Can't print added text?

#1 Post by G0ECI » 07 Jun 2017, 10:40

Hi there ...

I've added some text to a schematic drawing - not in the title block. Just a few labels etc.

The weird thing is, when I click on 'preview' from the drop down (File...Preview), my added text is not visible and consequently does not print out. :?

The schematic - wires, junctions, components with ReFDes and component values print out just fine?

Would anyone kindly conform this on their platform and advise back OR am I missing an obvious "doHH" ?

Thanks ...

I have the same problem. Added text does not show up on my boards.

If the text color is set to "White" I've found that it doesn't display in print preview. Setting the text color to "Black" (or almost any other color) will correct the issue.

To change the text color:
- Right click on the text
- Select "Font..." from the context menu
- In the drop down field under "Color:," select another color
