CUSTOM TOOLBARS

463 Views, 4 Replies
06-01-2010 05:02 PM
Prior to ACA 2010/2011 I customized three columns of icons that were grouped according to the task that I was performing at the time (drawing, dimensioning, annotating, etc.) and labeled them Toolbar 1, 2, and 3. It was very effective and life was good. Along came 2010 and 2011 and I can't get them onto my screen/drawing area. When I open the Customization tab they are in the All Customization Files but once again all that I'm doing is looking and wishing. For my purposes the toolbars work better than the ribbons. I have tried some of the suggestions that have appeared in the ACA Discussion Group but they don't seem to apply to my toolbars. Any suggestions other than "live with it"?

Post your custom CUI file with the toolbars.

How are you trying to make them visible? In CUI, pick all cui files, then
choose the workspace you want to customize. In the right pane pick the
customize workspace button. In the left pane, navigate to the toolbars you
want to display and check them. Then pick done on right pane and apply and
close the cui. Works fine for me in 11.

I think that I probably haven't made my dilema clearly enough so I am attaching a photo of my computer screen. Look to the left of the screen and you will see the three columns of icons that I labled Toolbars 1, 2, and 3. They appear in the All Customization Files but none of the suggestions that you have offered seem to work or, just maybe, I am too dumb to understand. Anyhow, thanks for your help and if this photo sheds any additional light on the subject and you can respond to it I will greatly appreciate it.

Ray,
I think we all know what toolbars look like so that helps the discussion
little.

Do you know how to use the cui command? If so, follow the directions in my
post. Otherwise, contact your vendor.
