Unable to select and Delete Text

Created: 25.03.2021 | Updated: 12.08.2021

There are text on the PCB that the user is unable to select and due to this, they are unable to move / delete them.

Starting in Version: 18.0
Up to Version: Current

Solution Details

First and foremost, check to see if your Selection Filter has Text enabled. This can be accessed by:

Panels (bottom right) ► Properties ► Selection Filter section ► Make sure Text is enabled (blue)

If still unable to select, this issue is currently a bug due to Multi-line text. This is caused when a Text String is created and then the string is manually resized by adjusting the white corner boxes.

A workaround at the moment is to go to: File ► Print Preview.

Then Close the print preview. This should allow for the text to be selected.
