    It is telling you you need to click on layout 1. Layout 1 is your base layout. You have to be in layout 1 to set the blocks and work on them. The language they use is not real plain. I don't know why they can't use turn tool instead of rotate and block tool instead of set tool. that is how I think of them. It makes more sense to me!

    And if they are going to call it a base layout why can't they call it that in the button so their words match up! Less confusing that way in my opinion.

    Hi Verna... I was getting this same message and was on layer 1 and it still wouldn't work. This is what I did and haven't had anymore problems with it. In EQ5,
    Go to File, click on Preferences, a box will pop up. Look at the tabs and click on Layout Options. You have several boxes that have check marks in them, uncheck the following boxes, Prevent motifs from being set on layer 1 and prevent uncolored drawing from being set on layer 1 then click OK and try it again. That should fix the problem. Hope this helps!! This is what worked for me on Tutorial 1.

    Purchase Get Well Cards, scribble different signatures, put them around the house so when someone comes over they will not notice the dust, instead they will see the cards!

    Rhonda when you say the following, can you tell me where are we suppose to find the word NEW at?
    I see Easy Draw but not really sure about New.

    Then click on New - Easy Draw.

    Thanks so much for all this help, it really is helping me.

    ok you must be talking about 6 or 7 cause EQ5 doesn't have that.
