Re: What happened to buses in eeschema?


Hi Brian,

Since your build version doesn't include a git commit, I have no idea how
recent a build you are running, but I think you are hitting one of the
eeschema internal units change bugs that was present for a day or two but
then resolved.  Bus entries were briefly very very small.

The rules for how buses and nets work have been updated to support the new
bus features.
If you provide screenshots or an example project, I can give more insight
into the ERC warnings you are getting.
