours to complete it?
    For instance, in the schematic below I'd like to connect together the same address pins (A0 to A0, A1 to A1 etc.) and other pins (power etc.)

    You could just show the pins connected to an on-sheet reference. A1, A2, ... And then you dont need to show the individual connections.

    Alternatively, if eagle supports it, there may be a bus wiring structure that shows the entire bus as a (typically thick) line, with the individual connections peeling off at each connection.
