I am working on a project with 15 schematic pages and I am wondering how to interconnect a higher density microcontroller with its peripherals without creating too much chaos in the schematic. All pins I would like to connect are either on one page(the function of the local label would be perfect here) or across hierarchical pages. The hierarchical case is easy to draw. But if I need just a local label, I have to do without the rendering of the signal direction. If I use the hierarchical label for an local interconnection the ERC complains and I have ca. 150 ERC errors/warnings because it doesn’t find the hierarchical pin on the schematic in the level above.
The workaround I am using now is to use global labels which A: have a direction and B: don’t cause ERC errors. But even this is not ideal: I am afraid to create unwanted connections across other sheets.
Do you have a hint how I can:
A: prevent ERC errors/warnings for hierarchical labels if there are no corresponding hierarchical pins or
B: get a direction symbol for my local label or
C: make a global label local?
thank you very much about your opinions and hints.
