Re: [RFC] Changing default text size


If you change the default text size, then users schematics will appear
differently the next time they open their schematics and they will have
to go back an change them back to .060" which will change their file(s).
 Will users even notice?  I don't know but if they do, I'll bet they
wont be happy about it.

On my todo list is a global text size dialog similar the the one in
Pcbnew for setting schematic object text sizes.  This may be a less
intrusive way to set schematic texts sizes rather than change the default.
