I am working on an open source design. I can view all the layers in PCBNew. The module references show up on the screen. They are visible even when I deselect Front Silk Screen (F.SilkS) in the layers menu. Under the "Render" tab, I have to select all three: "Text Front", "Modules Front" and "References" to see these values.
However, when I plot the Silk Screen, the values do not show up in the Gerber files. I have selected "Plot module values on silkscreen", "Plot module references on silkscreen" and "Plot other module texts on silkscreen". Still, they don't show up on the SilkScreen Gerber Files. I am viewing the gerber files with GerbV.
How can I make the module references appear on the Silk Screen gerber output?
