Hi Paul

Try a global change on all designators and comments to set the
"autoposition" (in both designator and comments sections) to something other
than "manual".  I struck this problem early on - it only affects hidden
designators and comments with autoposition set to "manual".  I have set my
default autoposition to "centre" and no longer have this problem.

HTH.
Brendon.

Subject: [PEDA] Invisible Components On PCB
