After I use Cad 5 for a while the selection window does not match where I am actually selecting.  It is offset to the side.  It does select were i have the pointer.  Also when I do an Offset the new line does not Offset the correct amount.  For instance if the Offset value is 22 inches it actually Offsets 14.89?

Have just tried to emulate your offset with version 5 Pro on Win 8.1 and I get an offset of 22".

How do you do your selecting?  Are you picking objects or creating a selection window from the right to left to grab all items in the selection window?

Thank you for the response.  This happens when selecting in both modes, Right to Left and Left to Right.  I have attached a screenshot that shows the cursor is left of the Selection Window.  I have tried closing and reopening, changing 2D/3D modes.  Also sometimes get the message the object is not on the Workplane.

Make sure that the item is on the work plane by going to Modify/Place on Workplane

I have downloaded DoubleCAD XT 5, which is the same as TurboCAD LTE 5 and have drawn a vertical line and have offset it 22" OK. Selection I have not had this issue. Are you using Win 7 or Win 8?

I have sent you a PM.

I think that is the problem.  I selected all and placed on Workplane and it is working.  Question, how do elements get off the Workplane?

Great to hear. In answer to your question, I really do not know, I have only had it happen a couple of times and could be a bug so I will bring it up with the BETA team.

Edit: Have asked the question.
