such a quiet community... almost depressing
Which font are you using? If you are using VeriBest Gerber 0 or VeriBest Gerber 1, you don't see the width of the stroke until you run the silkscreen generator. With the newer Gerber compatible fonts, like VF_STD you should see on screen pretty much what you will see in Gerber. We are still using VeriBest Gerber 0 for silkscreen because we like how it displays zeros. For assembly reference designators or text that doesn't get sent out as Gerber, we use Ariel
Thank you for breaking the ice
We haven't decided yet what to use.
For silkscreen I tried std_proportional but I don't get the exactly the same in the gerber, it's still a bit different.
We don't use silkscreen generator, it's an extra step that I don't find necessary.
For assy I tried Arial Narrow but the PDFs don't look right.
I may have to play with other output settings as well to get what I want.
I just wanted to know what other more seasoned users did about fonts.
It seems like this system periodically stops sending out notifications to email.
I'm busy so it usually takes me a couple of weeks to realize that nothing is coming from MG anymore,
and I have to physically come back to this site and login again to start getting notifications again.
(sorry for your frustration at slow response)
I guess I am heading towards same setup, thank you for your input
I have been used with much more lively forums many years ago. But it's ok, I will adjust.
As a rookie in Expedition, I may be too impatient to find out other designers' do-s and dont-s.
