I recently upgraded to Map 3d 2010 to Mapd 3d 2013 and i cannot figure out how to find the commands to insert images or import/export shp files.
I'm running 2013 in "autocad classic" and did so with 2010 as well. 2010 had a menu bar pull down called "Map" where I could insert an image (Image->Insert). There was also in 2010 a toolbar named "Map" that had import shp, export shp and assign coordinate system.
I can't find any of this in 2013. I can't even find the commands in the customization to create my own toolbar. The commands work (mapiinsert, mapimport, mapexport and ADESETCRDSYS) but i can't find them listed anywhere.
So where do I access these in 2013?
Solved! Go to Solution.
you can import SHP-data using command _MAPIMPORT, you can also connect to SHP-data using the FDO-technique via command _DATACONNECT.
You can insert images (georeferenced) using command _MAPIINSERT or again (FDO) by _DATACONNECT.
To get the "Map"-pulldown menu use command _MENULOAD and add the file MAPCLASSIC.CUIX to the already loaded menues.
BTW: using classic style let you miss a lot of functionality, just by selecting an object or activating a layout or ....!
