Creating Classic View in AutoCAD 2020

AutoCAD users who have become accustomed to working in the classic view of AutoCAD still prefer this view as it is almost completely customisable and provides the freedom to move and place tools around in a way which the user find more effective and comfortable.

Creating Classic View in AutoCAD 2020

Since the introduction of the ribbon toolbar in version 2020, many users have been asking if the classic view is still available. Yes it is, however the classic view needs to be configured as the standard display by following the steps below.

1. Once AutoCAD is open, type “-TOOLBAR” in the command bar.

2. Then type “STANDARD” and hit Enter on the keyboard, (if you have any custom toolbars created by your company or a 3rd party, you can load these in here at this time).

3. Type “Show” and hit Enter on the keyboard again. This will show the toolbar at the top of the screen. Should you want to display the tools on either side of the screen or the bottom, please also type in the relevant command here.

4. The classic view will appear at the top as a string of tools.

5. To apply the rest of the tools, right-click in the empty space next to the classic view tools and select “AutoCAD”. You can now select the options which you require to customise your AutoCAD.

6. To remove all the ribbons, type the command “RIBBONCLOSE” or select the icon in the menu section 3 times and the ribbons will disappear.
