I'd like to print value of Revision variable that can be set in Project Options - Parameters (not Document Options on Parameters tab) into silkscreen of PCB. How could I do this?

I don't believe you can print schematic document parameters on the PCB silkscreen. However, if you add it as a project parameter than you can use the syntax '.ParameterName' to print in silkscreen.

Project Parameter Setup: enter image description here

PCB Silkscreen Setup: enter image description here

Resulting Silkscreen: enter image description here

    \$\begingroup\$ @mitjajez If you click the colored "Current Layer" box at the bottom of the editor next to your layers and switch to the "View Options" tab you can check the "Convert Special Strings" box under "Display Options" to show the rendered text real-time. \$\endgroup\$
