  • Object properties shows millimeters and inches

    In the version 3.5 software, why does the "Object Properties" dialog display X and Y in inches even when the rest of the units (such as height and width) are shown in millimeters? this makes designing a lot more work than it needs to be as I have to constantly convert units back and forth using a calculator.

  • User settings not stored by software?

    Is the ability to choose millimeters or inches as the standard measuring unit working in the version 3.5 software? Every time I go into Edit->Settings, I choose "millimeter" from the "Grid Distance X" dropdown box, click "Set as Default" and then hit "OK". When I open the settings dialog again, everything is back to inches. I looked in the registry for where the program would store these settings, but only found entries for the positions of the various dialogs and windows. Are these settings actually being stored somewhere?

  • PayPal Payment?



    I have a front panel designed and was wondering do you accept PayPal as a form of payment. I don't have a credit-card and would prefer to use the USPS for shipping as UPS to Australia gets pretty expensive and I have had loads of stuff sent via USPS with no problems.

  • Can I set the point where a threaded thru-hole starts being threaded ?


    I would like to know if it's possible within fpd to set the place at which the threading in a threaded thru-hole begins.


    As you can see the reason for this is that with standard thread orientation my XLR socket when fully screwed in is 125 degrees out of alignment. I am using a Vista OS so don't have access to the front panel designer help files.


    any help appreciated :)

  • Text on the reverse side

    How does one place text on the reverse side of a panel? I have testpoints that have a through hole with engraved text on the front but the tech needs TP numbers on the reverse side for wiring.
