Using PADS Designer VX.2.4.3 Update 2 and having a hierarchical design.


My schematic has inconsistent fonts for reference designators (font not size). I need a means to select and change the font of all REFDES throughout the project. This issue seems to recur with this particular schematic between software updates. I'm guessing I need to scan/check my library for offending library parts as well but I'm not sure the best way to approach this.


I have hidden the problem by using the Settings > Display > Font Styles and overriding the font that gets displayed. I prefer to correct the problem than to hide it.


I have tried using selection filters. Custom filter options helps a bit but always end up selecting more fields than I want to change.


I have tried to manipulate the object type and fields of the search tool but no improvement.
