Just wondering about costs. $40 - $100+ USD for
some of the demo panels looks kind of pricy. Like the
littel 2 inch by 2 inch panels. Unless they are huge in size.

I'll see if there is a smiple way to do knob skirts.

The software has an unfinished feel to it. I thought for the price the designer would do a better job. On the other hand it a lots less expensive than other SW packages that do the same.

Take a loot at Front Panel's software. It is free if you can make it work for this.

Here a link to what I found:

But funny, now there seems to be more
pics than there was before. I don't know
how that I missed the others.

Front Panel Express:*Custom Front Panel Designs & Enclosures - Nameplates - Signs

I'm trying to figure out their price differentials.
Chicken - Mid price $44 - $26.
Sea Horse - Lower price $23. - $17.
Business wall plate - Highest price $109.
Laser warning - undisclosed $?????

Jazbo, David

I'd like you guys to be more like

and let me know if there a way using this program
to make the numbers around a circle like a knob
or switch? Like Terry did in word.

I've played around for a bit in Front Panel Express (FPX)
the skirt but it's not a panel.
David, yep it does feel like unfinished software.

I hate it when seemingly simple things become a project.

I've made circles and centered, but can't make a
circle of text so it doesn' t look obvious.

Any help would be appraciated.

I guess it won't do it. I think FPX people
use Corel for that, then import it. If you go to
make anything, they want an additional $30.00
for machine programming.

Jazbo,

You cannot create curved text objects with
this program w/o extraordinary non-worthwhile effort.

FPX recommends using vectored programs such as
COREL, Illustrator etc and importing them.
Page 5 of their forum.


Which I had, but then you have to pay almost full price
of them again in WIN 7, win 8, etc.

Terry, I'm trying to tweak the text in the file you
supplied. Can you check for me the Font name and Size
you used?

It doesn't come across in the never version of word.

I have that "special" version of office with word,
excel etc, where microsoft crams everything down your throat.

The whole new interface blows and it saves as a .docx.

That's that the way I used to do it.
Letter set and clear coat.
Works really well if you have the patients.
Looks professional. Never comes off.

David, Richard,

Yes, that is what I was thinking.
Making the same kind of template that
I can read on the skirt and clear coating.

I figured with a tad more effort, I could
make the concentric rings of numbers that HP did.
the print to decal.

David that looks nice.

Too bad I don't have a Twin T.
Do you know how to rotate the numbers
for the vectors? or Azmith?

Or

How did you do that?
I've got the outside and concentrics done.
Just don't know how to rotate them and place
numerically each individually. They have to be
tanget to the origin, which I placed in the center.

I'll have to find the old XP on my other computer and
try to load it back on and use the software again.

hmmm, the wife cleaned, placed the CD in a bag,
with notes for something else, then placed them in
a box of amplifer parts and tubes, then put non related stuff
with it and put it somewhere I'll find next year.

Two years looking and I found a rehostat (sp) for the sewing
machine with the tools for my rose garden.

I'm still looking for the rehostat for my hand drill,
like a dremel tool but with wheels and bands to
drive it.

In the next month or two my little girl will start walking.
Maybe I don't need to find that other rehostat.

I'm not sure what software you have. Front design is not the same software as Front Panel Express.
Front design has a wicked learning curve and it's clumsy.

Got it finally.

For some reason I was thinking that Front Express what the slimed
down package of Front Design. Like Photoshop and Potoshop Express
or Lite.

Different...not the same.

Sync <---- is slow but gets it eventually.
