Do you know what the probably best-hidden feature of all #kicad symbols, footprints, schematics and boards is?

🚀 All those objects are text-based 🚀


🟢 Do you want to rename particular labels in the entire schematic?

🟢 Do you want to make a global VIA size change in the existing PCB?

🟢 Do you want to annotate part of the schematic manually?

I can continue with examples for a long time.

The common solution is simple as that:

👉 𝗢𝗽𝗲𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗳𝗶𝗹𝗲 𝗼𝗿 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗻 𝗽𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗽𝗶𝗲𝗱 𝗯𝗹𝗼𝗰𝗸 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘁𝗲𝘅𝘁 𝗲𝗱𝗶𝘁𝗼𝗿 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁. 𝗦𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗶𝘁, 𝗽𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗲 𝗶𝘁. 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗱𝗼𝗻𝗲.

You are welcome.
