  • Install error OSX

    Hi, just upgraded and stupidly overwrote my older working version in a desire to finally be able to import a DXF file from illustrator, a seemingly impossible task.


    Anyway, I downloaded the latest version for intel macs, and it won't open at all, giving me the following error:


    "FrontDesign" can't be opened because the identity of the developer cannot be confirmed...


    OSX 10.9.5, 2.4ghz core 2 duo


    I'm working with this software and this just shut me down for the day(s).

    Thank you for your bug report. I just emailed you installation packages from older versions.


    We are aware of this problem and are working on a new release that will also solve a couple on Linux issues.


    I apologize for the inconvenience.


    Kind regards,

    I got the new version working! Had to change security settings in my shiny new OS, but then I was able to import an illustrator DXF without problems.


    Thank you for your help!

    Quick way to launch latest (4.4) OSX version of FrontDesign:


    1. Locate FrontDesign in finder

    2. Ctrl-click or right-click FrontDesign

    3. Click open

    4. The dialog you are presented with will now contain an 'open' button.

    5. Click Open. This now adds the app to your security exceptions so you don't have to use finder to launch it again.
