Every so often I get a part that  gets locked up and it says not responding and it just loops and goes on sometimes a very long time sometimes more than an hour before a window comes up close the program.
I  wish there was a command in the menu to stop the process as I know it is going to not respond and keep looping or doing what ever it does. Some where a button in the top bar preferably red to hit or menu command to stop the file from going on and on. As per say killing the process and taking me back to the file or closing it.

The problem with that is if TCAD is locked up, it probably won't respond to the command. When I get the infinite loop of not responding, I kill it in the Task Manager.

Could you please explain how you do that, the steps you take . I would really like to know how to do that rather than sitting 1- 2 hrs waiting for it to crash!

   Step 1 - Right click on the Taskbar and then select Task Manager.

   Step 2 - Right click on TurboCAD and then select End task.

I hope this helps.

You can generally kill it by clicking the top-RH close button.  Within a few seconds a Windows dialogue tells you that the program is not responding (surprise!) and asks whether you'd like to close it now or wait until it responds.  Decisions, decisions.
