  • Front Panel Designer dosen't start in Linux Mint14

    I installed using the 64bit .deb package with no errors.

    When i click the icon in start menu it dosen't start.

    I don't get any error messages or an hour glass, just nothing.

     

    Any suggestions?

  • DXF import confusion

    Hello, I have all of my front panel cutouts drawn in a cad program and would like to import them directly in Front Panel Designer 4.14 for MacOS (instead of re-drawing them in FPD), but I'm confused as to which cutting tool to select in the Free Contour Properties window. I would think I should select a cutter tool that is at least as thick as my panel (3.0mm) since I want cutouts and not cavities, but when I do that many of the cutouts disappear. If I select a smaller cutting tool then all of the cutouts show up. Which is correct? Thanks.

  • Sorry Please Disregard This Message

    I am new to this and was going to ask how to revise an existing design to remove holes. After posting, I figured it out. So I am deleting my question, but apparently the post can't be removed. Sorry.

  • DXF export

    Why is the DXF exported file in inches when it was drawn in millimeters?

     

    A Panel I laid out is 80mmx107mm, when exported to DXF it is 80in x 107in

  • Clearances

    Still getting my feet wet with this software..

     

    I need to mount a number of switches on a panel.

    The heads of the switches are much larger than the cutouts.

    It would be very easy for me to make a mistake and place them too close together.

     

    Is there a way to show an outline that would represent the max dims of the switch head and not have that actually be a part of the panel itself? Something like a "comment" layer?
