Big sig you've got there, bolton.

 

Is it all necessary? Not being critical at all, just that it will always take up a lot of room.

 

Do what Tiger suggests.

 

Tools > Options > Profiles and see if you have something saved there. If not try to reload >

As tiger said, check your profile, and the search paths.

If you know 100% that no-one has changed anything on your machine, moved stuff, installed anything,etc, from the last time that it worked, then check the Workspace that you are using (from the workspace toolbar).

 

Also, do you have AutoCAD, or AutoCAD Architecture? If you have Architecture, then note that you can have AutoCAD 2008 with it too, so check that you have opened Architecture....hope this makes sense.

 

EDIT: Ignore the last para, have just seen that you have LT. Sorry.

 

Cheers

Reset is what you should try, and best of luck, mate.

does your work store backups etc?

 

our work backups every night on the main server, so literally anything that has been done that could affect any of our work can be brought back, well most things

The backup is very unlikely to help you though.

The best thing to do would be set it up how you like it, then make sure that you save the current workspace.

That way, if it changes again, you can just go back to your workspace without having to mess about with toolbars, menus, etc.

could simply be a case of re-establishing everything. I had to go through this process every year on upgrade time. Doesn't take too long, about 2 hours. I also found it very convenient to get a piccie of the set-up I want, just as a reference when re-establishing my acad set-up.
