Default component designator size?
« on: March 23, 2017, 03:05:46 pm »
Does anybody know how you can set the default width and height for the component designators on the PCB? It defults to 10/60mil which is a bit large for my taste. I have no problem changing the size, part by part, once the component is on the PCB but that's not what I want.

I looked in File->Preferences->PCB Editor but I can't seem to find anything there.

Not sure how to change defaults but its easy to select all of the overlay text and change size:

For example:
In PCB filter select object=text and layer=top overlay
In PCB editor window select all 'filtered' objects by pressing Ctrl-A
All top overlay text is now selected
Now open the Object Inspector - change Text Width / Height properties as you wish.
