How to Lock Toolbar Location

Good Morning.


In Civil 2013 is there a way to lock where you drag the tool bars? I work on dual screen and drag my properties and layers manager over to the second screen. Randomly they will jump back from the right screen to the left screen on program restart.


Also when I open the grading toolbar and drag it over to the right screen some commands, such as breaking a feature line, will cause it to jump back into the middle of the left screen right then.


Is there anyway to lock the toolbars to where they were dragged last?

yes, there is the sysvar LOCKUI (>>>details<<<) that can lock/unlock parts of the ui, you find also a small symbol in the lower statusbar (right side) that you can use to control the sysvar, right click the symbol to get the options:
