Issue Details

I have a custom ground net in my Multism schematic, how do I link a ground symbol to this net?

Solution

Place a DGND in the net and set the RefDes to GND.
  1. Select DGND (Master Database > Sources > POWER_SOURCES) in the component selector and place it in the desired net. 
  2. Double click on the symbol, on the Digital Ground dialog box, rename RefDes to GND.

Additional Information

The Ground (GND) symbol cannot be assigned to another net, as it is considered as universal for SPICE simulation purposes. Additional grounds can be used in a design by using DGND symbols.

To see to which net a ground is linked to, and click on the Pins tab on the Digital Ground dialog Box.
