Thanks Rene. I'm using the default font, and currently I don't know how to change that. I like the default font, so that isn't a big issue.
I'm trying to fit text between the pads on 0805 SMDs. I normally use 0.5mm x 0.5mm with a thickness of 0.13. KiCad clamps this to 0.125, which is a hair too small.
I completely understand why they do this, however, I am confident these values work for me and my boardhouse, as I've been using this sizing for years using FreePCB.
In my previous program I could set a minimum stroke width that would take effect when plotting out the gerber files. This would be ideal.
Thanks for your help.
