  • Printing Issues

    I've always set my panel design's material properties to clear Perspex, so that any test prints of designs I do come out in black and white.

    For some reason, the panels are now printing with a grey shade instead of being white when printing them, which I thought would be expected for clear perspex, and is what used to happen.

    What's changed? Can't work out what I've done. Tried different printers etc. Cheers.

  • HPGL file corrupted on import

    I take an Autocad .dwg file, open it in ABViewer, then save it as an HPGL (.plt) file. When I try to import it as an HPGL engraving, the preview window shows it as a bunch of lines going every which way.

  • Apostrophe Conversion


    I've used FPD for years on a PC and have now migrated to running FPD v.6.21 on a new MacBook Pro. My latest front panel design has text engraving on the panel. The text includes an apostrophe (the text is "Engineer's Amp"). Curiously, while the text shows properly in the text box, in both the preview window and on the panel FPD converts the apostrophe to a question mark (i.e., "Engineer?s Amp"). The conversion cannot be corrected.

    What's going on?

  • Toolbar

    I feel like an idiot not being able to figure this out, but I am new to FPE and cannot figure everything out.

    I accidentally closed out of the toolbar on the left side that allows you to place entities a certain distance from the origin. Now that I have closed out of it, I have no way of placing items exactly where they need to be, and I cannot figure out how to get this toolbar back.

    Can someone help with this?

  • Can't create a new file after downloading 6.2.1

    After downloading the latest version, I can't create
    any new files because the bottom portion of the 'Properties' page is missing. Is there a glitch in the new version? I'm running Windows 7.
