  • Grid Lines, Font Colors, Tools, Ect.

    Hello, I have a few questions please.

    1.When I create a new 19" 2U panel, it always lands on uneven grid lines. How can I get the grid lines to line up with the panel edges?

    2.When I create a new panel, is it best to manually enter 19" x 3.5" or let the auto config do it?

    3. Do you have some large bright examples of Bright White and Signal Gray? I'm having a hard time deciding which to use because I cant see the true detailed look. I don't want the letters too dim yet I don't want the panel to look like a bright black and white Oreo cookie either :)

    4.I'm choosing the Euro 5 lettering and the .02 engraving tool and on my screen,it looks like the engraving lines will show in the lettering. I want it to look solid with no lines, if I choose another font or tool, I loose the look i want. Is this the case for the actual finished results? Thanks so much!

  • Moving a Front panel once started

    I have a front panel I started and it ends up on pages 14,15,16 when i go to print.(Which is another issue, the FPD print dialog wont let me select which pages I want..http://www.frontpanelexpress.com/typo3conf/ext/chc_forum/pi1/templates/img/emoticons/rolleyes.gif.) But anyway, I could solve this if I could move the whole FP design along the left side of the grid, of course including all my holes and stuff. And up the upper left corner instead of the right side....any ideas?

  • Macro Object

    This may be a stupid question but im trying to make a J1962 macro object. There is a small lip on the top of the connector. I am attempting to create two seperate rectangular cutouts and join them together to create the object. When I do this the two object group, however do not mould into one object. How do I go about joining two cutouts and mould them into one?

  • Bug in Macro Sidebar

    Hi,

     

    When trying to insert a Macro object (K) the reference panel pops up and the cursor goes into cross hair mode, but when you click into the panel, a small error message window pops up which reads:

     

    ----------------

    Front Panel Designer Error

     

    Please select the macro object you want to insert from the macro sidebar.

    ----------------

     

    But there IS NO macro sidebar on the screen!

    The Macro Sidebar cant be toggled on/off either.

    The Macro Sidebar was broken using Version 4.14, and is now still broken using Version 4.31 of Front Panel Designer, MacOS-Intel.

    (Note: The "Messages" and the "Object Properties" screens work perfectly, and I'm using Mac OS X 10.5.8 (9L30))

     

    Please help soon, and

    Thank you very much!

  • Aircraft Instrument Panel

    I am attempting to create an instrument panel and would like to know the best way to create both a 3 1/8 and 2 1/4 instrument hole with the 4 screw holes in the proper locations. I don't see a macro shape or any example templates to use.

  • Pop-up origin description

    When initially using the Front Panel Designer work station, I had a problem understanding the exact purpose of the 3rd icon on the pop-out origin selection bar. The pop-up description for that icon states "Enter coordinates based on the reference point of a object". I did not and still don't understand that language. I would instead use "Enter coordinates to be in common with the reference point of an object". Basically, the coordinates of the new object to be the same as the coordinates of the selected existing object.
