Sketcher Tools


New member
I swapped out computers at work and copied over my configs and everything but now I am missing my sketching tools (buttons) I am using 2001. I can still sketch using the drop downs but what a pain. How do I get these back? I done some looking around under Customize Screen but anything to do with the sketcher tools is greyed out.

Thank you

To actually have access to the sketcher tools toolbar you need to be in the sktecher environment, whilst in there access your customise screen menu or right click on the toolbars and you should see that sketcher tools are available.

try copying the file form your old computer.. that should do the work.. the buttons are defined there.

hope it helps
