Good deal Bud!
I don't remember a whole lot about Turbo Cad. Don't even know where the CD is.
I remember when trying to learn AutoCad the manual wasn't doing it for me, so I bought a copy of this book, big big help! Then I got stuck running a dredging job on night shift. The company had just hired a engineering grad right out of Washington State University. So soon has he got through doing my paper work, I made him give me AutoCad lesson the rest of the night! Laughing
One trick that helped me with AutoCad. There must be about a million tools to use, I may only use 40. I placed these tools on the side and bottom of the screen. All I had to do was remember what 40 tools do. Just like the tools in your tool box! Look at all the tools at Sears, do you need or use all of them? Don't get overwhelmed with the amount of tools that are offered, you don't need all of them to draw basic drawings! Wink

Thanks for the tips! I'll figure it out - I used to have time to do stuff like that but then I "got retarded" to WV....
Don't retire! It's too much work! My boat hasn't been in the water in 2 years!
Thanks again!

Hey Bud, I don't know if this will help you or not. I took a screen shot of an AutoCad drawing I did for another site. If you can see it, these are the tools I use. For the life of me I can not remember how Turbo Cad has it's tools. Like I said this may or may not help you.

Thanks! It sure can't hurt! I just need to make time to sit and tinker with it, I hope!

Many years ago, right after the first set of hip replacements took me out of hands on & running a crew of millwrights my boss nailed me coming in the door on a Monday. He needed a 5 year $7m budget for our organization. That was the week I learned how to be proficient in Lotus.....SHORT, STEEP learning curve! But we survived! Thanks again!
