Global settings

Hello everyone,

I have started my first simple project with KiCAD. I have a couple of questions to see if there are global settings for what I want to do.

I would like to add custom fields for all parts even in the library. Is it possible to do that in KiCAD? Or should I just make my own part library?

Also, I noticed that when I started work on the PCB, the values of the components are displayed. Is there a way to turn this off globally?

Do not modify existing Library parts. If you reinstall KiCad, chances are your customized parts will become overwritten. Create your private library, copy original parts and make modification to your copies.
You can disable displaying the values on the Objects tab of Appearance panel.
