| I'm designing a PCB for someone else and have a situation that would never come up in my own designs.
The client wants star grounding, but has named all the star paths as different nets.
I can't just join them together, as far as I know, without them becoming a single net, so I thought I'd make a small dummy component with 2 SM pins and copper between them.
This solves the net joining problem, but obviously creates a large number of DRC errors, because everything is very close together.
I can "Accept" these errors, but the text clutters up the PCB and makes it ugly and hard to see exactly what's going on.
1/ Have I missed a way to join nets while keeping them as separate names?
2/ Is there a way to hide accepted errors?
Alternatively, does anyone have another suggestion on how to work around this in a clean way?
