Hi,

I tried doing a simple extrude on this and could not get it to work.  It's a drawing I did in Doublecad 3 months ago and opened and converted it to TC Deluxe 19.

They're all separate objects. Go to "Modify / Join Polyline" and click on one of the lines. This will convert those objects to a single polyline. This you can use as an extrusion profile.

re: Block disappeared
The selection was moved into the Blocks palette. A Block in TurboCAD is just an internal Symbol, so I'm not sure what that will do for you in this case.

I remember from AC seeming-millenia back that creating a block caused the objects to disappear in model space.  The command "oops" causedthem to reappear, with the block available from that point.  TC behaves the same way.  Creating a block makes the bits vanish, undo/ctrl  + Z reappears them, with the block available in the palette.
Compound profile enabled lets this profile extrude,without joining as pline.

"Use Compound Profile" is only available for Simple Extrude in the Pro editions, not Deluxe.
