Toolbars Missing

Recommended Posts

I recently had computer crash and had to reload MasterCam. All of my toolbars are missing. I'm not just talking about custom toolbars, but even the default ones. Is it a loading issue or just a setting I'm overlooking?

 

Thanks

Your workspace file appears to be nuked..-

Can you elaborate on what you mean by that? I'm not a computer guy at all. Will that make sense to my IT department, who knows nothing about MasterCam specifically?

 

thanks

Do you have what looks like a crapton of chevrons going across the screen?

If you open the "customize" utility from the 'settings" drop down, you may be able to get it to reset by selecting that function in the upper right of the customize menu.

I've been all through the customize window from the settings drop down. I don't see any default toolbars to choose from and it won't let me create any.

I don't see "Load Workspace" under the settings drop down.

 

 

You don't see this?

Try right-clicking in the toolbar area and see if you have the "load workspace" option

When I right click these are the only options I'm given.

No. I'm sorry. I should have mentioned I'm using X6

 

If you're running McamX6 there's no such file as workspace. Your mtb file got jacked.

Here is my mtb file, there has been a bit of customization but if you replace the mastercam.mtb file in your "mymcamx6" config folder with this one you should get yer icons back.

mastercam.zip

Select "Load toolbar state."

That didn't seem to work. I restarted my computer but there's still no toolbars to be found.

 

Select "Load toolbar state."

 

It won't actually let me click on it. All of the others shown are valid options, but not that one.

Are your system files loaded in the documents location of your computer?

Yes. They are in "My Documents".

 

And I had a typo, I meant to say it DIDN'T seem work.

 

Thanks everyone for trying to help

dump your config file and let MCAM rebuild it on startup.

 

It looks like there are (2) of them in this folder. Should there be 2? Should I remove both?

 

Thanks

mcamx.config = inch

mcamxm.config = metric

 

Do you use inch or metric?

 

Both will be re-created if you delete/move them.

So now when I close mastercam, it shuts off all of my toolbars. Where's the setting to change this?

 

Thanks

 

Bump. Anyone?

Do you still have your McamX6 install files?

You may need to do a complete uninstall, clean out the Windows folders and clean out the registry keys.

Then reinstall the software as a clean install.

I would only save your custom machine / control defs, posts and tool libraries, do not use your current config files.

 

Any reason why you haven't installed the latest version of the software?
