I have a complicated guard ring of sorts that surrounds a network of pads and traces. This guard ring is/was connected to the GND net. I had to make so changed and reload the net list. As a result the guard ring traces were orphaned and no were longer marked with the GND net. As a result, the router will not allow me reconnect the trace ring to GND. There would be considerable work to redraw all these traces.
Is there a way to apply a net to an unconnected net of traces that is not part of an existing net?
The red circle in the image below indicate where I am trying to create a connection between the net with no name around the pads on Col7 and the GND net around Col8.
