Centering RefDes on part?

Question asked by jeff.jenkins on Jul 29, 2016
Latest reply on Aug 8, 2016 by jeff.jenkins

Is there a automated/simple way to put the silkscreen and/or assy reference back on the origin on the part in the pcb layout, beside doing it manually?


I often use an existing board as a spring board for a new board, and as such the silkscreen ref-des and sometime the assy ref-des are off in the weeds.

What I'm looking to do is to move the ref-des  back to the centroid of the part, but I'm finding that the x/y of the refdes is in reference to the board and not the part.  Thus giving it a 0,0 moves everything to the board origin (not so useful).


In a prior tool, the x/y of the ref-des was in relation to the part, not the board origin so it was pretty easy.  but I've not found the right solution here in Expedition.


Thanks for any help!
