hab gerade die Version 4.4.0 installiert. Leider started FD nun nicht mehr. Fehlermeldung FrontDesign is damaged.
Neu installieren und Rechner erboten hat nichts gebracht. Was kann ich machen?

I've got the same problem with an older MacBook and a iMac. The US version has got the same problem.

We were able to reproduce the problem during the installation on MacOS here. The installation package is not damaged. The openening/installation is blocked by the security policies of Apple's "Gatekeeper".
In order to enable the installation the systems security settings have to be changed to allow installation from all sources. Please see the first screenshot on Apple's support page:
The option has to be set to "Anywhere". After installation and first launch of Front Panel Designer the option can be put back to the original setting.

Danke! Läuft jetzt

Sorry, but this is NOT the solution. You can always install software from "anywhere" by using the "open" option of the context menu (right-click or CTRL-double-click). With 4.4 you can't do this (with 4.31 you could). On the Apple support page
"Damaged app. – The app has been altered by something other than the developer. This message will appear no matter the Gatekeeper option chosen."
Instead of telling people to deactivate gatekeeper for a short time you should fix the FrontDesign 4.4 package.

Update: The "damaged app" message will only appear if you update from an older version. The problem is that the old local signature of the previous version is compared with the signature of the new version. Because they are different, gatekeeper flags the new version as "damaged".
The real solution would be to provide a valid signature.

You are right saying that there is a problem with the signature of the package. This will be corrected with a bugfix version of Front Panel Designer which is going to be released in a few weeks.

Can you verify that the Anodized/Powdercoat panel option means anodized finish on rear of panel and powdercoat on front of panel.
Posted By: Kenny Bruce on Aug 07, 2014 12:36PM Category: Front Panel Designer
Hello Mr Bruce,
I suppose you mean the material option "Aluminium powdercoated/chromated". If you choose that material, the front and the sides of the panel will be powdercoated and the back will be chromated (i.e. conductive). Is that what you were looking for?

Hi, I need a wall mount enclosure, with various cutouts on front, similar to an alarm control panel. Can you make this?
Posted By: Con Cunningham on Aug 05, 2014 04:52PM Category: Front Panel Designer
Hello Mr Cunningham,
We don't offer a standard system for wall mount enclosures, but with our side and corner profiles it is possible to design one. Please have look at our example enclosures:
One of the side panels (in the drawings they are called "Housing panel set A") could be adapted for wall mounting without much effort.
If you need further assistance, please send us an approximate drawing with what you intend to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to find a solution for you.

The order application isn't listing any shipping options to an address in Ireland. Is it possible to submit the order via email?
Posted By: Mark on Jul 17, 2014 03:10AM Category: Ordering
Please send us your order through the order program and leave a note that you would like to have standard shipment to Ireland. The shipping costs up to 4 kg are currently 15,95 EUR plus 19% VAT.

Can you also please confirm the procedure for anodizing after machine work has been carried out.
I found a post stating to enter "Subsequent anodizing, colour black" into the remark field, is that correct? Can you advise on the additional cost of doing so?
Posted By: Mark on Jul 17, 2014 04:18PMReply
The price for subsequent anodizing depends on the size, colour and quantity of a front panel. Please send us an enquiry for a quote before ordering. You can use the order program for that. In the last step of the order process there is a button saying "Request a quote". We will then send you a quote by e-mail.
The text for the remark field in the .fpd file is correct.

Can you provide flare holes in aluminium panels, please see attached.

I have checked back with our technical department. We don't have the tools available for punching holes like that. We could mill a radius on the edge of the hole on one side of the panel. But I'm not sure, whether this would help you.
Posted By: Tobias Tschirch on Jul 11, 2014 10:44AMReply
Hi, thanksf or the reply. I can order my parts without holes and then punh the holes myself. Not a problem. Thank you

I would like a shape which is effective two circles 'joined up' by a rectangle. I've set it up in FPD as two D-shaped holes with a rectangular hole in between, but obviously, the corners of these shapes are not square/sharp. Will the shape which is cut out arrive with smooth/sharp corners if I set it up as per the attached FPD file?
Plus, I've included two rectangular cavities at the top and bottom of the panel, so that I effectively get a two 1mm deep 'ledges' - will this work as I have set it up?
Sorry, but it's difficult to describe in words. Hopefully, the attached file will make it clear what I'm trying to do!

Posted By: Richard Dubourg on Jun 23, 2014 06:30PM Category: Front Panel Designer
You can achieve that shape by simply placing a rectangular cut-out and setting the corner radius to half of the height of the cut-out.
The cavities are basically okay but they should overlap the panel edges a little in order to avoid burr. I have also changed the corner radius and made the cavities a bit longer so that the result looks more clean.
Please find your amended .fpd file attached.
