    Bug - changing line width in a footprint Reply

    Hi all,

    I tried to change the line width in a footprint with PCB Designer but it does not take this change into account as a real modification and so, it so not allowed to save after doing it. The user must have to draw anything else in the .dra and delete it, then he is finally able to savethe file.

    The width of a line can be changed with Edit>Change, select Line Width in Options and specify the required width and select the lines to change, right-click>Done to accept changes or Cancel to reject them. The width of a boundary, like a rectangle, cannot be changed with this method, you need to decompose the rectangle to lines and then change the width of the lines.

     Hi Olmouldy and thank you for your reply.

     I used to run the change width command by clicking on it in contextual menu, so I tried your method with which I change the text blocks.

    It works, many thanks.
