    Mm thats strange..You shouldn't have to restart. I have not tested it on XP only on 9X NT4 and W2k and never had any problems. Does it start on line creation to?

    If you chose Create->line-> endpoints
    then cursor from the menu, click on the drawing area
    select cursor again and click on the drawing area

    Does it still crash?

    For the other menu options you need to have an entity created. So if you create a line with cursor to cursor. then you can select endpoint and move the cursor close to the line and the line will change color. if you then click it will select the endpoint that is closest to the cursor position. And you have to press esc to be able to access the top menus again. That is a flaw that i am working on.

    When I click on endpoint it brings up the menu on the left, I lose control of the program, meaning I can't actually moved the program window itself and I cannot click on the drawing area. But this IS windows I am using so I might have to restart later on.

    And well yeah it does stop responding and ends up crashing after a while, but ask around it might just be my system that I have to restart, but I'll do it later, I am working on something with Direct X and crap and if I restarted now it would take some time to "set up" everything again, sorry .

    MM if I select Create anything midpoint without anything being on the screen it crashes. The only way to create something the first time is with the cursor option.

    MM yes that could be improved. This is the deal. When the menu pops up to your left, select cursor. The menu will then close. Click on the drawing area and the menu will pop up again. select cursor and click on the drawing area. You should now have a line. To get out of the loop press esc and you should regain control of everything. MM I really should fix that tight loop thing. After the first entity is created you can select any of the left menu options. If you as an example choose midpoint move the cursor close to the entity you want to draw from. It will get highlighted when you are within "reach" click and that position is selected..Mm I am not explaining wery well right now. I need to make my intentions clearer in the program and show an error instead of a crash.

    2.Select cursor: menu will go away
    3.Move cursor to drawing area and click: menu will pop back up
    4.Select cursor: menu will go away
    5.Move cursor to drawing area and click: Line will be created
    6.Press Esc :menu will go away
    7.Select *Create->Arc->Center+edge.: Menu will pop up
    8.Select midpoint: menu will go away
    9.Move cursor to the line. The line will then change color
    10. Click the line: Menu will pop up
    11.Select enpoint
    11.Move cursor to one of the end of the line, Line will get change color.

    Ok it sems like anything that have to do with edit -> trim will crash the computer. That will be fixed by tomorow among some other minor crash prone tasks.
