Nets in more than one class?

#1 Post by Exality » 22 Aug 2018, 12:41

I just discovered that a given net can only be assigned to one class. Is that true? I had some nets in various classes I was using to define high voltage clearance, and when I named them in another class for trace/via sizing they were removed from their high voltage classes.

Why can't I put a net in more than one class? This makes it impossible to set different characteristics for a subset of a net class. Is there a way around this?

A net can belong to one net class only. Otherwise different settings from different net classes would conflict with each other.
