Toolbars and Menus Missing in AutoCAD LT 2013 for Mac

I intalled AutoCAD LT 2013 for Mac and the Menu Bar (not a ribbon) and the Tool Bars are missing.  When it initiated all of the UI tools were missing, ei command line, status bar, layer, properties, references, etc.  I manually added those components through commands.  But, the Menu bar and Tool Bars are NO Where to be found.  Even when I type in "TOOL" nothing happens.  In addition, after using this for a week, I have crashed it 12 times usually in the middle of a command.  Hot grip use crashes it for example.  

 

Has anyone else encountered these problems?  Found a solution?

 

Thank you!

Hi Angela,

 

Regarding to the menu/tool palette missing, could you please try the steps below:

click AutoCAD LT 2013 menu > Preferences > go to tab Applications > click Reset Application Options button

 

About the crashes, did you send out the crash report? If so, please let me know what email you input when sent the report.

 

And please let me know the version of your AutoCAD. You can get it by click menu AutoCAD LT 2013 > About AutoCAD LT 2013


Thanks,
Wei

I am also having the same problem. I have tried resetting the application options. It seems to make no difference. I have no menu and no tools in the tool palette.

resetting the options didn't work for me. It's still unusable.

If reset does not work, maybe there are some permission problems. 

 

Please try this solution:
