Been using KiCad for 4+ years now, love it, use it professionally and personally for doing some pretty complex board designs. Came from gEDA originally. The new features I see now so far outpower gEDA it’s not even funny.
But, there’s one feature that gEDA/PCB has that I am hoping gets implemented some day, that I still haven’t seen anywhere - Quick hiding / toggling invisibility of items like reference designators, values, and user fields on the silkscreen layers. Right now if I want a bunch of values (or not have the values), I can’t force hidden layers visible and simply hotkey the item visible. I have to select, edit, toggle visibility (or, worse, select footprint, edit the field, then toggle visibility). Having a hotkey (I would personally use ‘h’) to just hover over a refdes/value and simply have it toggle the visibility (and if you don’t have hidden layers visible, it would just up and dissapear).
I am hopeful I’ll see this some day Thanks for all the work devs!
