In the process of moving some stuff around, some nets off of a bus got disconnected.
Restoring the connections result in the old style (diamond shaped) bus ripper symbol pointing in the wrong direction. They do re-connect, but it looks stupid.
Attempts to flip the symbol only result in other weirdness like stubs extending out in the wrong direction. When I pull the stub back to the net the bus ripper symbol points in the wrong direction again.
Not to be deterred, I deleted the nets intending to re-rip them. When I select bus and then "rip nets" I end up with an error message:
"Nets can't be ripped from a non-orthogonal segment."
I wasn't able to locate a good definition of that statement.
Any advice / hints appreciated,
You have probably got a disjoint in the bus segment and will have to redraw it, it sounds like you may have the bus off grid, is your grid displayed? If not then the grid snapping is also switched off. You can snap the bus back on grid with the 'Snap to grid' command/button (Format - Snap to Grid menu pick).
