Question

How do I adjust the text width of my reference designators so that they aren't a width of zero?


Solution

To change the thickness of the text: 

  1. Select Setup > Design Parameters to open the Design Parameter Editor.

  2. Select the Text tab.

  3. Click the Ellipsis button that is located next "Setup text sizes." The form that opens lists all of the text blocks defined in your board.


The values in the Photo Width column define the aperture used to draw the text in your Gerber files as well as the display width of text on your screen.


Setting the value here changes the display. Click OK to apply and save your updates.
