Hello,

Just got several statements like this as errors in the ERC:

"Segment of net /BLUE has fallen apart"

Yet those sections (two each) connect correctly and when clicked on are
still labeled correctly. And on the real product the blue LED lights
correctly :-)

It's Eagle 7.2. What gives? Is this a bug?

There seems to be a net that seems to consist of two segments but
should be only one segment. This is an tricky error message that
shouldn't occur...

To check this cold you ├╝please send the schematic file?

A solution could be to connect the two net segments in the schematic
and delete the connection again. But to be sure, we should look into
the file.

I always farm out layouts and most are done in PADS. The netlist was
correct and the boards are in series production.

I just sent it off to you and wrote the email in German so I don't
become rusty :-)

In this case it could somehow be done but on more busy schematics where
that would require dozens of additional lines it isn't practical.

Hallo zusammen,

what has been the solution? I got this problem already and ignored it. Meanwhile I have at least 5 different designs with that error message, it may be time to have a solid solution?

Best regards,
Andreas
