Hide Silkscreens From Individual Parts
Sorry if it's been covered somewhere. I promise I looked through the forum for a while first. :)
I'm building a part/shield that attaches to the Arduino Mini Pro (part provided by Sparkfun), so I've dropped that part and the other parts I'm using but once I switch over to PCB view the Arduino silkscreen shows up. But I don't need that. I just need the silkscreens for the parts I'm adding.
I don't know of a way to hide the silkscreen for an individual part while keeping the silkscreen visible on another set of parts.
There's a hack that might work--try it at your own risk. Find the fzp file for the part in question and open it in a text editor (stash a copy somewhere outside of your Fritzing folders first). Open the file in a text editor, and look for the <views><pcbView><layers><layer layerId='silkscreen'> element. Comment out or delete just the <layer layerId='silkscreen'> line. Restart Fritzing. Probably you won't see that silkscreen anymore.
Don't forget to restore the file when you're done.
BTW, did you mean visibility in Fritzing or visibility when exporting?
Both. But more importantly for exporting.
