I have been using KiCAD for about 2 years. I have gotten used to the workflow, except for some features, including the alignment of fields around symbols. I still haven’t figured out how to tweak the default alignment of the fields the way I want it. If I’m not mistaken, I have to either manually align the fields individually or customize the symbol templates to allow for a custom look. However, I see that even the template itself changes once I insert the symbol in the schematic.
I come across quite often on the internet very neatly drawn schematics in KiCAD. With the thought of having to offset the fields for each component, I finally give up on the idea in my own drawings.
I wonder if I might be overlooking some feature that allows the default settings for all symbols to be easily changed globally.
I don’t like how this option works.
The best for me would be if when the option is unchecked (no automatic fields placement) it would be walid only until you rotate symbol (not first symbol in session but each symbol independently).
