Importing custom tabs from AutoCAD 2011 to AutoCAD 2012's ribbon?

Hello,

 

I am changing from AutoCAD 2011 to 2012. I created a custom tab in AutoCAD 2011 with custom panels that had all the buttons I use most often. Despite saving the workspace and the profile as I was told, it hasn't shown up in 2012.

 

How can I get my custom tab to show up in the 2012 ribbon, without recreating it from scratch?

 

Thanks

So the tab is not even in 2012?

Can it be found in CUI command in 2012?

Or were you hoping it would just magically appear on it's own?

What was all that workspace saving about then?

 

Moving menu customizations is not hard: CUI command has a TRANSFER tab, on the left side will be the current menu, on the right side you can bring up your 2011 CUIx file with the tabs and customizations in it.

Then simply drag and drop from right to left. Now the 2011 content you desire is in 2012.

How did you move the TAB from 2011 to 2012?

I (it) didn't. And that is the problem.
