I noticed that in all the videos I watch everyone has a green menu bar at the top of the program. I don’t have that on my program. There was an old post about this that suggested dpi settings and video card issues. I don’t think I want to hack up my video settings but I would like to see the menu bar.
Older versions of the program (Carbide Create) had a green menu bar. More recent versions don’t. For example, version 514 looks like this on windows:
edit: Welcome, Perry!
The functionality from the green menu bar has moved to the main menus.
As @Gerry notes, newer versions use a more standard toolkit.
I’d suggest updating to 520 though — the new auto-tracing feature is amazing.
