I added the >NAME attribute to the footprint of a device and now the names are not shown on the board.

I have already tried to update the library (with library --> update all) and also the replace function.

But when I place the same part again the name is shown, only the old ones wont update, even with the replace function the names are still not shown.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Andyaka Like I said, the replace function is not working, doesn't matter if I select one by one or as a group. \$\endgroup\$

Now I found the answer myself.

When the REPOSITION tool is selected, click on the parts where the name is missing and then the name shows up. Also when a group is selected it's working, just right click and Reposition:Group.
