How can I set the default font/size for designators on a board layout? Or can I change all designator strings in one command?
Thanks for any help,
The way to do it is to select all the designators.
You can right click and choose Find Similar Objects and by that filtering out the designators. Keep the checkbox next to Run Inspector checked. After you click OK you will get to the Inspector Panel where you can do the change. Just enter new values and press enter.
Thank you I will do this next time.
But seriously, you can't set a new default value?
The system parameter Designator can't be changed at the moment. One option for you would be to use special strings.
You can put the string '.Designator' on a mechanical layer within the footprint, and by that you can pick your own font. This will be displayed on the PCB as the components designator. It will be located on a mechanical layer.
Remember to press L and configure the View Options tab, check the box "Convert Special Strings".
Now on PCB 2019 and is changing the object (schematic) font globally still not available?
