AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Menus And Ribbon Frozen After Crash

Oct 28, 2013

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.

Revit :: 2013 Ribbon Menus Misaligned?

May 30, 2012

Granted this is a minor issue, but when Revit 2013 is opened, before actually opening a project file, if I click the add-ins or some of the other menus, they don't appear in the right spot. See attachment as an example.

3ds Max :: Ribbon Crash On Startup - Unknown Property?

Feb 22, 2012

The company I work for has just switched to Max2012 but my machine has a problem with it. I get this error on startup and whenever I open and close the ribbon:

-- Unknown property: "validobjfunc" in #StructolyBoost(undefined:<data>;Public)

It throws open the max script editor window and a message prompt saying the above text. If I press OK, the message goes away. When I close the editor the message comes back and we have a loop!

To get around it I can press OK. Then run script and go to max root > stdplugs > stdscripts >

I looked around and saw people had this error on previous versions of max and the fix was to place a copy of in the startup folder. I tried this and crashes instead on startup. To me from the error given it looks like the ribbon isn't loading a script somewhere that it should do. Placing it in the startup folder makes sense as a temporary fix but in this case it doesn't work. I can run the script after every time max has loaded but this is inconvenient and means I can't do any batch operations which I do quite often.

My PC specs are Win XP x64 SP2, Xeon W3550, 12gb ram, quaddro 3800 and dual screen monitors, I also use a Wacom tablet.

The problem happens in both x64 and x86 installations of 3ds max. We have reinstalled 3ds max countless times. My colleagues have identical computers, hardware wise, haven't had the same issues. We're using SP2 patched 3ds max 2012 too.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Contour Labels Leave Dashes When Frozen?

Aug 1, 2013

I have a drawing with two viewports. One needs to show topography. The other does not. When I freeze the surface layer in the second viewport, the contour lables leave behind a dash. It's on layer 0 so I can't VP freeze without losing other things. 

Where do these dashes come from? They aren't a visible part of the contour label. They only show up when the surface is on a frozen layer. The only purpose they serve is to show where a contour label would be if the surface wasn't frozen.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Change Shortcut Menus

Apr 5, 2013

I am trying to change my shortcut menus. Instead of modifying the current default mode, I am trying to make a new default mode menu and preserve the original. I have made the new menu and named the aliases POP501 & CMDEFAULT. But, when I right click the mouse, civil 3d still references the original default mode menu. How do I change this?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Missing Menus - Menubar Already Set To 1

Sep 11, 2012

We installed Civil 3D onto my supervisor's computer, and I can't find the menus.  It's like they completely vanished.  I set menu bar to 1, and the only menu I get is the Express menu.  I don't get any of the other menus (file, alignments, profiles, grading, etc.).

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Loading Express Menus To Screen

Sep 23, 2013

Just installed 2014 Civil 3D. In  2013, I had created screen menu layout for Lite Users, where I placed the old Standard  and Express Tools Menus along the top of the CAD window, just below the Ribbon. To do this I would Rt. Click in the Grey area (just below the Ribbon and above the CAD window), and then be able to choose menus from the AutoCAD, CIVIL, or EXPRESS menu groups.

In 2014, when I Rt.Clk. in the same area, I'm not given a way to select menus to add - as in 2013. 

Is there another way to manually load the Standard AutoCAD and Express menus to the screen, in addition to the Ribbon, etc?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Menus And Toolbars Won't Show In 2013?

Sep 24, 2012

I finally cleared enough space on my creaky old PC to install 2013 and once again am having trouble with that CUI.

The ribbon is useless to me, partly because it contains nothing relevent (most of the commands I use are legacy) and partly because this creaky PC can't handle it. My usual workspace is set to toolbars (some custom) and menus.

I exported my workspace from 2012 including all the menus and toolbars.

I imported that cuix file into 2013. Everything is there listed as it should be, but when I select the workspace and click apply I have neither toolbars nor menus showing (well I have a tiny toolbar with just new, open and save on it, and another that appears to be related to survey, but none of the ones I want or need.)

What do I have to do to get my menus and toolbars back? they haven't abolished them completely? This PC cannot handle the ribbon and my every request for an upgrade is denied due to politics.

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.

AutoCAD .NET :: Where Are Bits Of Ribbon API To Add Slide Out To Ribbon Panel

Jan 24, 2013

Where are the bits of the Ribbon API to add a slide out to a ribbon panel?

Autodesk.Windows.RibbonControl ribbonControl = Autodesk.Windows.ComponentManager.Ribbon; RibbonTab Tab = new RibbonTab(); ribbonControl.Tabs.Add(Tab); // create Ribbon panels Autodesk.Windows.RibbonPanelSource panel1Panel = new RibbonPanelSource(); panel1Panel.Title = "Panel1"; RibbonPanel Panel1 = new RibbonPanel(); Panel1.Source = panel1Panel; Tab.Panels.Add(Panel1);
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?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Copy Ribbon Customizations From Regular?

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?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: The Ribbon Does Not Have Any Tabs Or Panels Currently Loaded

Aug 17, 2010

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Add Rebuild Surface To Ribbon And Mouse

Dec 19, 2012

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?
