How to add text (footprint)

You can place text on the COPPER layer, SILK layer, or NOTES layer. To create text, use the F2_ADD_TEXT key. Everything is simple here, you need to set the height of the text and the width of the line, well, enter a text line in the upper field. The process of creating text is the same as in the previous version (FreePCB 1-359), but in the current version it is possible to change the layer. To change the layer you need to select the text and select the layer with the F5 F6 or F7 keys.

If you want to place it on the opposite side, select it not with a click, but with a selection frame. (with the selection frame with the mouse) and reflect the group with the F6 key.
