I just installed AutoCAD 2012 on my work PC and all the standard AutoCAD toolbars are unavailable. I have the express toolbars but none of the standard AutoCAD ones such as Draw, Modify, Dimension... Its like the file containing these toolbars was lost or never installed. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program but no go. Any suggestions?
The rest of my company is waiting on me to get this resolved before they all update to 2012, so the quicker I can get any assistance the more appreciative I'll be. Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Tried that after 1st install. There was nothing listed under the AutoCAD dropdown which gave me the impression that the file was never loaded correctly.
Look for the popup, see attached. You have to right click closer to the drawing area. It was a little tricky in the beginning before there were no toolbars, a lot easier after you bring up one because you can right click just behind the new toolbar inserted.
If that doesn't work type -TOOLBAR and the command prompt and hit enter, then type LAYOUTS, hit enter and then S for show. A toolbar show pop up, move to position wanted. You can then right click like I mentioned above.
WORKSPACE command, make the CLASSIC workspace your current. That brings up toolbars.
If not an option, you are either not running plain AutoCAD (verticals are ribbon only), or you "migrated" a profile that is corrupt and you need to reload the default one in R2012.
I have the same problem in Architecture 2013, I do not have option for Classic workspace anywhere...
Please, help how to find and get all the toolbars used to have in classic cad!!!
