I found a bug in the way the shield of a cable reports on wiring diagrams. For some reason if the wire coming off the shield is a straight one segment wire the color of the wire that has the shielded cable symbol reports instead of SHLD. However if there is a jog or multiple segments to the wire it reports SHLD as it should. I’ve attached a screenshot of the behavior for clarification. I am using the following code for wire annotation “%L(%2)%V(%H)”.
There are shield connections on both ends the termdesc attribute is just hidden by default (it makes no difference if it's visible) on the parent symbol. The child symbols do seam to work ok but it's an obvious bug with the parent symbols.
