How to move field property in layout

Hello to all Kicad users,

I used Kicad about a year ago for a simple project. I recalled I was able to use hotkey “M” to move the field value and reference around.

I recently downloaded 4.0.0 version. I couldn’t move the filed property beside edit the component with Hotkey “E”.

Do they switch the hotkey for filed property?


I had an issue with version 4.0.0 and couldn’t move reference designators in the layout. Once I installed R6301 for Windows 32bit from the recent builds it’s now working.
