View Full Version : Tool Bar hidden or off screen somewhere
2009-02-18, 08:31 PM
I have a tool bar that wont show its face and I suspect its just off the edge of the screen, maybe.
In this case, its my Properties fly-out toolbar, a rather important one to me.
I kinda remembering there was a setting or comand somewhere that would center a tool bar upon request but cant seem to locate that.
If anyone could advise me on this matter it could lower my stress level a notch or two.
Thank you all

Run the -TOOLBAR command, then specify the name of the toolbar, then enter "F" for float, then enter the screen coordinates at which you want it to appear. Try 100,100 to be safe.
Enter toolbar name or [ALL]: UCS
Enter an option [Show/Hide/Left/Right/Top/Bottom/Float] <Show>: F
Enter new position (screen coordinates) <0,0>: 100,100
Enter number of rows for toolbar <1>: 1

That worked great for my tool bars however, I should have said tool pallet and not tool bar, my bad.
The tool pallet is still not accessable for me despite this great solution you offered.
Do you have another approach or can anyone else offer any advice?

Have you tried editing the properties of this palette as they are defined in the CUI file (in the workspace)?
If you can't get that to work, close AutoCAD, browse to C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Autodesk\AutoCAD 200x\Rxx.x\enu\Support\Profiles and rename FixedProfile.aws to something else (don't delete it), then launch AutoCAD and run the Properties command.
