  • 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

    Folks:

    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?

    Regards,
    Scott

  • 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.

  • Machine Opposing Edges

    Not sure how to set this up... I have inserted a rectangular hole. On one side of the rectangle I need to machine a bevel on the front edge, then on the opposing side of the rectangle I need to machine a bevel on the rear edge. Basically - i am trying to create angled slots for ventilation that help to hide the internals (similar to an air register in the home). Any suggestions on this?
