Hierarchical Pins Disconnected?


#1

Hi, I have a multi-channel schematic that I’m working on, and I’m wondering if what I’m seeing is normal behavior? I want to connect a net to the hierarchical pin that is imported from the sheet. From what it looks like, the net isn’t actually connecting to the pin, as I still see the little square by the pin, as seen in the first photo below. If I route a wire to the pin and click on the pin, the wire tool doesn’t actually terminate the wire either, I have to double click to end the wire.

I want to make sure that I’m actually connecting these in the netlist. What’s weird too is if I move the pin to the other side of the sheet symbol then it connects just fine and the little square goes away. (I can’t upload that image as I can apparently only place one image in a post as a new user)

Is this expected behavior? Thanks for your help!

It could be a grid issue. Try with a different grid. There are not so many, so I’d rather start with the next one. If current grid is 100, try 50 and so on.

Agree with pedro.

I’d select 100 grid and move and/or resize the sheet. This will tend to put symbols back on the grid.

Thanks guys, I’m currently at a 50mil grid, so I went down to 25mils and still couldn’t get them to connect after moving them around a bit. I ended up just deleting and recreating the sheets and re-placing the pins. That did the trick.
