# How to create tag type of label in Cad Eagle? [duplicate]

I can't get my copy of cad eagle to create tag type of label for a wire or a net. Instead I get simple text type of label. GND label is what I am trying to get.

I have tried turning xref on and off, and changing size or font. In the end, all I get is simple plain text label. So, how do I get the fancy tag type of label?

• @David That is exactly what I am doing. I have selected the pretty arrow, same size, ratio, and font, yet I get simple text label. – jM2.me Apr 30 '14 at 17:56
• Then you are either doing it wrong or you've found a bug. Ensure you are choosing the options from the linked post. If you are, record your steps (video or screenshots) and report it to Cadsoft. – David Apr 30 '14 at 17:58

• Yes - looks like it to me. Report it to Cadsoft. – David Apr 30 '14 at 18:53

But remember that if you want to have similar pins (on the same net) connected, you must use the Name command for every particular net segment! Placing this component on a wire doesn't tell EAGLE to connect those wires!
