    Resize Reference Designators in PCB Design L? Reply

     Is there a way to resize the reference designators in PCB Design L?  Text is easily resized in the schematic using F8 and F9 but I'm unable to find a corresponding function in the PCB editor.

     Text sizes can be changed in the Setup->Design Parameters menu, then under the "Text" tab.  Click on the "..."  (Setup Text Sizes) button.  Change the appropriate text type to the size you want.

     Thank you for the suggestions.  Changing the design parameters didn't affect the existing text.  Edit > Change worked after clicking Text Block in the option panel.

    You may have already thought to try this, but you can turn on only the subclass containing the ref des, enter Edit > Change and adjust the parameters, then draw a box around all ref des elements. That way, you can change all existing ref des items at once.

    Of course it does, that is how Allegro is designed.  You did something wrong.
