Why is there no tutorial for this program...this is ridiculous. I call the
local autodesk atc and they say they don't even offer training. Someone
please help, I've got software, but I can't get it to work..

Chip,

Here's a few things to evaluate. There's a little start-up document I just
popped in the Customer Files area (to get there, see bottom of
http://www.autodesk.com/support/discsgrp/design.htm) that can help you over the
initial hump. It's called Getting Started With AutoSketch and QuickCAD.

In addition, you should invest in Paul Jackson's book, "Hands On A House". You
can order it at http://www.resolv.com.au/shop/hands.htm?x. Very good work book,
and fun to read.

Other than those two things, you should have a tutorial from AutoDesk that came
with the program, and the User's Guide. The latter is really a reference book
and not something you'd want to use to start drawing.

Finally, there's this newsgroup. It's a great way to get your specific questions
answered. *NO* question is considered stupid or unworthy. Most all are quickly
answered, except for the REAL hard ones.

Report back if you have any difficultires with any of the above. And be sure you
have the Intellimouse or similar. CAD-life's not worth living without that.

Hi Chip

I agree, QC7 can be a little daunting at first but once you've
mastered the ins and outs of it you'll quickly realize that it *is*
quite a powerful piece of software, certainly one that is worth every
penny of the 50 bucks you spent for it. Deal is, you gotta spent a
little time with it, experiment with this, try that out, and most
importantly- you got to read the manual... there's a sh-t load of
information in that little book. Don't give up! QC7 has definitely won
me over. It's a marvel of a little program that's undergone successive
refinements over the years. Like Harvey said, there is -no- stupid
question to post in this ng so don't be shy.

ciao

I did a quick check on Amazon and Readmedotdoc. Nothing for Quick Cad. A
mastering Quick CAD or Using Quick CAD is over due for us new guys.
