I coming from Auto-Cad 2D and have some questions
First any good tutorials for newbies?
Second are they going to put a good help file in TC 16?
Have many others but, these will get me started.

Hi DuWayne,

This forum is a great place to get answers and to work through the learning curve. TC works similarly to AutoCAD in many ways with the biggest difference being no command line. Setting up familiar keyboard shortcuts can be helpful.

Textual Creations is a good place to find tutorials. http://www.textualcreations.ca

Hi DuWayne,

You can find some comprehensive new user tutorials here: http://www.textualcreations.ca/Textual%20Creations%20Shopping%20Page.html

V17 is already out so no changes will be seen in V16. V17 just has the PDF help files as well - the new way of TC help. I too prefer the old style help files, but they are a thing of the past in TurboCAD :-(

 ;D In another site we are fighting to get the help files in PDF! Much easier to make hard copies of specific pages for handy reference.
