The best place to find FEMdesigner answers is the internal Help file. It is a treasure trove of technical and how-to information, and we update it with answers to new user questions with every release.
If you can't find the answer in the Help file, please contact your Reseller. Our expert Resellers are located around the world, and are happy to help.
If there's no Reseller in your area, please send an email to product support, and include a detailed description of the problem so we can understand exactly what the problem is. Screenshots are encouraged!
