Missing Steel workspace

I have a big project in ASD 2013, and its almost built so i havent been working with the file for some time now.

Today i needed to check some thing, and the Steel Workspace is not loading. I can get the reinforcement and formwork ribbon space, but not the Steel Ribbon workspace.


However, if i do open my file created with ASD Steel, it opens it with the ASD Start workspace. Why?
I can then select ASD Steel Classic, but when im trying to switch to the ASD Steel Ribbon, all ribbons just disappear. See attachments.

What has happened? I did install the pack a week ago, is there some bug there? I can successfully open some formwork drawing, and all the "special" ribbon tabs are there.


I have checked the CUI loaders, and they seem to be fine. It just confuses me why i can load the Classic, and not the Ribbon.


Any solutions?

Hi, a few months ago a colleague change my workspace triying to do I don´t remember that then I could never recover my workspace, only steel classic was available. My solution: reinstall and don´t let anyone else touch my pc.

Look here on this video.

In 10 second of my recording I started to double click on the menu bar.

It started to change the mode of ribbon displaying.

Maybe try if it works as it should.
