Below is the image of my ribbon after I begin the edit boundary command for a floor slab. For some reason the ability to finish or cancel the edit mode disappears and I'm unable to close out of the command without undoing everything I've done. Has anyone else expereienced this? and if so is there a solution? Thanks
Solved! Go to Solution.
On a workset enabled project, try saving locally ( the black save button at upper right part of screen.)
This will sometimes restore the Finish Sketch dialog box.
Also, try View>User Interface and check/uncheck/check all of the boxes to "refresh" the UI.
Did it work? ( did the finish sketch box come back?)
I'm having a similar issue with one install of Revit 2012. Here is the process:
1: Create a floor (for instance).
2: Create something else, or press Escape a couple times.
3: Select the floor object.
4: The Modify ribbon tab should change to show the "Edit Boundary" button, but instead is still showing the tools for creating lines:
Whatever I do in Revit, the Modify tab shows the previous state, not the current tool I need. It affects all users on this machine. Ribbon has been reset via VBS script, Revit has been uninstalled/reinstalled, Quadro drivers have been changed, updated, rolledback, and Direct3D acceleration has been turned off and on. Nothing has gotten the Modify tab to work properly.
I can either cycle the ribbon state (from full to tabs, for instance) and the menu is then correct, albeit a different size. I can then keep cycling the menus to refresh the Modify tab, or I can Ctrl-left-click drag the tab to another position, and the correct menu appears.
Very frustrating and impacts productivity. Anyone else have this, or am I the only person on the planet? All other Autodesk apps work perfectly fine, the only issue is with Revit.
Jenni, I have just the same problem. Sadly still no idea how to fix it. I try to reinstall too. Installed SP2 and still no change. It is very time consuming to close and open ribbon every time you change your tools. If anyone know solution please share it.
I was disappointed to find that 2013 has the same problem. I have to minimize and show ribbon to refresh the content specific buttons. Anyone have a solution?
