Re: [sch] BUS with different signal names

I think that limitation on the bus where you have to have nets
with the same prefix is ilogical. Bus consist from data lines
(Data[1..n]) and from control lines (ALE,WE,...). Some buses,
like SPI or i2c have no paralel data lines so bus tool is usseles
in this case. Maybee you should have an option where you could
select if you have BUS with arbitrary net names or classical net
names (like now).

Hi Rok,

This sounds like an enhancement request worth remembering. It might get more attention long term if you added it to the enhancement request list, see the wiki for the URL.

That is, unless I mis-understood, and you were proposing an idea that you intended to code up, and wanted to discuss it here on the development list before coding it.
