Why do I get 'Cannot open file:...

Why do I get 'Cannot open file:...when I try to pull a component out the library, after just placing it there?

I build a component, put it into the library, then save the Library, then try to immediately put it onto the same or another Model.
    I've tried Load Library without success.
    The only way I've found to get around this is to save my work, close TurboCAD and re-open it again.
        This is not a solution. It takes too long, especially when I have multiple components to build and use.

What am I not getting here?

I didn't see any other responses, so I will take a crack at it (even though I don't use Libraries).

From your explanation, you seem to be trying to load an object from a library the same as you load a TurboCAD file.  From what I've read, this is not how it's done.

Once you've loaded a Library, you load the desired object as if it was a Block item.  Are you doing this?
