I have a circuit that i need to reuse in my design, i need to have 6 of the same circuit in my scheme and pcb. what is the right way to do it? for example: ![image.png](//image.easyeda.com/pullimage/Zf5n4oA2xlsJdIdsKcKFbWvBy5peOYU1vpS1pKyW.png)

It's a bit clunky but this works: 1. Save the schematic section as a Schematic Module. 2. Save the PCB section as a PCB Module. 3. Place each in their respective files. * Despite everything we say about netnames helping the readability, accuracy and debugging of the schematic and PCB: do **not** put any netnames on either the schematic or PCB modules. This avoid cross connection hell when you place more than one of each module. You can add netnames after placing the modules on the schematic and PCB.

Hey, thanks for your reply ive created the modules (pcb and schematic), i place a schematic module in my current schematic, and place the pcb module in my current pcb. but when i press update pcb (or import changes) it seperates the components from the tracks. any idea whats going on? ![image.png](//image.easyeda.com/pullimage/uKF67MkAguNL9RpYhXildtmqaphDxJ7zt60XNYBm.png)

Once one or more modules have been placed in the schematic, I think you will have to manually update the netnames: 1. in the schematic to give them easily recognisable names (but this step is probably optional);  2. in the net names of the respective module sections that you placed in the PCB to match their corresponding module sections in the Schematic. See also: [https://docs.easyeda.com/en/Schematic/Schematic-Modules/index.html](https://docs.easyeda.com/en/Schematic/Schematic-Modules/index.html) [https://docs.easyeda.com/en/PCB/PCB-Modules/index.html](https://docs.easyeda.com/en/PCB/PCB-Modules/index.html) I have not used modules so you may have to contact support if this doesn't fix it.

@andyfierman you mean to name all the nets in the schematic and the pcb? thats alot of work, concidering i need few of those circuits there must be a better way how do i contact support? couldnt find it

Hi people, I have created an EasyEDA Extension to allow reuse and multiple instantiation of schematic and PCB modules! Code and instructions are [here](https://github.com/ppeetteerrs/EasyEDA-Tools)!
