Schematic or board layout - those "pesky" little little crosses are reference marks for the reference point of the label they are affixed to. They are generated to make moving texts (names and values) around for a neat schematic and PCB layout). Click anywhere close to them and you'll have the appropriate text "hanging" at your mouse.
Instead of getting into endless (and fruitless) discussions you should make a paper print of both and tell us if those "pesky" little crosses are contained in the prints.
That does not include disabling layer23 (tOrigins) and layer24(bOrigins)
the second option thro 'options' works. I did change here, but in a period of time forgot.
by the way, what is the actual way to produce a solder mask for the concerned layer , with little more margin than actual dimension of holes/pads? I need to make a PDF of such file. Ofcourse i need to still learn a lot of ULP, CAM, Gerber and many more such.
So I know this is super dead, and super old, but this may be helpful to someone googling this like I was. The crosshairs are to make manipulating the position of the text easier, and it will show up in everything including a printed copy of the board design, even if only the top layer (or whatever layer the text is on) is visible. But, if you export the image of your board design (like I do when I'm doing a photo-resist mask) the text is pure. Included are pics of the before and after of the image export. Sorry for resurrecting this super dead thread, but I hope this helps someone!
Interesting. I don't think I've ever had this issue, and I print text in copper layers fairly often.
Certainly, the text handles aren't in the tOrigins or bOrigins layer and still show up when those layers are off, but they don't show up if I use the image export, print to file, or print it on the printer.
I'm currently using 5.0.0 in Wine, so I would expect to be more likely to replicate such an old issue. I don't recall having this issue when I used the native linux version either.
