I have an analog and a digital ground plane that need to be connected at one point. I created a two-pad component with a short in between. However this still gives a connectivity error. Is there a better way?

Zero Ohm resistor or ferrite bead could be the better way. At least, they can connect two grounds and don't cause errors.

Yes, that would work. I was trying to avoid an extra assembly step or component. I'll live with the meaningless error.

Thanks.
