1.5 Foundation Schematic/Simulator: Simulator does not update when wire being simulated is changed to a different wire.


Keywords: Simulator, change, wires, probes

Urgency: standard

General Description:
When one changes the name of the wire stub (i.e. from Q3 -> Q4)
on the schematic, the simulation probe still refers to the old value (Q3).
This is seen even when reloading the simulator.



Delete all wire stubs attached to the entity in question and
create new ones.


A workaround is to replace the probe on the schematic.

On the schematic find the gray square probe mark and remove
it (click on it with the probe tool). Then use the probe tool
to replace the probe on the wire that is now to be simulated.
