  • Movement constraints

    Is there a way to constrain movement to the ordinal points (0, 45, 90, etc). When resizing an engraving line, or copying an element (using ctl-mose movement) it would be VERY handy to be able to constrain the movement (like holding down shift in Visio)

  • 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).

  • Outline print extremely light

    When I print in outline mode at first I thought it was a blank page until I looked really close, then I could see the incredibly fine lines of the outline. Way too fine to be usable. Is there any way to thicken those even a little?

    Update: I turned off economode and got very fine lines, but at least I could see them. Enough to do a trial fit cutout.

    And of course can print in non-wire mode, using the panel color as the guide.

  • Potentiometer scale encraving

    Hi all people

     

    I am new here on this forum and also new Front panel designer user.

    First I would ask where I can find the tool to make on my front panel a scale for pots. same kind of engraving and painting as text.

    Maybe there isnĀ“t such a tool, or macro.. what ever it needs.

     

    It would be nice to have scale with numbers from 0 to 10 or just lines surrounding the knobs.

  • Small holes in cavity

    Hi, my 6mm thick panel has a large cavity that is about 5mm deep. I would like to place some 2-56 tapped holes in the cavity, which will only pass through the remaining ~1mm of material at the bottom of the cavity. However, FPD still thinks that the material is 6mm thick and will only let me tap a blind hole, 5.8mm deep. Is there any way to convince the program that the material is only 1mm thick at the location of these holes, so that it can tap them thru? The same restriction applies to regular holes less than 2mm diameter.
