    Is it possible to directly select multiple text objects in PCB editor?

      Can't figure out how to select multiple text objects in PCB editor.

       

      Is this possible to do directly?  Utlimately I was trying to do this so that I could reduce the silkscreen size of all my object designators to the same size.

       

      I did figure out a workaround though: 

       

      1. Filter to only show the layer containing your text that you want to multiply select.
      2. "select all"
      3. "deselect outside area" and draw area around the text you want to multiply select.

          Hi Tom, here are a couple of other ways of achieving the result. If you want to directly select multiple text objects then hold down the SHIFT key and click to add the text (or any other object) to the current selection. If all the text you need to adjust is on the Top Overlay layer then select View | Filter and in the PCB Filter panel select Groups=All, Objects=Text, Layers=Top Overlay and finally select all objects in the bottom list (click an item in the list and hit CTRL+A). You can then use the object inspector to adjust the text size.
