MAPIMPORT Command in Ribbon?

I have copied over the 'providers.xml' file in order to get the MAPIMPORT command working from the command line. However, how do I get it back in the 'OUPUT - MAP DATA TRANSFER' Ribbon? I have opened the CUI and do not see MAPIMPORT in the command list at all (??) (Technically I am using Civil 3d 2014 but under the 'Planning and Analysis' Workspace).

Hi Barry,


Thanks for your post.


You probably know this already, but the location of the Map Import button in Planning and Analysis in Civil 3D 2014 is as follows:



In regards to the Map Export button - it unfortunately does not exist at all in the ribbon of AutoCAD Map or Civil 3D 2014. (I logged DE7865 to bring this to Development's attention.)


You can add one using the CUI though. I created a short video to demonstrate this. I hope it helps.

Thanks Phil.


Yes, I am aware of the location of the MAPIMPORT but would like to have it exist along side the MAPEXPORT icon for ease of use. (I currently have that in a custom toolbar in 2013 but need to have this installed on the ribbon for other users as we migrate to 2014).


I'm sorry about the confusion but it was the MAPEXPORT command that was the concern and it should have appearred in the post subject line instead of  MAPIMPORT.


The MAPEXPORT command and icon were included in Civil 2013. Either by design or omission it has been taken out in 2014. I would sincerely hope it gets re-added to the ribbon AND the command list within the CUI by way of a hotfix or service pack.

The help files states "In the Planning And Analysis Workspace, click Output tabMap Data Transfer panelMap 3D Export. " however on my install of 2014 Map3D there is only 4 options none as stated in the help.
