"Drawing1" is the default name of a new drawing. "World Plan" is the Top view.

'While working in 3D, you will probably have to change the workplane frequently to create objects that have the correct location and orientation.
For example, create a cube based on the default workplane. If you want to create a cylinder on the top face of the cube, you must move the workplane up to this face. Then you can place the cylinder in the correct location.'

this is a good explanation.
i only work in 2D
i don't want to dig into World Plan after all
but what is 'SEKE'?

henry

re: …but what is 'SEKE'?

See SEKE's. Just a fancy acronym that someone dreamed up about 20 some years ago.

Single entry key equivalent.  Configurable access to tools, actions and snaps by keyboard entry.   Imagine you wanted to snap to a vertex: you locate the cursor over the vertex.  Pressing the keyboard V performs the snap, without your having to shift your attention, move your cursor, or navigate through menus or toolbars, and without mouse clicks.

1 first reaction is 'they're spending there programming time working on that?'
yes john i see you probably like that feature

2 i think that may contribute to some of the 'uncontrollability' of turbocad
issues that people report

3 are you trying to tell me there's no 'nesting of commands' here?

Happy New Years!

1. I think they spent their time on that long, long ago. Yes, I do like to use hot-keys, when I find them helpful. Should they do away with hot-keys?

2. By "uncontrollability", do you mean those occasions where people try to use commands from another program in TurboCAD?

3. You'll have to explain "nesting of commands", as I'm not a programmer.
