Rotate Designators on Board 180 degrees

I cannot figure out how to rotate footprint names (part designators) 180 degrees on the board silkscreen. I do not see a "spin" option like on stand-alone text placements. Thanks!

Hi @kterryTYYYC,

 

I hope you're doing well. Thanks for coming on to the forums!

 

So you could do this by selecting all of the designators and then using the rotate option in the inspector. Another option is to use the Autoposition attributes command to orient all of the designators a certain way.

 

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

Hi Jorge, thanks for your reply. Unfortunately rotate and reposition attributes automatically re-orients the designators to 0 degrees or 90 degrees. It will not let me flip them to 180 or 270 (see picture). Thanks!

Hi @kterryTYYYC ,

 

I hope this message finds you well. My mistake, you'll find that the spin flag is part of the rotate command. So activate the rotate command and you'll see the option to control spin there.

 

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

 

Best Regards,

Ahhh, finally! Thank you! That was unnecessarily painful. Part of the learning curve I guess. Thanks again.
