Eagle Pro...Proportional and vector font.

Not open for further replies.



In eagle i used proportional font as it looks neater...but the silkscreen lettering does not appear on the pcb where it does on the computer screen, ....some of the silkscreen is on pads, or off the board.

Why on earth does eagle have this "proportional " font that puts silkscreen lettering all over the place?

I have just clicked to make all font "vector", so as to correct this...but its giving me a nightmare trying to reposition all the mis-aligned bits of text.

Message to eagle...........please get rid of "proportional" font.

Why do they have it in the first place?

Did you notice the warning related to the "positive coordinates" option in post process? The problem might be related to it.
