    Altium Designer: Back annotation (update schematic with net changes from PCB)

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to seek advice on the proper way to doing back annotation with Altium Designer.
    What is the proper way to update a schematic from PCB with net name changes?

    Hi,

    Tools/Re-annotate
    In PCB Editor
    Design/update schematics go to schematics compile it.

    Again In Schematic Editor

    Re: Altium Designer: Back annotation (update schematic with net changes from PCB)

    I am getting 0kb .WAS file generated from the Re-annotate command execution.
    It won't allow me to back annotate the schematic. Is there a missing setup?
