    Do you have the 3D model too? Altium changes the bounding box to the 3D model if there is one, and has a large box when there isn't one. 3D model could be linked, so moving to another machine may fail as the linked file does not exist.

    I have seen it always enabled in AD20 ... I am not sure if it is possible to disable the automatic special string conversion.

    In old AD, and in layer stack colour setting we had an option to control the conversion and visibility of special strings on PCBs, looks gone in AD20, am I right?

    Maybe try to figure out if the problem is in library or in the board .... for example maybe try to copy components from a library with no problems and place them into your project ... to see if that helps.

    Hi, robertferanec in the imx6rex project the problem does not appear. It is really strange, I had the same problem in a few projects using Altium 18 but in others, I hadn't. For example, I was checking the project 28pin that I made in your course last year and it seems ok.

    Maybe try to download our project from https://www.imx6rex.com open it and check out our PCB. Let me know if it is the same or if our PCB behaves differently.

    I had the same problem with Altium 18. Actually, I was hoping that in Altium 19 this problem was fixed but I was wrong

    also you could try in altium 18 to see if you can do it there.. AD19 is still not bug free enough to use as your daily driver IMHO

    Yes, I'm running the Altium 19.0.14 version, that is the last version available to me.

    Just an idea - I had some problems with layers in AD19 (not exactly this problem, different problems) and once I installed the latest fix, everything worked properly. Are you running the latest fix? Maybe that could help?

    Yes robertferanec , I tried a lot of things but I'm sure that this is the assembly layer because I measured the box in the TOP Assembly of the library and in the TOP Assembly of the PCB and it is the exact same size. Additionally, as I said when I edit the size of the box directly on the PCB every works as supposed to do, but until I restart Altium.

    The original size of the box is because of the text ".Designator", Altium is replacing it by the actual designator but don't change the size of the textbox accordingly.
    I do not have access to altium right now to try it, but I do not think this is happening in my altium.

    I do not know - maybe if you show ALL Layers, maybe something else is there - but on different layer? But I guess, you have already tried that.

    In Altium 19 I'm having a similar problem. Although I can edit the size of the textbox of the assembly layer when I close the Altium the problem remains. The solution of resizing the box only works until I close Altium. This is really annoying because disturbs all the placement. The original size of the box is because of the text ".Designator", Altium is replacing it by the actual designator but don't change the size of the textbox accordingly.

    Did anyone find a solution for this?

    Thanks

    I do not have any problems in that area (no placement problems, no selection problem):
