I was moving a project from the old stable 2013 version to new V 4.06, but after associating the .cmp file with the schematic using the BACK button, I am stuck with visible component fields.
After updating the components with CvPcb, the original .cmp file overwrites the new .cmp associations if the BACK button is used, so eventually I renamed the .cmp file and re-associated the fields with CvPcb.
Now I have perfect association of components, PCB and BOM, but visible component footprint fields on the schematic that make it difficult to read.
The BACK button on the menu no longer offers the option to “Hide footprint fields” as there is no .cmp file produced by the new version of CvPcb and I have disabled the original as it wipes the new associations, so the button does nothing.
I can change the field colour to white, but that leaves the remains of the field over some components as dotted lines.
Is there any global way to hide the footprint fields, or do I have to edit every one and set to “invisible”?
