Q - question

Ribbon for AutoCAD Express Tools 2009.

A - answer By default, AutoCAD 2009 does not contain a ribbon user interface for Express Tools (only the standard menu and toolbars). Thanks to the customized CUI file (by a user GTVic) you can add such ribbon to your AutoCAD 2009:

Ribbon menu for Express Tools

How to add this ribbon?
  1. Download the modified CUI file from www.cadstudio.cz/download
  2. Copy the unzipped acetmain.cui file to your AutoCAD support folder (making a backup copy of the original version) - e.g.:

    C:\Documents and Settings\YOURNAME\Application Data\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2009\R17.2\enu\Support (WinXP)
    or
    C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2009\R17.2\enu\Support (Vista)

  3. Run AutoCAD 2009 and start the CUI command
  4. In the top left panel, switch to the current workspace, so that its contents is displayed in the right panel:

  6. In the left panel, expand the tree "Partial CUI files" > EXPRESS
  7. Check the box by the "Ribbon Tabs" item
  8. In the top right panel, click the "Done" button and end the CUI dialog with OK
