Thanks for your reply John,
I am using Turbocad LTE V8 standard. when I click Tools / Palettes, I get a choice of 5 Palettes: Selection Info, Measurement Info, Colors & Brushes, Blocks, Library Palette. I can't figure out how to navigate to the Variable Palette. Can you help me find out where it is? Maybe I need the Turbocad LTE V8 Pro?
