I have a design where I added a wire between two components, then gave a name to the net. But the name isn't displayed, and I can't find where to enable this.

This is the latest version of DT. There must be something really obvious I'm missing, but I can't find it on the menus or in the help file.

HELP!

Are you referring to the Schematic tool or the PCB Layout tool?

In either case, you can click on the icon that looks like a trace in the Design Manager toolbar to see a list of net names. You can click on one of those names to see the associated connections highlighted.

In a schematic you can right-click a line and choose Display Name.

Are any of those what you are asking about?

This is a schematic.

Thanks - 'Display Name' did the trick. I was trying to enable display by opening the net properties dialog.

Do you know how to enable 'Display Names' for nets as the default. I always want to see my net names, so it would be nice to have this.

I not think you want that. :D

Because, if you move the net (line), the name not follow.
You must first move the line AND then the name. :roll:
