So in my PCB I have moved all ref.des. and value fields of my stitching_via footprint way off above the PCB outline. I do this because even though they’re set invisible, they show with a grey color if the correct layer is on.
In this first picture, you can see all ref.des. for all my stiching vias being sown even though they’re “invisible”
The scaling option is set to “Fit to page”, and you can clearly see that the ref.des. or value text is tried fitted, even though it doesn’t show.
Can I make the print-function ignore completely text that is not part of the layer it is printing? I would also wish for, that even though I print F.Silk at some point, I don’t want the “invisible” text to be included then either.
Thanks for reminding me about that option “Show hidden text”! Always thought it was a humorous sounding option, but I see the point of it. All though I would like to see a “Hide visible text” option to accompany it.
Unfortunately, un-checking this option did not fix the print-issue.
I’m not able to select hidden text as a group, both in OpenGL and default. I can however move them individually. When selcting them as a group in “default” rendering I tick all the boxes including the “include items on invisible layers” (even though I know it’s not for hidden text).
Edit: Never mind, I fixed it with text replacing in a text editor
