I've updated to the latest version (6.1.1) of FPD and while I can design a panel with no issues, I continue to get this error message:
"ALERT: this price calculation is no longer valid. Please download the current version of Front Panel Designer".
I've reinstalled version 6.1.1 three times now with the same results. When I click on the "About" menu, it tells me I'm running version 6.11.
What's up here?

Just a quick clarification: This is a messaging bug and does not affect the price calculation at all. The price listed is the price you will get. This notification is being shown in error. We are working on a solution now and will get back to you as soon as it is ready. Thanks again, and if you have any questions please let us know.

Hello! Is there any way to have full-color imagery with a white background printed on anodized aluminum (rather than choosing powder-coated aluminum, which cannot have graphics printed on)?

Import your graphic and make sure 'underprint white ink on the front panel surface' is checked. If you have any further issues or questions email us at email@example.com

I have a simple line drawing that I might want to include as an engraving on a front panel I'm working on. I have jpg and pdf files, but can't seem to find a free program to convert either of the files to HPGL. If anybody knows of one, I'd be grateful.
Another idea: I read a post here that leads me to believer FP Express will do the conversion and include it in the design, but I'd like to be able to see it on the cad program so I could mess around with it before deciding if, and how, to include it in the design.

I have a Win machine in my office and a Mac at home, both have version 6.01 installed, but I can't open the files saved under Win on my Mac, it says, I need a newer version.

I'm looking for a VGA type D connector cutout with 15 pins in three rows. Has anyone made one of those?

Go to the Macro Objects tools in our software and click on the 15-hole under SubD-Connector and drag the cutout onto your panel. If you still need help email us at email@example.com

I downloaded the Front Panel Designer but does anyone know where I can download and read the tutorial before I can use it?

Welcome to the program! We do not offer a manual on using the software but we do have a YouTube channel that will show short clips of how to do key elements as well as manuals on how to design certain features. The manuals can be found under the 'download' tab above. Please also check out the 'Online Help' right above the 'Forum' tab at the bottom of the page.
If you have any specific questions please feel free to send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call customer support at (206) 768-0602.
