After running Front Panel Designer 4.0 installation, I find that anytime I try to modify a panel created in 3.5 version the 4.0 application crashes.
This is a repeatable crash that happens everytime I try making changes. I have tried this on another PC and get the same problem.
I am running Windows 7, 64 bit on an HP Pavilion computer.
Here is the application crash information as reported by Windows:

Is there a fix for this problem?

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your crash report.
We are planning to release version 4.01 soon (within May). It will include bug fixes reported from different operating systems.
Thanks again and let us know if you need help with old 3.5 files. We can save them in 4.0 for you so that you can work with them.

I checked with out software developer regarding the 4.0 crash. They need the 3.5 file that caused the problem for further testing.
Can you please send it to me (firstname.lastname@example.org)?

I had some custom connectors I had made as templates that are no longer available. I understand the shift to seperate the included connector and user connectors but I do not see my custom connector anymore.

You can import macro object of older FPD versions by right clicking on the 'User' folder in the macro object window.
They are located in your installation folder of version 3.5 and have the extension fdm.

Just downloaded 4.0
I noticed that:
On the main program The icon for inserting a curved slot has a help window bubble that pops up that says "Inserdt curved slot"
I had one place where the error message popped up in German. I could not replicate this error so I can give no other info.

I don't directly order my front panels. When I installed the 4.0 version I no longer see a drop down list for shippers. Do I have to enter in some information to see this list? I use this to estimate what I need to do to get my pannels on time.

Hi all, does any one have a VGA connector template I can use.

I need to have a circular island in a cavity. That is, if I'm starting with 4mm material, I need to have a rectangular area milled down 2mm but have a circle in the middle still up to full height. Can I do this with a circle-in-rectangle cavity (depth of 2.0mm but inner depth of 0.0mm)?
If this won't work, is there a way to do this, other than carving out a bunch of cavities around the island which will end up only kind-of circular?

You describe exactly the function of the object 'circle in rectangle cavity'.
The rectangle will be milled as a pocket and will leave the circle in the center as island.
You also can have the center milled down to a lower depth (let's say in your example to a depth of 1mm). In this case you would need to place a second 1 mm deep circular cavity on top of the island. The depth of all cavities is always absolute to the material surface not to another cavity.
And if you don't want the circle centered to the rectangle you only need to wait until April 12. Our new version of Front Panel Designer will offer an offset for the island. You will be able to move it in X and Y within the cavity.
The new version 4.0 can be downloaded from our website next Monday, April 12. It will be available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
