You are one click away! For some reason PADS doesn't update the netname until AFTER the Net Properties dialog closes. This means the old name shows up unitl you close the dialog. After that the new name appears (by magic!).
OK, I'm stumped, new to LOGIC, familiar with OrCad.
A net shows the net name in Net Properties but the check box to show net name is greyed out.
How can I make it show the name???
edit: NEVER MIND, I FOUND IT, IT WAS SHOWING, JUST ABOUT 4 INCHES AWAY FLOATING IN SPACE.
