AutoCAD 2014 drawing tabs and command line missing

Morning All,

 

The last three times I have started my ACAD 2014 the drawing tabs are gone. Any suggestions?

 

Also, my command line is missing and all I see when I hit my F2 is my previous entries except for the current entry. Any suggestions on this one?

 

Any help would be great!

Drawing tabs (file tabs) are controlled by entering FILETAB and FILETABCLOSE at the command line.

The command line is toggled on and off with the Ctrl+9 keyboard shortcut.

I"m not sure why they suddenly disappeared on you, but hopefully they'll stick around after getting them back on.

FILETAB worked - thank you.

CTRL + 9 did not work. . .

The command line controls for the command line visibility are COMMANDLINE and COMMANDLINECLOSE.

I would recommend manually saving your workspaces rather than saving them automatically because it's too easy to inadvertently save unwanted changes, as may have happened here.

 

Your command line may be off-screen.  If so, you should be able to restore it to it's original position in the CUI.  Select the workspace, then expand "Palettes" and select "Command Line" in the right panel, then edit it's properties in the lower right panel (Show = Yes / Orientation = Bottom)

 

Here's a demo -->  http://www.screencast.com/t/kvsIb70dSk

going into the CUI was the trick!
Thank you.
