Yet, another program that’s not vanilla AutoCAD but still relavent.
In AutoCAD Architecture 2011, you may have noticed that after installation, there are no Express Tools. I realized that after I installed the program that I forgot to install the Express Tools. My search for help on the internet was frustrating because most everyone’s advice was to make sure that you load it upon installation. Well I didn’t feel like uninstalling and then reinstalling so I found this very helpful.
In the command line, type MENULOAD <enter>
- 1) click the “Browse” button in the Load/Unload dialog box
- 2) select the “acetmain” .cuix menu file
- 3) click “Open”
- Back in the Load/Unload dialog box, with “acetmain” highlighted in the box click “Load” (Note – it may say “Express” in this dialog box.
When you click load, it will close the dialog box and load that new menu. Be patient and it will load the Express Tools.
