  • Clicking on Pop-Up Menus in FPD 4.5.1

    Gentleones,

    In FPD v4.5.1 for Mac OS X, it is no longer to click on the body text of pop-up menus in dialogs to trigger the menu. (E.g., the countersink pop-up menu in the insert hole dialog.) Instead, I must click on the arrow portion of the pop-up menu. This behavior is different than version 4.4 and makes 4.5.1 much more difficult to use.

    (It looks like the type of user interface element changed from one in a rounded rect with a double arrow at the end to a combination text field with a b***on on the end. I've never seen one like it before.)

    Can you please revert the control type in the next update?

    Thanks,
    Bill

  • Inside corners on DXF import

    Hello, how do I go about creating the cutting tool bump-outs for the inside corners of a DXF import shape? Do I need to draw the corner bump-outs manually in my drawing before import into FPE?

  • cavities

    If I place a large cavity on the front side and a smaller cavity inside it on the back side, the back side cavity is not visible on the drawing.

    Also, the instructions to globally change to inch units do not seem to work

  • Keyboard Not Functioning Correctly

    Gentleones,

    I cannot use "M" to set coordinates manually, I cannot use "1"-"4" to select the snap mode, and I cannot use the number pad keys to set the origin.

    Other keys work: "A" selects the ruler, "space" clears the tool, Shift-G makes a group, and so on.

    I have tried booting in "safe boot" mode and the problem persists.

    I'm using FPD v4.5.1 and OS X 10.11.5.

    This problem makes the program unusable.

    Thanks,
    Bill

  • Orientation for side machining

    Hello. For side machining, I assume that in the side file, the upper edge always corresponds to the front surface of the panel in the main file. Therefore, for the upper side edge of the panel, the origin in the side file would be located at the upper right corner on the bottom surface in the main panel. Is this correct? Thank you.
