Adding NAME and VALUE to footprint

Hi

I have added >NAME to tNames layer and >VALUE to tValues layer to a footprint that was missing them.

I have updated my PCB with the new version of the library but cannot get them to show on the 2d PCB 

What do I still need to do 

 

Thanks

Mike

Hi @mike.lerwill,

 

I hope you're doing well. Use the AUTOPOSITION attributes command and that will restore the name and value text to their proper positions on the symbol/footprint.

 

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

 

Best Regards,

Thanks, I thought this was what I needed but it wasn't working for me.

 

I tried again this morning and now understand what I was doing wrong. 

 

In case it helps others, I was selecting the component I wanted to change and then choosing the autoposition attributes which did nothing. If I cancelled the selection then activated autoposition attributes and then selected the component it did work

 

regards

Mike
