Dxdesigner global ground issue

I'm having trouble connecting GND net across Hierarchy blocks. I'm currently using special component:gound to make every GND global (from the nets' properties they shows up as Italic) I attached an example below. However when I forward to PCB into pads layout, only the top level GND net is there, the others are unconnected.


I also tried to add a ground port into the blocks and connect them together, it doesn't work as well. What am I missing?


I'm using PADS ES suite (PADS 9.5 with Dxdesigner and pads layout).
