How can I replace the ribbon with the drop down menues like in its previous versions? Please dont tell me to switch to a different workspace that does not keep my buttons where I want them.

Or look at the lower right corner. You should see a drop'down' button there to switch workspaces. I believe the default workspace is "2d drafting & annotation" so that is what you should see there at the moment. Clicking it should enable you to select the "AutoCAD classic" workspace.

IIRC... Ribbonclose & Menubar

That worked here.

 

MikeP: to enable the dropdown menu's try the LISP expression (setvar "MENUBAR" 1). Could be variables / commands introduced in 2010, although that does not seem likely

Unknown commands? :?

Are you sure you typed them in correctly?

 

RIBBON displays the Ribbon

RIBBONCLOSE closes the Ribbon

 

MENUBAR = 1 displays the drop down menus

MENUBAR = 0 hides the drop down menus

 

Do you have all available updates and hotfixes installed for 2009?

 

You may need to run a repair on your installation if you are getting an "Unknown Command" message.
