I just bought your fantastic product yesterday mainly to make custom mini-panels for my aircraft, and I really, really love it -- it seems almost expressly made for my needs and level of expertise.

I've made my first mini-panel for the PS Panels 737NG freeware that incorporates the HSI gauge.  To finish it off I would just like to add a .bmp frame from the master panel mask around the outside border of the gauge, as the gauge apparently doesn't have one affiliated with it.  I 've already created the .bmp I want to use from the full panel mask, but I can't figure out how to merge my new .bmp frame with the existing HSI gauge.  I've even tried bringing the .bmp frame into the mini-panel as an element of the panel itself, so that I could possibly move the existing HSI gauge on top of it, aligning it so that they actually look like one, but there doesn't appear to be a way to do this and limit the frame to one gauge.  (BTW, the PS Panel is installed via .exe installer and none of the gauges are in .cab files.)

I HAVE been able to bring the HSI from the default 737-400 (which has a .bmp frame incorporated into it's design) into my new mini-panel, and then lay the PS Panels' HSI gauge on top of it, which looks "OK" -- but the frame on the default gauge doesn't match the rest of the gauges and doesn't look as professional as I would like.  I know I'm going to want to do this type of thing more in the future, if it's possible and it seems I should be able to do something like this in the Create or Edit Gauge utilities.

Can someone tell me how to do this with FSPS, or perhaps point me to a step by step guide on how to do it?  I would think this isn't an uncommon request, but I wasn't able to turn any thing up in a search here.

Even if this can't be done, I think I'm really going to enjoy having this product!

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
