I just installed DraftSight.  It crashes when I click on the screen for no reason, when I click on the screen to select a zoom window, and other times.  It doesn't mind if I click the screen to select a point in linear dimensioning.

Is there a forum in the DraftSight website itself?  I couldn't find one.

I went to that link and got something called "swym" where I was supposed to read a bunch of articles on how to become a "swymmer" and build a community of "friends"...

I want to fix a problem with a technical drawing program, and that link sent me to a facebook wanna-be.  

I suspect that my operating system, Windows Vista, is the real problem.  I have never heard a complaint about DraftSight, if I'm the first then no wonder there's no forum for troubleshooting it.

Yeah, it's an awful site to navigate, but there are sections called iQuestions and Activity where people post and answer questions.
