    Ground "pins" on connectors

    ian.hodnett

      We use a single pin symbol for our multi-way connectors and assign them to slots (see below).

      If the connector has ground tabs, we used to name them A, B, C etc (in Board Station) to distiguish them frm signal pins.

       

      In EE, we'd obviously like to assign A, B, C etc to the supply (see below):

      In the schematic, joined thus (all pins placed but not shown in this snap shot):

      When we run package, we get this error:

      Any ideas / help / solutions ??
