    I have a level shifter IC and 2 headers on a board..

    So in the schematic I have a header with different port names for each
    pins. On the IC, Id like to connect to these header pins without
    drawing wires all over the place, so I created a port name to a wire
    going to the IC that matches the port pin that I wish to connect of
    the header.

    This doesnt seem to work, when I compile I get "multiple input"
    errors.

    How can I do this? All the signals will come from the header, go to
    the IC, and from the IC to another header.
    What am I doing wrong??

    2way of reverse eng need of 3th way

    2way of reverse eng need of 3th way

    I'm working as reverse eng. using altium summer 08
    after placing commponends
    to define nets you can
    1.make schematic and wire and update them to pcb
    or
    2.on pcb editor after placing components it's possible to change,add or remove nets
    using design -> netlist -> edit nets
    but both of them need too much time
    you can get report of nets like below by
    design -> netlist -> export netlist from pcb

    )
    the quastion is :
    is there any way able us to type nets like or similar to upper text.
    and define my nets to the altium by that text.
    whats your idea?
    have a nice time.
