I have just upgraded from TC Pro 18, into which I had installed the materials from Furniture Maker 10, to TC Pro Plat 19 and cannot seem to be able to do the same thing. Does anyone know how to do this and also bring in My Materials from V18.

re: …bring in My Materials from V18.

Go to "Options / Materials / Load Materials". Browse for the "Propin.Dat" file in V18 (C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Roaming\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD\18\Professional\Materials). This should be easy to find since the "Load Materials…" dialog opens at the V19 folder, you just have to get to the same place in V18.

Uncheck the categories you don't need/want in the Material window and then Open. I usually "Skip" when the program asks what to do with like-named materials.
