What do the beeps mean?
Read 3087 times

When I load this file, TurboCAD V15.2 beeps several times in an irregular manner (no pattern I can detect).  It will also beep while performing some operations.

What can I do to fix this (as it is obviously indicating an error)?

Thanks in advance,

Jeff

Appears to be a problem with the text. Deleting it stopped the beeping in my operation. I didn't have time to determine which text though. John

Hhmmm... I wonder if it is because the text is Flexible with thickness.

Thanks for the assist.

First three things I do when I get a new computer:
1) Select No Sounds,
2) Run a No Caps registry tweak
3) Remove the Insert key.
It's smooth sailing from there on.

Isn't it possible to do so by prying it out with a flat screwdriver ?

You try it, then let us know whether it worked ;-)

You can have it Flexible, but it'll beep at you when you give it a 3D Thickness. It's been like that for several versions now. The more 3D Text in a drawing, the worse it gets.

It pops right out on mine.

PS I think there is now registry methods to kill this key but I have not tried any.

Hey, mine too! Had to nudge it a bit with the screwdriver blade of my Swiss Army Knife.
