    Default Missing Icon Menu Electrical

    I am a new user attempting to navigate my first tutorial.

    The icon menu is missing at the left side of the screen, although I do have an icon menu wizard in the middle.

    I have searched the FAQ and did not see this issue mentioned.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Default Re: Missing Icon Menu Electrical

    I'll answer my own question in case anyone else has the same problem. When AutoCad 2017 installs it only installs a few basic symbols and no icon menu. Symbols may still be placed on a drawing by right clicking a wire and then a dialog comes up that allows a symbol to be selected. The big secret is that AutoCad 2017 is not fully installed when it is installed. Close the program and go into the windows control panel. Select uninstall/change programs. Select AutoCad Electrical 2017, but do not uninstall. The install features dialog comes up that lets one add IEEE Symbols, IEC Symbols, and symbols for different manufacturers. When AutoCad 2017 is restarted and the schematic tab is selected the Icon menu magically appears.
