Q - question

The Ribbon does not have any tabs or panels currently loaded.

A - answer AutoCAD displays no ribbon (an empty top menu) and reports the error "The Ribbon does not have any tabs or panels currently loaded".

It is usually caused by a missing or damaged menu definition file - CUI or CUIx (e.g. ACAD.cuix or C3D.cuix) or an improperly set workspace.

A missing CUI file can be loaded with the CUILOAD command. A damaged CUIx file can be restored using the CUI command - right-click on the customization file name (top left) - e.g. "ACAD" - and from its context menu choose "Reset":

Reset CUI (CZ version)

Confirm the dialog with OK.

To select a proper workspace use the gear icon in the bottom bar or enter the WORKSPACE command and choose Setting.
