View Full Version : Custom pulldown menu not showing
26th Sep 2010, 11:58 pm
When I start Autocad my single custom pulldown menu will not show, however my custom toolbars do show. I have to use cuiload to unload my custom menu then reload.
Why does this happen? Is there a fix?

I think I know the solution in the AutoCAD 2011:
1- issue 'CUI' command at the command prompt.
2- in the 'Customize User Interface' dialog, highlight the workspace you are currently using (at the top of the left area).
3- in the 'Properties' area, under the 'Display' title, in front of line 'Menu Bar' change 'Off' to 'On'.
4- Press 'OK' button.
Now, every thing will be OK.

There is another quick way to get the point, written by ReMark:

The menubar was ticked off - problem is not solved - however I think you are on to something. I tried making a brand new custom menu using the transfer tab, and eventually it has fixed the problem. I have found in the past that custom menus can become corrupted. In this case its best to make a new cuix.
thanks again for helping solving my problem

If you use code to load menus, you will have to manually load all pulldowns.
Check here. (http://www.cadtutor.net/forum/showthread.php?49243-Force-custom-pulldown-to-appear&highlight=menuload) Funny, you also started that thread.

I used code to load my partial custom menu, as a temp fix because every time I open up acad my custom menu would disappear and I had no idea why. Now I more or less know why
that code from that previous post is now superflous.

Sounds like all you need to do is save your workspace when you are done. Problem solved
Check that your icon on your desktop isnt loading another workspace through switches as well.
right click the shortcut and check properties
Usually at the end of the target field it will have something like /p "profile name" /w "Workspace name"
Jsut remove both switches and it will load your last profile and workspace that you had open.
