John, any of the templates show in Paper space. The only thing I can make out is that Model space and Paper space live in different wolds so that anything you change in Paper space doesn't change in Model space. I haven't tried that, got bigger fish to fry. Help says you create a drawing in Model space and then put in Paper space to print it. That's kinda nuts because you then have a problem fitting the drawing into the printable format. I've always done my drawings in Paper space. If I want to doodle outside the the paper bounds I turn off the background. Duh?? -------- To annoy me, T'CAD opens my older files in Model space although they were done in Paper space. T'CAD has no quick way to move the drawing to Paper space, you just have to do a Windows Copy and Paste, reposition the grabber (what's the proper name for that thing?) to a vertex, and then snap the drawing to the grid, something easy to mess up.
It's not the program.
I hope this comes across as pleasantly as I intend it:
You are not using Model Space and Paperspace as they are intended-- either in TurboCAD or AutoCAD.
Best to do some reading up or watching tutorial videos... and asking questions here with a positive, open, mind.
We (John and the others) just need to get you from your old, bad, habits/way of drawing, in regards to use of Modelspace and Paperspace, and into using the correct way.
If you and some other (experienced) user are willing and able to use WebEx or Windows' Remote Assistance or other interactive, on-screen with collaboration resource, you will quickly learn the correct way of using these types of CAD programs (in regards to Modelspace, Paperspace, and Viewports-- which "links" the two).
Again, I hope the above comes across as pleasantly as I intended it. -Alvin
