    What does the error "GetFlatNet failed" means and how can i correct it?




      I am getting this error when packaging my design:


      ERROR: GetFlatNet failed for net "GND_SMA" connected  to pin "GND4" on symbol "$1I1688"
      Symbol  path is Board!SHEETNAME, Symbol UID is (1837, 65, 8)


      I am using hierarchical design and I guess this is an issue that appears when DxDesigner tries to flatten the design.

      If I remove the net, there is no more error (but no more net either!). As soon as I draw a net, the error comes back.

      The only solution I have found so far is to create a dummy hierarchical port on my block and connect the net to this port. However, this is not a good solution as dummy ports can be confusing.


      Do you have any idea why I have this error and what I can do to properly get rid of it?


      Thank you,
