I am in the process of building my first project with more than a few components. One hour of using the Schematic Editor consists of five minutes designing the actual circuit and 55 minutes fixing problems introduced by the Schematic Editor.
There are a number of problems but the worst is the fact that most times when I connect more than two things together I get a red dot and a constraint violation saying “Overlapping Net Point.” The only way I have found to fix this is to delete all of the net links anywhere near it and try again. If the dot is sitting directly on a component pin then it is hit and miss whether the dot is deleted or the component.
I have just created one simple trace which resulted in eight distinctive Overlapping Net Point errors. For the last hour I have actually made negative progress. I have a pretty good monitor and mouse and do not have the shakes - yet.
It was reported as a bug over three years ago but there was no response to that post.
Is there any solution to this problem?
Thanks in advance,
