When in drawing edit mode, the NAME command is used to display or edit the name of the selected element, signal, net, or bus.
The old_name new_name syntax can be used only inside a board to rename an element.
When in library edit mode, the NAME command is used to display or edit the name of the selected pad, smd, pin or gate.
EAGLE generates names automatically: E$.. for elements, S$.. for signals, P$.. for pads, pins and smds. In general, it is convenient to substitute commonly used names (e.g. 1...14 for a 14-pin dual inline package) in place of these automatically generated names.
If nets or buses are to be renamed, the program has to distinguish between three cases because they can consist of several segments placed on different sheets. Thus a menu will ask the user:
Every segment on this sheet
All segments on all sheets
These questions appear in a popup menu if necessary and can be answered either by selecting the appropriate item with the mouse or by pressing the appropriate hot key (T, E, A).
