I haven't been here for a long time.
I have tried searching the fora but can't find the right terms to elicit some answers.
I have been using Turbocad for a long time.

I  have upgraded my computer to W10.

I am currently still using TC V16 de luxe which appears to work fine and do what I want.

Running on my W7 machine the menu bar shows:
File Edit View Workspace Insert Format Tools Modify Modes OPTIONS Help

On my new W10 machine the Options (and the sub menus e.g. Program Setup, Drawing Setup etc. )tab is not showing on the menu bar and I can't find a way to display it. Can anyone help me please?

P.S. can I load the program configuration from the W7 machine and if so how to I do it? I have a feeling I may have done it before.

In your Win 7 computer, go to "…Documents \ TurboCAD Deluxe 16\ Config". Look for your configuration; it should be listed in two files having a "XCFG" and a "XML" extension.
If it's an old style configuration, it'll be a single file with a "CFG" extension.

Copy those over to the same place in your Win10 computer.
In your Win 10 Deluxe 16 program, go to "Tools / Customize".
Look in the "Load From" list for your configuration name, then click on the "Load From" button.
You should be good to go.

Depending on security settings, you may have to be in Administrator mode to copy files into the folder.
