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.

Not sure how to set this up... I have inserted a rectangular hole. On one side of the rectangle I need to machine a bevel on the front edge, then on the opposing side of the rectangle I need to machine a bevel on the rear edge. Basically - i am trying to create angled slots for ventilation that help to hide the internals (similar to an air register in the home). Any suggestions on this?

Add the edge machining to both the front and rear edges of the rectangle. Then leave your note in the 'remarks for production' area of the design file and we will adjust the bevel properties manually for you.

Prior to upgrading to 6.1.2 I was able to print a copy of the panel I was designing.
I'm on 6.1.2 and using a project from an older version and now when I try to print the panel I'll get only a blank sheet of paper. I looked around at the settings and it appears that the panel preview is present but it appears as one tile of many that need to be printed.
Can you help figure this out?

Sorry you are having issues. Can you email the .fpd file to email@example.com so we take a look at it?

I've updated to the latest version (6.1.1) of FPD and while I can design a panel with no issues, I continue to get this error message:
"ALERT: this price calculation is no longer valid. Please download the current version of Front Panel Designer".
I've reinstalled version 6.1.1 three times now with the same results. When I click on the "About" menu, it tells me I'm running version 6.11.
What's up here?

Just a quick clarification: This is a messaging bug and does not affect the price calculation at all. The price listed is the price you will get. This notification is being shown in error. We are working on a solution now and will get back to you as soon as it is ready. Thanks again, and if you have any questions please let us know.
