I am looking to import an Inventor file and create views of it in AutoCAD 2013, However this is what appears under my Layout ribbon.

Hi,

 

what happens if you right-click into the grey area and look to the section "Show panels" ... are all on (like in the screenshot):

 

 

Or have you loaded the menu from AutoCAD 2012?

Nope, they are not there. This was a fresh install a few days ago. No migration from autocad 2012. I just installed Autocad and Inventor 2013 suite with no prior copies.  I attached a picture of my screen.

Hi,

 

I have not installed a suite, so maybe there are other menu-structures defined, I don't know that.

If you start _CUI, what's the name if the main-cui and what file (including path) is loaded?

Hi,

 

>> C:\Users\sherman\appdata\roaming\autodesk\autocad lt 2013 - english\r18\enu\support\acadlt.cuix

There is something not ok, your menu points to a menu from AutoCAD LT, not for the full AutoCAD (that is part of a suite).

Hi,

 

oops ... and more important:

>> C:\Users\sherman\appdata\roaming\autodesk\autocad lt 2013 - english\r18\enu\support\acadlt.cuix

It points to anything older than 2013 as R18 is valid for 2010

PS: this is my path: C:\Users\alfred\appdata\roaming\autodesk\autocad 2013 - english\r19.0\enu\support\acad.cuix

Hi,

 

>> So how would i update/repair

first search if you have the folder that I showed (within your user-directory instead of "alfred" in my path).

If you find then a file called ACAD.CUIX within this folder start command _MENU and load this menu-file.

So I went to a co-worker and took at look at his Autocad. It is also 2013, and his pathing is correct.  C:\Users\tsevern\appdata\roaming\autodesk\autocad 2013 - english\r19\enu\support\acad.cuix

And he has the same problem.
