I would like to know how to connect two nets with different names in a schematic...is there a special "Net Tie" symbol? How is this imported to the PCB?
You can use a starpoint component this is new VX.2.5 feature : https://support.mentor.com/en/knowledge-base/MG519108?pid=sc%3Asearch&pid_context=starpoint
This only works for Xpedition and this question is about PADS. As it is in the wrong place we will move it
This is covered in supportnet, you can use a | to merge 2 nets together.
But this would be seen in the PCB as a unique net with unique name, is this correct?
Yes, you now have one net.
If you want multiple nets, use a component like a zero ohm resistor to tie the 2 nets together.
