Somehow Ive lost my tcw file associations inside windows file explorer for Turbocad, so I no longer see any 2D representation of a tcw file when viewed in file explorer. Any idea on howto fix this?

Hi Daz,

in Windows file Explorer, just right-click a tcw file and follow the sequence in the attached screen grabs.
That should do it.

You can design without engineering, but you cannot engineer without design.
Using Win 10 with Designer 2017 and TurboCAD Pro. Plat. 2016/2017/2018 + Lightworks (64-bit versions).

Fixed after installing a beta version update.

Hey PJay are you saying that you can selectively view files via the thumbnail process?
