Also keep in mind Chris: TurboCAD's User Interface-- "Workspace" (User Interface) -- is extremely customizable. All the Commands-- via Toolbars, Menus, etc.-- can be in various and duplicate locations, as created/altered by you-- the User, and/or provided by or started upon one supplied with the program installation. Same with the Keyboard Shortcuts-- for most Commands, we can create whatever key or key-combination shortcut we want to invoke a Command.
So, depending upon what "Configuration" (Workspace configuration file) one is using, the Keyboard Shortcuts could quite possibly be different than those of others giving direction/advice. That's why I don't like to advise via the Internet to invoke a command by using a Keyboard Shortcut, nor telling someone via the Internet where a Command is; those are "Workspace configuration" dependent. I prefer-- when giving direction/advice on these Forums-- to tell someone to invoke a specific command, and let them figure out how/where to invoke/find that command in their own particular Workspace (User Interface) configuration.
In my version-20-ProPlatinum, I have created my own custom Workspace, based upon the Workspace configuration I had built in previous versions, then modified. For me, when using that particular Workspace configuration (we can switch at will), "Alt+Shift+W" invokes the "Place on Workplane" command, the same as when I load-- am using-- the "Default" Workspace configuration.
To make the current Workplane (Coordinate System [not "Co-Ordinate" system] ) the World Workplane-- which is what we want when we are working in 2D only-- you want the command "Workplane by World", which can be invoked a number of ways (via a number of locations-- Menus, Toolbars, Palette), those locations being dependent upon which Workspace configuration file you currently have loaded. There is a good chance-- if using one of the installation-provided Workspace configurations-- the Keyboard Shortcut for "Workplane by World" in the Workspace configuration you are currently using is "Ctrl+Alt+W".
