Turbocad LE

LE stands for Learning edition, it is actually Turbocad v4, the last 2D Turbocad version. v5 & up are all 3D. Was distributed as a free promo edition by imsi, was withdrawn because of problems with Win XP. Now available from Turbocadables instead of freecad but but I cannot get the URL listing to edit.

See how-to's below regarding object reference points when moving objects and regarding importing QCad files. There are two upgrades available from neither of these has been tested.
