Hello, this is my first post on HowToAutoCAD.com. My name is John Coon. I’ve been using AutoCAD® and AutoCAD® civil add-on products for some 25 years. The firm I work for, Hoyle, Tanner & Associates, Inc. works on airport construction projects along the eastern United States. I’ve worked mainly on aviation design projects for the past 20 years. I hope to post general Civil 3D® tips.
Last week while using civil 3D 2011 I somehow lost my Settings tab. Well, what I found out was that using the preview somehow makes the setting tab disappear. I’m not sure why, but to get the settings tab back type “SETTING”. This should restore the missing settings tab.
I’ve tried to reproduce the same on my 2012 install but it doesn’t seem to happen.
