Another odd thing with text positions of components is that the autoposition
takes precedence over the rotation. If you set autopositon to centre and attempt
to rotate the text position by typing in a new rotation value,Protel ignores it.
Not a big bug unless you are building a circular array of components. And
component re-numbering of arrays, another great feature but Sch does not
re-number arrays in the same format as PCB. grrr

Yes, I think I saw the same thing. But I was not able to reproduce the
problem in a quick attempt. I have some suspicion that there may be some
bug in the way hidden fields are handled, perhaps when a block is being
moved or something like that, when autoposition is on. Because autoposition
is new, it would not be surprising for there to be some kind of bug in it.

Did you know that the autoposition of the comment can vary with the
autoposition and show-hide state of the reference designator, and
vice-versa? Put both on center and they are *not* superimposed on each
other; rather the block consisting of both fields is centered.
