  • Irregular Panel Shape

    Hi,

     

    How do I design a rectangular panel (5"x24") with a (2" radius) semi-circular cutout on the bottom middle edge?

     

    The panel replaces a boat dash panel. The cutout is needed to clear the steering column.

     

    Thanks.

  • NEMA 5-15R

    I want to build an AC power filter and I was disappointed that FPD did not have an object for the standard NEMA 5-15R duplex receptacle (unless I missed it). Has anyone successfully created it and could send me the object or tell me how I could easily cut and paste this object into FPD?

  • Category Tree is Corrupt

    Hi, I thought I'd leverage the macro folders and add my own folder. When I did that I got an error that the "category tree is corrupt!". It did not add my folder.

     

    Subsequently, everytime I tried to add a new macro object the error comes up (I'm not even trying to create a new folder at this point). Yes, I did quit and restart the program and the error remains in this file.

     

    Further, when I tried to rename a macro object, the program crashed completely.

     

    Don't know if this has been reported, or if files can get corrupted, but I hope not because I've spent a lot of hours on this file. Please advise.

     

    Thank-you,

     

    Mike

  • Micro-nudge

    Hi, another great feature would be the ability to change the nudge value when using the arrow keys to move objects. Changing the default nudge value to the smallest increment you folks can mill would be very helpful in lining things up. Even better, allow the user to choose in the preferences from the smallest to the largest nudge.

     

    Many graphics programs also allow adding modifier keys to the nudge, so a Shift-nudge would be bigger than a regular nudge, and a Control-nudge would be smaller than a regular nudge.

     

    I don't mean to hold a nudge, but...

     

    Thank-you,

     

    Mike

  • Complex Drill Holes

    A really helpful feature would be the ability to combine simple shapes to make more complex cutouts. Most graphics software has this ability, and it would save a lot of time to be able to take a circle and a rectangle drill hole and combine them to make a keyway for a switch, for example.

     

    Thank-you,

     

    Mike
