AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2011 - Will Not Display Ribbon
Feb 11, 2013
I am using Civil3d 2011 and the ribbon will not display. The button seem to work some times but I can't see the ribbon, QAT, or Infocenter. I tried relaoding the CUI files, updated video card drivers, Civil3D patches, even uninstalled and reinstalled Civil3D.
I can turn the ribbon off (ribbonclose) and the ribon area is rendered correctly on the screen. I can turn the menubar on/off and it works just fine.
I tried logging on to the computer as different user, as the administrator, etc. Same error.
I use the Ribbon but now I can't because I can't see it.
I have a cuix setup as an enterprise menu. The drop-down menu loads up fine in my workspace. However, when i go to customize the workspace, and add the ribbon portion of the cuix, it fails to load it. The same enterprise menu loads fine in AutoCAD 2011.
I am trying to create a ribbon of my own, and the code and execution is fine, but I am not able to put the images.
my images are not more than 1 kb in size and are stored in the resources.resources1.... how do I get them to display.
I am trying to work with the available code found in one of the training sessions,
'on one of my subs I am calling this function
'ribBtn.LargeImage = LoadImage("FR.png")
Private Shared Function LoadImage(ByRef ImageName As String) As Imaging.BitmapImage
Dim bi As New System.Windows.Media.Imaging.BitmapImage()
bi.BeginInit() bi.StreamSource = GetEmbeddedResourceStream("MyRibbon_Autocad." & ImageName) bi.EndInit() ' When i debug the code, the code is exiting at this point, i am assuming it is not getting initialised. Return bi End Function
Protected Shared Function GetEmbeddedResourceStream(ByVal ResourceName As String) As Stream Return System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetManifestResourceStream(ResourceName) End Function
I dont see any error, but the ribbon is getting generated but withut any images, just a plane ribbon.
Some how I changed the way my ribbon displays and I can't find the correct termenology to find the solution on the help section. Previously the different function icons displayed with each panel on the ribbon. now only the pannel and title display. Where do i look to change the setting back?

why the Arial narrow font used in dwg files from earlier Acad version won't display as expected in Acad 2011/Windows 7/32 Bit.
All text characters display as a very simple thin lines of constant thickness no matter how close you zoom in. Neither can I create new text using A/Narrow though all other fonts work ok.
Files with this issue were created in WindowsXP on a PC and the problem is surfacing on Win7 running on VM Ware Fusion installed on iMac & therefore preventing me from fully migrate over to Mac as I need to work now and again on old files.
This morning I somehow changed the way the command icons are displayed, so how can I restore the command icons back to the default display. I've tried to figure out where the setting is for the way the icons are displayed, but I haven't been able to reset it back to the default setting.
Here's what the display got changed to, that I want to change back to the default setting.
I used to be able to maximize a display window and then make the image fit the window and finally shrink the window to fit the image. This seems to have changed recently. What are the equivalent keystrokes to accomplish fitting the image to the window and then shrinking the window to the image?
I am trying to customize Autocad 2012 ribbon tab. I can't seem to find how to mimic the small arrow that appears in several of the standard menus. For example, in the 3D Solids - Home Tab, the second panel from the left is "3D Solids Home - Mesh" It has a small arrow in the corner that opens up a preferences dialogue box.
How can I add that arrow to a custom panel with that little arrow so that I can add my command to it?
I saw some source that hinted you could use panel1Panel.AddSlideout() but in the search I do not see any Ribbon API that allows for any slideout functionality?Do you *have* to use the CUI API for this?
We recently installed Civil 3D on our computers. Some people started working in regular AutoCAD first rather than changing the workspace in Civil 3D. They have customized their ribbons. Is there a way we can copy those customizations and apply them to the 2D Drafting & Annotation workspace in Civil 3D?
Lately, whenever Civil 3D crashes, my menus and ribbons would freeze, but my command line still works. It's like the entire user interface locks up. I'm able to workaround the problem by rebooting the computer and then recovering any drawings I had open at the time of the crash.

My IRM officer had to install some sort of update to my AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 package. When I loaded AutoCad, it gave me a message where my ribbon was that "The Ribbon does not have any tabs or panels currently loaded." I was able to fix this with the WSCURRENT command, but when I switch to the "Task-based Geospatial" or the Tool-based Geospatial" module, I cannot get the Ribbon back.
I would like to add a Rebuild Surface command to my Ribbon Modify Panel. I would also like to have it included in my Right Click menu after a surface is selected. There doesn't appear to be any way to initiate a surface rebuild from the command line and I don't find a command for it in the CUI editor.
There does seem to be a rebuild command in the API but I am not a programmer. Is this possible without programming?
I created a Net dll plugin and successfully loaded in Civil 3d 2014 with NetLoad command, the plugin contains a ribbon bar with a ribbon button launching a dialog.., but when To be Loaded automatically (by AutoLoader) at startup it did'nt load, is there any way to make it load automatically at Civil 3d start up
