Power Port reduced to Local level warning

Created: March 25, 2021 | Updated: February 25, 2022

I get a warning when I compile my project schematics: "Global Power-Object ... has been reduced to local level by presence of port at ..." It is a Warning in the Message panel after validating the project.

Starting in Version: 18.0
Up to Version: Current

Solution Details

Power Ports are global (unless separately set in the Net Identifier scope within the project options) and do not require a connection to an extra defined port to connect to another Schematic document. When a Global power port is connected to a local Port, it reduces the Power Port to a local presence. The solution is to remove the connection between the Power Port and a local Port.
