I'm a right clicker. Contextual ribbon tabs pop up every time I touch an object. They require additional clicks and mouse movements. I don't want them. How can I stop them? I just want the default ribbon. I was able to do this on a previous version but now I forget how. Version upgrades do not bode well for old people.
When I try to access a hatch pattern from the Hatch Creation Ribbon Contextual Tab, C3D stops working and I have to force the program to quit. I've tried repairing the installation, which didn't work. I've also compeltely uninstalled and then reinstllaed the program, and have applied the Service Pack 1 update, but the problem persists.
However, accessing a hatch pattern after using the "Hatch" command from the command does seem to work.
I would like to edit the dwt file extension in explorer to add an option in the contextual menu' to open it in acad for editing it. At the moment I can only open it, but it actually opens a copy.So I would like two options:
OPEN a copy (default behaviour) EDIT the template (optional)
I hate the need to open a copy and then go through all the process of "save a copy as dwt".I have win7 - LibreOffice has similar options for their templates (new/open).
How do I disable the layout Tools Contextual tab in Civile3d 2012 so that is does not become active every time I change to Paper Space. I would like the ribbon to stay focused on the HOME tab when in paper space.
With PR4 the right click contextual menu for the timeline seems to have been re-arranged to accomodate new features.
As a result, when you right-click a timeline element to remove all effects you have to move your pointer up through a list of about 15 items to reach the "Remove Effect" command.
There also appears not to be an assignable keyboard shortcut to remove all effects from a selected timeline element. (apart from Option+Clicking on the effect in the effect bar which just removes a single item).
Would it not make sense to have this remove effect command at the bottom so that it appears right near your pointer when you activate the menu?A keyboard shortcut binding would be ideal as I realise the contextual menus are probably in a state of constant change at the moment.
I was having trouble with the edit sketch options coming up when I initiated a command that needed it. I upgraded to Update 2 and It seemed to fix it. But now it's happening when when I select a floor. I'm not getting the option to edit the floor. The context options don't match what I have selected. What is the problem and how can I fix this?
I am running Windows 8. I have used multiple .NET Framework removal/repair tools, tried uninstalling all versions of .NET and reinstalling 4.0 from its official Microsoft standalone installer. However, every time I try to install 4.0, I recieve a message stating that it or a higher version of .NET is already installed.
Upon further research, I was informed that the .NET 4.5 Framework is an integral part of Windows 8 that cannot be uninstalled.
I cannot access any of the tools I need to in the program, so it is basically rendered useless (don't tell me to just use shortcuts because that is extreemely tedious and painful to make work properly, ive tried it). I have also thought about just installing Revit 11' and using that, but it is no longer available from Autodesk!
Just installed CAD 2012 LT...how can i get the array window we use to have on previous editions to work again on this edition? When i used to select array on the ribbon, a window was opening, and i choose what i wanted to do...but now,
I am using ACAD MEP 2012. While i was working on a drawing my AutoCAD session locked up and terminated the program, not thinking anything of it i just restarted ACAD and started working on the same drawing. I noticed the ribbon looks different and now all the command buttons are not showing up under the tabs they are ALL in dropdown windows now. I don't know what happened to the original ribbon setup but it is definitely not what it used to be. Attached below are pics of what i am referring to. The first picture is what it used to look like, the second and third pictures are what they look like now.
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.
I am having PDS Ultimate 2012 and working on inventor. when i open a file or open a new template ribbon freezes means menu bar doesn't work properly,if i change the ribbon appearance it doesn't update also i cannot switch between the menu bar tabs and if i turn on the visibility of the datum planes it doesn't show on the screen.But when i refresh the windows everything works sometimes. i have installed SP1 and even repaired inventor.

The ribbon layout has changed by itself so that it now displays smaller icons and I have to click on drop down arrows to access sub menus - I had it correct displaying the icons with the sub menus next to them but it seems to have changed.
I have worked through ALL the options available in the ribbons appearance etc. and this doesn't change them.
