Hi,

this subject appears occasionally, with varying opinions as to the best start position. 

If you begin a new empty drawing, then obviously there is nothing to select.
It would be nice if Select were the default, in a drawing opened which wasn't empty of objects. 
However, currently, that's the way it is.
I find it slightly irritating, but that's all.
It's a minor quirk.   :)

Regards Tim

Try creating a new template with the desired features set, last thing todo is select the select icon and then save the template. Now try starting a new drawing using this template and the line tool should not be active but the select tool instead. This might work.

It dont, TC will open with Linetool no mather what.
If there are something, a line, circle etc. inside the template, its possible to just hit Space and it switch to Select tool

Go to "Tools / Customize —› Options" page. In the "Workspace" section, switch to "LTE Workspace". This will switch the interface over to their AutoCAD look-a-like UI. TurboCAD will always start in the "Select" mode. You can go to the "Dynamic Input" page and change what is shown with the cursor. You also have a Command Line and Aliases, which is not available in regular TurboCAD.
