  • Missing dialog Box

    When I use FPD to create a new panel I cannot see the small dialog box at the bottom of the screen where I can click OK to create the panel.

    I've tried changing screen resolution but that does not help.

  • G 1/4 BSP

    I need this thread which is deeper than a standard thread and my plan was to tweak the major diameter until the minor diameter matched BSP standard then use the matching thread pitch and subsequently run a proper tap through it. Is there a way to do this without having to tap afterwards? Thanks!

  • Side Profile 1 dimensions

    I'm trying to design an enclosure using "Side Profile 1" but the drawing in the enclosure manual doesn't have enough dimensions to locate the y-axis location of each slot. Is there a more detailed drawing that includes all the dimensions?

    At a minimum I think I need the two dimensions "C" and "D" indicated in red in the attached file.

  • 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.
