Creator assigns the pin even though it is not connected to anything.
What you did is similiar to tying an LED to a pin, pin is placed on
schematic, not tied to anything, and handeld with SW APIs to drive
You defined in the schematic a pin. Regardless of the use it is a pin and as such HAS to be connected to a real pin of your underlying chip. You configured the pin correctly as there is no hardware connection to "wires" inside the chip, so the only way is to change the pin's output is to use the Write() function of the pin.
But why doesn't the schematic then show the physical pin it is assigned to? It does so for all the other ones...There should be a '5', but its only showing the cross with the 0 in it.
In the attached picture another pin is not assigned. This is probably caused by screenshots taken at different times and pasted together. An assigned pin wil always show the routed target-port.

Yep, that is exactly what I mean. Besides the fact this is a screenshot from only a part of my diagram, I got this inconsistency several times in differenty diagrams. I know I can only control the PIN from software, thats no the problem here.
Workaround : Remove the PIN and place it again. If someone knows a better workaround (without having to delete and re-setup the pin) I'll be glad to hear it.
I see now what you mean, indeed the attachment was taken at another time.
Update : I still sometimes have the same problem but I think I found an easier workaroud : Clicking LOCK/UNLOCK twice
