AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Maximize Screenspace / Get Menu Bar Back And Loose Ribbon

Sep 17, 2013

I've never cared for the Ribbon.  IMO it takes up a lot of valuable screen real estate and spreads out commands I find to useful to be grouped together across multiple menus.  I did like how the Menu Bar was laid out in LDD because all the commands for anything I could do with alignments, for example, were all in one place.  

Here's how I set up C3D to have an UI more like LDD:

1.  Show the Menu Bar: click on the dropdown menu button on far right of the Quick Access Toolbar (at the upper left of the C3D screen) and select Show Menu Bar.  Old familiars like File, Edit, Points, Alignments, etc should be visible.

2.  Get rid of the Ribbon:  type RIBBONCLOSE into the command line and ta-da!

GIMP :: How To Get Maximize Button Back

Nov 16, 2013

I just love GIMP.

But imagine the huge dismay felt when this dedicated user updated GIMP to 2.8.6 and found there was no maximise button any more! Is there anyway to get this button back??

I use it regularly as part of my work-flow, and now I find this once fantastic app pretty much rendered useless to me.

Not having the maximise button also doesn't allow me to see the bottom part of the program's window, so the bottom slider is useless to me.

Not having this pretty much puts my budding photography on-hold, as I resent having to pay an extortionate amount for Gimp's closest 'worthy' competition. That, and photosh*t doesn't play nice with Linux anyway.

Also, I don't have the ready cash to rush out and buy a larger monitor (for a laptop thats screen size works well for all other apps) just to use Gimp.

Using Ubuntu 13.10.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Ribbon Disappeared / How To Get It Back

Aug 27, 2009

I've been trying to incorporate my menus and toolbars into the ribbon environment. I skipped acad 09 so this hasn't been fun. I used the transfer feature in the cui environment to get everything I wanted. I go to 2d environment to check that everything is there and it appears to be there. I load my cui and I get my icons and menus but no ribbon. I have a big message that says, "The Ribbon does not have any tabs or panels currently loaded." I type ribbon to load, but nothing.

I've now messed with this enough that even with the base acad.cuix file I still don't have the ribbons.

AutoCAD LT :: Make A Change Ribbon Contents It Goes Back To Default Top Position

Mar 12, 2012

just upgraded from 2004 to 2012.  Wow, sure looks different.I'm playing around with the ribbon & don't know how to stop an annoying behavior.  I position the ribbon locked to the side of my display because I have a wide screen & if docked to the top I end up with a very wide, skinny drawing area.  when ever I make a change tp the ribbon contents it goes back to the default top position, after which I have to relocate it again.  Is there a way to get it to remember the previous position of the ribbon?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Ribbon Menu Justified To Right

Oct 22, 2011

I have switched computers from my laptop to my workstation.  My laptop has an Nvidia card FX2500M, and my workstation has an ATI Fire V5600.

I work with the ribbon minimised to tabs.  On my laptop, when I click a tab the ribbon opens directly below the tab (i.e. justified to the left of the screen); but on my workstation, the ribbon opens below the tab but justified to the right of the screen.  This means I have to move the cursor back and forth across the screen.

Is there a Reg setting to change the justified back to the left of the screen?

When the ribbon minimise is on other settings (e.g. minimise to panel tiles) the ribbon is justified to the left side of the screen.

Inventor Pro 2012 with SP1.

AutoCAD LT :: Array 2012 No Contextual Ribbon Menu?

Jun 1, 2012

new Array command in 2012...

On a clean install without importing the users settings, the ribbon changes to to the array menu when the command is selected but if we import settings from a previous release it doesnt work.

All the other contextual menus like text editor and hatch menus work fine, seems to be just Array (I guess because its the only new one?)

Is there a way to get it working? I checked CUI and it appears under both Tabs and contextual Tab States, the settings seem the same as the others that are working?

AutoCad 3D :: After 3D Extrude Loose Original Polyline?

Feb 6, 2013

I draw a closed polyline and then I extrude it. But when I want to see the 2d plane and hide the 3d version I cannot go back as the polylines are extruded and everything is disappearing. Should I draw a second poly over the first, then create a new layer, name it for example 3dpolywalls ? Is this the most common technique? Or there is a more efficient way ?

AutoCad :: Loose Grouping When Using Copy Clip

Feb 12, 2013

So we have this custom construction note routine. It creates all the notes with station, offset, blah blah , and it is all together as once piece. So if you move the note group the leader will stay attached to it and it holds all of the label properties.

When I copy clip, wblock, insert these key notes into another drawing they are no longer a group and there is no way to move them all together.

This has created a lot of extra work and moving stuff around that does not seem necessary.How can I copy or move construction key notes from one drawing to another without losing the group properties. I have tried WBlock and making sure the grouping is on when I copy and paste/insert them but it still doesn't work.

Oh and we are running a 64bit 2013 with the carlson suite application,

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Customize Ribbon Panel In Ribbon Tab

Nov 28, 2012

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?

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 attached a screen shot of the ribbon area.
