I am still trying to learn TurboCAD. I just tried typing my project descriptor at the top of what will be a table. I clicked on the A, after which I started typing. After entering the first word, I hit the space bar to start a new word, but that action took me out of the text command. How can I type more than one word to complete a sentence? Also, I want to color code items in the table---how do I apply light colors to a given row, or is that even possible? Thanks for any help I can get.

In Select mode, click on the Text object and go into Properties (easiest by hitting <Ctrl> F).

Select the General tab to see the text.  You can change it pretty much as you wish, multiple lines.

I couldn't replicate your problem with text in a Table.

Color coding can be done in the Style Manager under "Table Styles". Create a new style and edit until you're happy. You can assign a Text color here or edit individual text using the "Color" list in the text editor.
