  • Cntrl + / - & wishes

    I have a long list of wishes but here are a few.

     

    I have to switch between AutoCAD and FPD and keeping the hotkeys straight is mind numbing! my first wish is to add Control + and - for zoom in and out functions. would make life a lot easier.

     

    being able to design in AutoCAD and import into FPD is major. that would save many many hours!

     

    a Bigger stock symbol libray is a must. even just some basics like fuseholders, IEC connectors, duplex outlets, vent hole patterns, etc.

     

    The ability to array objects. select an object, and tell FPD how far apart to space them etc.

  • New to FPE and fisrt question

    Hi,

     

    I'm new to FPE although I have been "playing" with the software a little bit in the past. I purchased a commercial preamplifier with a FPE chassis and like it very much. I intend to build several chassises to match it.

     

    My first question is: I want to thread a switch on the front panel. The switch has a 1/4-40 bushing thread. Am I right to assume that since it will be mounted from the inside on the frontpanel I should use a #4-40 threaded hole placed on the reverse side?

     

    Thanks,

     

    Xavier

     

    ps. PB, if you read this you know what commercial product I'm referring to!

  • 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
