    When I go to my palette and pick Elevation mark, I get a error message that says

    A style or definition could not be located for this tool
    please check the tool settings for the possible causes
    -location drawing is not available
    -style or definition does not exist in current drawing

    1. What am I missing here. ???
    2. Where do I find the "Tool Settings"
    3. style or definition does not exist in current drawing ???

    1. Sounds like you may be missing a file.
    2. Put your cursor over the symbol on the tool palette. Right Click. Choose Properties. Under Source File you'll see the drawing it is looking for (likely its Annotation - Imperial.dwg) . My guess is that its been moved or modified.
    3. I believe this means its not in your current drawing to pull it from.

    If all this is correct, then you'll need a new copy of that drawing its trying to reference and likely everything else will be fine. If you can't find it on your computer or AutoCAD CD let us know, likely someone will be able to provide it for you... we just need to be sure of what version of AutoCAD you have and what file its looking for.

    me too have same problem. Other tools are working except wall, door & window.
    Please share the missing files. I am using ADT 2006. And, also tell me default saving location of these files.

    under options, go over to AEC Content tab and check the path under 'Tool Catalog Content Root Path' That path should be wherever the palette files are saved.
