Unable to Create a Signal in the XNET Database Editor with Previous Name

Issue Details

I deleted a signal in the XNET Database Editor and I am trying to create a new one in the same frame with the same name as the one I just deleted, as is shown in the image below.

However when I do this I get the following message:
Additionally all the settings for all the signals in the frame are deleted. 


This is currently a known issue of NI-XNET and will be addressed in future releases of it.

You can workaround this issue by saving the database and closing the database editor after deleting the signal. After that, you can reopen the database and create without any issue the new signal with the old name.
