hello, i didnt find an efficient way to rename a NET. if i want to do so, i have to go to every individual components on that net and rename it. is there a faster way to do so in the PCB view ? thanks, wowi

Hi Wowi, Welcome to EasyEDA. #### To name a net: Press the 'N' key. A dummy 'netlabel?' will appear at the cursor. Click on the net you wish to label. The dummy name be attached to the net and will change to 'netlabel1'. If this is the first net you place: the number suffix of subsequent nets will increment from there. A net label applied anywhere on a net applies the name of that label to the whole of that net. #### To change a net name: Double click on a netlabel, edit the text in the text box that opens then click back on the schematic. The net name is now changed to what you edited the text box to. Subsequent net labels will now have this new name. If the new name has a number suffix then subsequent net labels will have this new name with an incrementing number suffix * **Please note:** https://easyeda.com/forum/topic/Net_naming_conventions-uOHBvN5nh https://easyeda.com/forum/topic/The_best_way_to_design_a_PCB_in_EasyEDA-ThR3pwqIC and https://docs.google.com/document/u/1/d/1OWZVVFRAe_2NW3WratpkA_SGuHa5AcRow5ZRfvcoVTU/pub#h.2jxsxqh

hi andy, the N key only works in schematic, but i am changing my pcb - i know it is not the ideal way to go :) anyway, thank you for the useful links, i am new to pcb design and still have plenty to learn thx and regards, wowi

If you are renaming nets in a PCB which is being created without a shematic then you may be able to reduce the amount of work somewhat by using the H key to highlight the whole net. I am not certain that this will work because I have never built a PCB without starting from a schematic. :) Another option is to copy the EasyEDA Source file into a text editor and use the Search and Replace tool to rename nets. Then paste the edited text back into the EasyEDA Source file dialogue box in the PCB editor. Best keep a backup copy just in case the editing goes awry.

I had the same problem, here is my workaround: Add a piece of track somewhere close to the track/net you want to rename Set a name for new track, in my case it was GND Draw connection **from** new track (GND) **to** old one Accept track merging The whole new track will be renamed to GND Remove the pece of track added.. :)

Hello, I find a solution than work for me. In schematic view, select Net Port in the little Wiring Tools windows. You can put Net Port directly on the Wire of your circuit and, when you import changes in PCB view, NET is automatically update. ;)

It is strange to me that you can see and set net names when you click on a trace on PCB, but not in Schematic.  It should work the same.  When I click on a schematic line, the netname should appear on right, and be editable, like in PCB.  With SPICE this is important, to know net names everywhere. -Dan

In the schematic, net names can be changed from the default names (which are auto-assigned by the netlister at the time the schematic is first constructed) by attaching a net label. The net names assigned to a Schematic are then passed into the PCB when the PCB is first created from that Schematic. If the net names in the PCB are required to be changed then they must first be changed in the schematic and then the PCB updated using **Update PCB...** or **Import Changes...**. Changing net names in the PCB without changing them in the schematic will break the PCB. Cross Probing will fail. Any subsequent **Update PCB...** or **Import Changes...** will overwrite any manual changes made in the PCB. * For more about the use of net names in Simulation please see the Simulation Tutorial.
