2002 Express tools Revision Cloud

Does anyone know how to make the Revision Cloud button to be it's own separate button so I can dock it in a permanent on screen toolbar other than the toolbar it is on. I've tried everything I can think of. Thanks

Tools-->Customize-->Toolbars-->Commands tab, pick "User defined" from the Categories list. from the Commands list on the right, click and drag "User Defined Button" into the drawing window (this will create a toolbar with a single button.) right click on the REVLOUD button, select "Copy Button Image" and paste it into your new button. with the customize window still open, click once on the original REVCLOUD button to open its button properties and copy and paste the name, description and macro into your new button. (NOTE: the new toolbar will, by default, be placed in the ACAD menu group. if you want to associate the toolbar with a different group, just create a blank toolbar under the selected group and drag the "User Defined Button" into the toolbar.)

Here's another tip - create your own personal menu group first. There are
good instructions for this in the help files. Basically create a file in
notepad called MYMENU.MNS (where "mymenu" is whatever you want). In that
file put this: ***MENUGROUP=MYMENU Then load it like you would any other
menu. Now when you follow dviator's instructions select MYMENU as a menu
group, not ACAD. IMHO, it's never a good idea to muck with the standard
AutoCAD menus. It's been known to have a domino effect that can screw up
all your menus...
