This has happened twice. shortly after opening a new drawing I was browsing through the text properties and it just went straight back to the desktop, with not so much as a KMA, the other instance was using the leader tool manipulating a series of ballooned item Nos.

Never had this problem before the new full install.

You may want to do a clean install, possibly settings of the older install could cause this.

After using add/remove programs or the programs and features control panel delete the following folders.


C:\Program Files\IMSIDesign\TCWP16

C:\Documents and Settings\your user name\Application Data\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD\16\Professional


C:\Program Files\IMSIDesign\TCWP16

C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Roaming\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD\16\Professional

Re-install TurboCAD from the download.

Thanks' for that, I do like the full install method instead of all the patches, It would be great if this became imsi design policy.

re: ...delete the following folders. —  C:\Documents and Settings\your user name\Application Data\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD\16\Professional

For the "AppData / Application Data" section, this seems a bit severe to me. I think deleting the contents of the "Built-in" folder would be enough. Deleting the other folders wipes out any custom LightWorks settings you may have created. Those settings that aren't assigned to objects in the various drawings will have to be recreated.
