I am a new user of VW but familiar with other CAD software. I am trying to follow steps set out in Learning Exercises 2-13 and 14. The instructions say "Select the file 2Dhouse.mcd from the bottom of the file tree list. Click Entrance Door 1 symbol."

2Dhouse.mcd is on the top, but no problem there. However there seems to be no way to Open, Enter, or otherwise access the symbol, Entrance Door 1.

I can access other symbol files, but not the one in which am I working.

FYI: Win98, PentiumII-233, Diamond Turbo3D

Can someone tell me where I am going wrong?

Thanks mucho.

I did the same thing. the tech support people noted that there is a "zoom box" in the title bar of the resources window. clicking on it expands the window to show the buttons. Try it! Hope you find it. I use a mac and it might be a little different on the windows version.
