How to add text?

Click on F3_Add_Text. In the text options dialog box:

1) enter a text string 2) select units 3) enter the height of the text 4) enter the line width of the text 5) select a text layer

If you selected the BOTTOM side, check the box MIRROR (6).

If you placed text inside a copper area with the hatch style of EDGE or NONE, you can use the NEGATIVE_TEXT option (7) to draw the text as a hole in the polygon.

It is useful to know that when a text string matches the name of a network, that network will be half-highlighted.
