[PCB_FORUM] Re: Shorting two or more nets together

NET_SHORT property can only be applied to a pin, a shape, or a via.  So to
work around the DRC issue I change the cline to a shape.  Net shorts are
typically used on power and ground nets so converting them to shapes is a
non issue.  If you need it to remain as a cline, then create an extended
shape then tie a cline to it.

Best regards,
