Platform/Format: VBScript, Form


Use case description (required)

This script will aid users in changing text attributes (Font, Style, Height, PenWidth, Angle, Mirror) of selected or all texts (Assembly, Silkscreen and/or User Layer texts), on the board. GUI differences may include text font pulldown versus manual entry of the text font, depending on ability of the script to extract the system fonts from the registry. Be aware that if the pulldown gui is presented, some fonts may be called by another name not available in the registry and will not be accepted by Expedition.

Undo Enabled.
