I created a couple of custom capacitors because I need a couple of them to be horizontally mounted on the pcb board. Typical electrolytic capacitors with both leads exiting the same end of the case, leads bent 90 degrees, so the cap lies flat on the pcb. So I created .svg files for the pcb view for my parts, with the copper holes and a silkscreen rectangle of the size capacitor’s case.
I used fritzing’s standard electrolytic capacitor and in the parts editor, I loaded in my pcb .svg file and changed some settings (capacitance/voltage), and saved new part. The new part works fine, but in the schematic view, the capacitance/voltage values that are usually displayed by the part’s label are missing. Right clicking on the label in schematic view brings up a menu where I can turn on display of those values. Save file and re-open, and the values are gone and have to be turned on again.
Is there anyway to turn on the display of these values so it’s default like the fritzing core parts?
