I take an Autocad .dwg file, open it in ABViewer, then save it as an HPGL (.plt) file. When I try to import it as an HPGL engraving, the preview window shows it as a bunch of lines going every which way.

Sorry you are having issues with your file. Can you email us your AutoCad file so I can see if I can correct it?
Email is firstname.lastname@example.org

I've used FPD for years on a PC and have now migrated to running FPD v.6.21 on a new MacBook Pro. My latest front panel design has text engraving on the panel. The text includes an apostrophe (the text is "Engineer's Amp"). Curiously, while the text shows properly in the text box, in both the preview window and on the panel FPD converts the apostrophe to a question mark (i.e., "Engineer?s Amp"). The conversion cannot be corrected.
What's going on?

Sorry to hear you are having issues. Can you email me the .fpd file so I can forward it onto our developers so they can see why you are having this issue? Email email@example.com

I feel like an idiot not being able to figure this out, but I am new to FPE and cannot figure everything out.
I accidentally closed out of the toolbar on the left side that allows you to place entities a certain distance from the origin. Now that I have closed out of it, I have no way of placing items exactly where they need to be, and I cannot figure out how to get this toolbar back.
Can someone help with this?

Are you referring to the OBJECT PROPERTIES window? If so, go to VIEW and then click on OBJECT PROPERTIES.
Let us know if this does not work.

Are there any off the shelf spray paints that are close to the colors you offer on your panels? The Red, blue, black, gold, green, etc... ?

I replied back to your email with the below response:
Thank you for contacting Front Panel Express with your inquiry.
Unfortunately we do not. We can send you a sample pack of the colors if you would like and then you can use those to match when you shop for your spray paint.
All I will need is your ship to address.
You should receive your sample packet sometime this week.

After downloading the latest version, I can't create
any new files because the bottom portion of the 'Properties' page is missing. Is there a glitch in the new version? I'm running Windows 7.

Thank you for contacting us with your concern. This has happened to a couple other users and a fix will be implemented on the next update. I would recommend you download the previous version until new version is released. Sorry for the inconvenience.
