PCB layout: Using 5-1-7
By default, when I select and edit a component, I can see that the Component Reference is set as visible, and is on the Front SilkScreen layer. The Component Value is also set as visible and is on the Front Fab layer.
Out of editting, with the component still selected, both Component Reference and Component Value are showing on the screen, as expected.
If I then select another component, whilst the Component Reference still shows on the screen, the Component Value is now NOT showing. (Yes, I do have the Front Fab layer displaying). I have tried moving it to other layers (eg Front & Back Silk Screen) and is STILL not showing.
If I add a new value to the component, it will display correctly.
(Don’t know if it matters, but this is a PCB imported from ver 4: I have completely re-mapped the footprints to things in the ver 5 libraries, and have updated the PCB, same effect if I go via a netlist or direct from scematic)
Am I missing something here?
