Hi Dan,

I'm not 100% sure what you mean when you refer to text pad. Do you mean where you have an 8 shown in the middle of the pad above or are you referring to the >NAME and >VALUE property text? I'm assuming you mean the former. Pads don't have a visible text property in the board so this must be something drawn on another layer. Try turning layers on and off to see where it is and then try to see if you can get to it's properties to determine how it's drawn. I suspect it's on tPlace and it's drawn with lines/arcs. I'd suggest you don't actually want that there on the silk screen as it's right in the middle of a pad along with the body outline of the part.

If the above doesn't help you resolve your issue it might help to add more detail on what you are trying to achieve and possibly include a copy of the library part so we can take a look.

Best Regards,

Rachael

I talk about pad number, as you see this text appear in PCB, I have two opposite pads for component and I see both texts ("8" and "9")

Ah I see, so it was the one I thought. So I didn't see that on my libs but in your latest pic I see you have pad names on all your parts which was the clue I needed. I don't think its possible to change the size of that text but If you want to turn the visibility off then do Options -> Set... -> Misc and then uncheck "Display Pad Names".

Best Regards,

Rachael

I'm sorry, but the pad name size can't be changed.
