I used your fpd file and exported it as a dxf. I opened it in a CAD software and separated the perimeter from the mounting holes to create two dxf files.
Back into Front Panel Designer I imported the perimeter to get the front panel shape. After that I imported the mounting holes with the 'free contour' tool.
Check out our YouTube channel. We have a couple of tutorials explaining this more in detail..
Attached is your reversed design.

Perfect! So simple!
I might add for other people to get the perimeter to load. Start a 'File' 'New' Basic Shape: 'Free Shape From .DXF'
