I noticed that when I draw a circle on my screen using TurboCad v 11.2 a round circle appears more like an egg. Why?  I am basically a new user and do not understand this.

It normally works from the center of the circle to a point,You can set the radius,diameter,circumference in the inspector bar at the lower left of your screen.You can modify the radius in the Selection Palette by adjusting the Major&Minor radius values,or just choose radius value to make the adjustment for the diameter.

My first thought is that your monitor resolution is not set correctly for you monitor. Be sure you are using your monitor's native resolution. If you are not using that you may have selected something with the incorrect ratio and the circles are being stretched.

The monitor resolution aspect ratio that Don mentions came to mind, but you may not be in World/Plan View, where you would be looking straight down. Right-click and choose "World Plan" from the pop-up toolbar above your Local Menu; that may help (hotkey=Ctrl+W). If you hold the mouse wheel down and drag it, your view will turn (orbit), which may have caused this problem or you might have been in an Isometric view.
