Simple and intuitive interface
As far as graphics tools go, FrontDesigner is certainly one that can be considered user-friendly. It follows a classic and efficient GUI layout that places all its main tools in plain sight, making them easy to access and learn.
You don’t need any special skills to be able to create your panels using FrontDesigner. Besides the fact the application comes with detailed and comprehensive documentation, it’s also pretty much self explanatory.
Basic tools that can be used for complex designs
The tools that FrontDesigner offers don’t differ much from those of other graphics software. You get drawing tools for rectangles, circles, polygons and so on, which you can use with functions such as rotate, stretch, mirror and more.
Grid snapping is available to make sure your object and text alignments are spot on and you can also insert elements from a very large library of symbols with a simple click and customize them with an additional two or three.
These can then be grouped into larger composites which allows you to create precisely the custom objects you need.
One of the most interesting features of FrontDesigner is the fact that it allows you to create plot files that are used by milling machines to engrave panels. Moreover, this feature allows you to save money by not paying a specialist to do this and it also makes FrontDesigner a viable tool for shops that offer this service on a daily basis.
To sum things up, FrontDesigner seems to have all the specs required to make it both a practical and efficient tool for any situation where you need to design and print custom front panels.
