FOLLOW THESE STEPS:
1. Establish the scale you wish to use and the size of paper you wish to use and in menu File > Page Layout select your scale - for architectural we commonly use 1/20th so select User Defined and type in 1/20 and the field automatically calculates the decimal - this is now the drawing scale. All future line-work will be scaled from the full size, so you draw full size, it's that easy. As your drawing take shape and you know the extents of it you can change the Rows and Columns to suit, if you check the box that says 'show drawing in preview', it becomes quite easy to see where you are going. This puts you in the picture, so to speak - now for the dimensioning. This is where it gets long winded.
2. First establish your arrow head ( or dim'n line terminator ) style and size in menu DimPen select Arrow Head > Style and check your terminator, then select Arrow Head size. This opens a dialogue box that has pre-set values - Multiply all these values by the denominator of your scale - in this case - 20, all except for the angle - for obvious reasons. Click the OK button.
3. Text sizes for both dimension and notes. Select the Text icon on the Main Tool Palette then Text in the menu, then Size > User Defined, I commonly use 3.5mm, so again multiply this by your scale denominator ( 3.5 x 20 = 70 ) and check the Model radio button, then Ok.
4. Dimension text is much the same way. Just select the Dimension Icon on the Main Tool Palette and DimText in the menu, if you use different size text for notes and dimensions this would affect your values.
5. Now we put it together in the manager.
From the menu select Dimension > Standards Layout > Standards Manager. This opens a dialogue box with a whole set of values with a heading file relating to a current Standard i.e. ( DIN; JIS; ISO ); Scroll through and Select the one you are using.

I have TurboCAD Designer 2D for Mac V.5 December. Last night I opened my old project, made some changes and saved it. Now when I try to open that revised file I saved last night, I get error message:...


Hello!

If autosaved is enabled in your CAD, then most likely you can recover a n sv$ file of it saved in a temp folders. You can rename this file and change the extension from .sv$ to .dwg.

This link may help you find the folder where autosaved CAD file is stored

This link might help you also.

Good Luck!

Turbocad starts to register regenmethods from tcimage.dll


Re: 11.2 Program will not start
I found this on the TurboCAD forums,

"Doesn't appear in "Applications" but appears in "Processes" in Task
Manager (XP)."

I posted the following there also.
====================================================================

I am having the same problem sort of. I installed it on my computer
and the TCStart Module stops responding.

If I click the TC icon, the TCStart Module will open, but if I click
on "NEW" it just closes and stops responding.

I tried opening a file that I had brought home on a disc, clicked on
it, and it will not open.

If I try to open the file from the Start Module by navigating to the
file location, the whole thing stops repsonding.

[EDIT]
One more thing, at the bottom of the Start Module it says, "TurboCAD
starts to register RegenMethods from TCimages.dll...", and it stops
there. I don't ever remember seeing that before.

Hard disk crashed on macbook


You can tell if your hard drive for your Macbook Pro has really crashed, if you attempt to run these 3 diagnose and repair procedures and there is no response from the hard drive:

1st Procedure:

font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} font.f2 {font: 14.0px Myriad Pro} - USING FSCK COMMAND TO VERIFY AND REPAIR DISK-
Start up your computer in Single-User Mode to reach the command line by doing this:
•Make sure your Mac is shutdown.
• Reboot your Mac
• When Mac starts up, press the Apple Command key+ S Key
- A black screen, with white text appears
• At the command-line prompt, type /sbin/fsck -fy
• Press Return.
--fsck will run through a series of tests and will return information about your disk's use and fragmentation. When completed, it will display this message if no issue is found:

The volume (name_of_your_Mac_volume) appears to be OK

If fsck found issues and has altered, repaired, or fixed anything, it will display this message: --FILE SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED--

Important: If this message appears, repeat the fsck command you typed at the beginning, until fsck tells you that your volume appears to be OK (first-pass repairs may uncover additional issues, so this is a normal thing to do).

• When fsck reports that your volume is OK, type reboot at the prompt and then press Return.
• This last command after completing the fsck process, is going to attempt to boot your Mac to the main desktop.

If unable to reach your Desktop with the fsck procedure, go to the next step.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Procedure # 2
font.f1 {font: 13.0px Myriad Pro}
-RUN DISK UTILITY WITH STARTUP DISK-

Insert your Mac OS X Startup disk
•Reboot your Mac
•At the Apple Chime, press the C key and hold it until you see a White screen, gray Apple and eventually a Spinning gear.
• Release the C key only after you see the Spinning gear.
•Mac will boot from the startup disk to the Installer environment
• From the Installer Menu bar, click Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility application.
• Click on on the hard drive at the top of the window in the left sidebar and
• Select "Repair Disk"
**Let Disk Utilities run this repair the disk until completion
• At the end of this process, reboot your Mac

* If you have still not gotten a successful boot to your main desktop, try this final step.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Procedure # 3
My recommendation for this issue, is that you use the Archive and Install procedure to resolve this issue.

What this process consists of (using your Mac OS X install disc),is removing the damaged or corrupted Mac OS X directory and replacing it with a brand new directory.

This procedure also allows you to save your applications, files and folders without the old directory interferring with you then accessing those files.

-ARCHIVE AND INSTALL-

• Start up from your Mac OS X Install Disc 1 or Install DVD. Please remember to use the install disc that matches the current operating system your system haves.

Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key.
• Hold the C key until you see a White screen, with a Gray Apple icon and eventually a Spinning gear.
• Release the C key only after you see the Spinning gear.

-Your mac will now boot from the disc and load into the Installer environment.

• Select your language. The Welcome to the Mac OS X Installer window appears.
• Click Continue. The Important Information window appears.
• Follow the prompts until you get to the licensing agreement screen
• An agreement sheet appears. If you agree with
the license agreement, click Agree. Then Select a
Destination window appears.
• Click the volume that you wish to install to (your primary hard drive).
• Click Options. The installation options sheet appears.
• Select Archive and Install.
• Select the volume which already has Mac OS X installed.
• You should also select Preserve Users and Network Settings, to preserve network and Home directory settings.

• Click OK.
• Click Continue to begin the installation.
• Once the Archive and Install is completed, when you reach your desktop be sure to run all Software updates to bring your new Mac OS X directory back
up to current.

Also, if you look inside your Macintosh HD icon on your Desktop, look for a folder entitled "Previous System Folder" which will have all of your previous Home folder files prior to the Archive and Install.

Here is the link (below) from Apple for more information about how to locate the Previous System Folder

How to locate Previous System Folder (after Archive and Install)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
If there is still no responsiveness of the hard drive after this last procedure, your best option would be to take your Macbook Pro in for repair or replacement of the hard drive, to your local Apple retail store Genius bar or local Apple authorized service center.

Best Regards,

Turbocad 14 deluxe freezes when doing moves, copy, and inserting dimensions. Depends on how much detail is in the drawing. Can do very simple things such as drawing, trimming and etc. Have re-installed...


Have you suffient ram. Turbo uses a lot of ram, as well as a high CPU clock speed rate. I have turdo too, had to increase ram chip, runs smooth.

Go to www.offtek.co.uk Free scan of your mem. Readout, advise if you need more ram.
Purchase on line befor 12, with you next day post.

If Ram is ok, come back.

Good luck!

Evaluation expired - not true!


Check the Preferences folder in the System folder to see if there is a TurboCad related file there that might contain an old date.  Delete it and see if TurboCad will start.  If it does it will probably create another file in the Preferences folder that has a new start date for the evaluation period.
