Rename track's net without joining

    Assuming the net name that you wish to name it does not exist it will not join any other net. Right click on the net and select Change Net, ensure the net name does not exist and type the required new net name in box.

    I'm sorry, I haven't explained my situation well. I hope this image better explains what I need.

    DSPCB does not allow a net to have more than one name, so if these tracks are required to be connected they can only share a common name such ADC_CS

    I you want these as two separate tracks, with say a break in the airwire (unrouted track) you can delete that, but the tracks will still have the same name. Select all of the new track by a selection box or ctrl clicking on all the track segments, right click and select Net->Change Net, give the new net name in the box and ensure the "Change name of subnet only" check box is selected. Then the nets will have separate names.

    The first situation mentioned above is also a restriction when you want analog and digital grounds, as soon as you connect them they have one name. This is often got round by using a zero ohm link such as a smd resistor or simple link. In this instance the link can help during debug and testing of the boards. One user posted a solution using a special PCB component with multiple pads that could be placed to allow differing tracks to be connected, I'll see if I saved a copy of the post if that is of interest.

    I don't want the net to have more than one name.

    In my case I have 20 signals ADC_CSxx which all will have exactly same appearance on the PCB. I don't want to manually route 20 copies of the track if there is possibility to route once, then copy and then change the track's net.

    And I finally found the way - I route the track without connecting its ends to pads. That means the track will have net with implicit name Nxxxxx. Then I copy the track. Each copy has unique net with name Nxxxxx so it is not problem to rename that track's net to what I need - ADC_CSxx.

    What is "simple link" - how can I create one?

    Is your question related to the previous discussion topic, I could not see the reference to "simple link". Can you clarify what you want to achieve?
    If it is a new topic please start a new post and I will request the above is removed to avoid confusion.
