I’ve back imported footprints for a .cmp file and I’ve misunderstood kicad’s question about the imported footprints visibility, so all went visible.
And surprise, you can not edit visibility for all fields at once.
So little utility was born – fixvis.
Usage is pretty simple:
./fixvis file.sch fieldid newval
where fieldid is:
0 - Reference
1 - Value
2 - Footprint
3 - Datasheet
4+ - custom
newval: 0000 = visible, 0001 = hidden
Example hide all footprints:
./fixvis name.sch 2 0001 > name-nofp.sch
It would be good to have a global toggle option.
