You mean the names layer text?

Smash the component with the smash tool. This lets you select the name text with the 'info' tool. You can change the size, ratio, and font type in there.


Thanks guys

I have done the disable layer and that works ,,
But i cannot get the smash to work but i will keep trying,,
The text is almost bigger than the part, And will get confusing when the board is full
