I'm having problems with adding/naming Vias. I select the "Add via", then "by geometry", specify it's geometry and put (click) it over an existing net. The problem however is, that the Via isn't connected to the net. The attribute window says it's net is _NULL.
I acquired the property value with:
and it returned _NULL as expected, however the counterpart command
>dbSet selected.net.name desired_name
returned "Attribute 'name' of object 'net' does not have set permission .....", which makes sense, sinse the attribute window didn't allow the change either.
The question therefore is how to tell a VIA that it belongs to a particular net, apart by crossing nets orthogonally?
