4.0.7 in Ubuntu 16.04. In the layout I have changed the value field in a few footprints to be visible in back silk. I look at the result in plot; pdf. The values do not show in the pdf. In pcbnew the text of the value is only visible if both value and bsilk is marked.
The dialog indicates to me that I have said to make the value a bsilk visible item. My problem is that most of similar footprints do not require a silk screen value; only a few do. I can do it manually, but the facility for what I want seems to be included. Is this a bug or am I not making the correct choices?
