I’m nearly done with my first layout with KiCad. Many thanks to all contibutors for this valuable piece of software!
However, currently I am setting up the manufacturer data. All components have a designator on the silkscreen layer. Now I would like to hide/delete/… all designators (nearly all, I would like to keep the J* and TP* designators for example).
I figured out that I can do this for every component individually (‘E’ over the designator, disable visibility) - this is quite time consuming due to 200+ components on my board. Another approach seems to be to manipulate the footprints in the library in order to replace all of the footprints in the board - but I would like to avoid this.
My second attempt was to search for appropriate Python script but can’t find any for silkscreen manipulations. After studying the Python API I’m even not sure if it is possible to have access to the silkcreen items (I must be wrong)…
Is there a simple solution for my problem?
