Hi everyone I've done a fair bit of googling but please let me know if this question is a duplicate or answered in altium design documents. I have a hierarchical design and I needed to separate two sections of a circuit that have a lot of nets connected between them, as you can see. wires between schematic sheets

Altium in its infinite wisdom appears to have named all of these nets N000-1 by default.

enter image description here

Now, so far I've been going around this issue by adding net labels, and maybe that's what I should do, but it seems a bit tedious and redundant. Is that the only solution to this? This issue hasn't come up for me when I'm wiring schematic symbols together, just when I'm wiring together sheet entries from ports as shown. I'm pretty new to this top level hierarchy stuff. Thanks for any help.

I found a similar question, but the consensus was that this one was caused by poor choice of net names and the way they were wired together. As far as I can tell, this doesn't apply to my question. Altium Hierarchical design error

    \$\begingroup\$ Did you configure your project to be hierachical in the project options? If yes, try to allow "ports to name net" \$\endgroup\$ – schwdk Jan 16 at 19:09
