Thanks Nikki, that's what I have been doing without success. Are you saying that clicking OK should invoke the search? My problem seems to be invoking or implementing the search.
Perhaps nothing in your Drawing satisfies
(wrong word?) the query.
If that's the case, TurboCAD probably will not give you any indication as such.

By Layer, or any other way of getting to Red
). Make sure it is on a Visible and UnLocked Layer.
>Select by Query. Clear the Query box and go to Criteria->Common_Properties...->Line Color. Select Red. [Close].
You should see a query string that reads: 'Line Color'='Red'
>Parse it if you want to, but click OK in the main Query Window.
Is your Red Line
selected? It is for me in version-20PP.
Also-- Please Copy & Paste here a Query String you are trying to use but is unsuccessful. And including the Drawing file here would be a good thing; and share with the Forum in plain words (not Query Syntax) what it is you are trying to achieve-- trying to Select-- via the Query.
