  • Potentiometer scale encraving

    Hi all people


    I am new here on this forum and also new Front panel designer user.

    First I would ask where I can find the tool to make on my front panel a scale for pots. same kind of engraving and painting as text.

    Maybe there isnĀ“t such a tool, or macro.. what ever it needs.


    It would be nice to have scale with numbers from 0 to 10 or just lines surrounding the knobs.

  • Small holes in cavity

    Hi, my 6mm thick panel has a large cavity that is about 5mm deep. I would like to place some 2-56 tapped holes in the cavity, which will only pass through the remaining ~1mm of material at the bottom of the cavity. However, FPD still thinks that the material is 6mm thick and will only let me tap a blind hole, 5.8mm deep. Is there any way to convince the program that the material is only 1mm thick at the location of these holes, so that it can tap them thru? The same restriction applies to regular holes less than 2mm diameter.

    I'm on a amd 64 bit platform.


    I downloaded the 64 bit rpm version.

    But yum gives this error:

    install of frontdesign-4.3.1-2.x86_64 conflicts with file from package filesystem-3.2-19.fc20.x86_64


    Please could I get a little help?

  • Adding text in other languages



    I would like to add text to a panel in Greek. The program doesn't seem to have any fonts that will allow me to do this. Suggestions?
