How do I save drawings with all the side stuff attached

I work at home and at work on my drawings but when I take a drawing from one computer to another it never saves all the side stuff like property sets etc.  is there an easy way to save the ENTIRE drawing so when I open it on another computer its all there. very annoying trying to enter stuff twice.  I tried saving as a template but the property sets don't show up.

e-pack is in pro / platinum and you will find it in File menu, a little bit down from Save As if you have it

Please better define "all the side stuff like property sets etc."

Further, Styles (such as accessed in Style Manager) and Property Values Presets do in fact save within a Drawing file when saved as a .tcw (normal TurboCAD drawing file type), as well as a .tct (TurboCAD template type).

Linked files, such as OLE Objects, non-embedded Images, and External References do not save within the files like noted above.
Packing all those (and, sometimes, Fonts and other stuff) together is what ePack does (though I've read that ePack sometimes doesn't get 100% of everything).
