X9 - how to display the status bar ?

Recommended Posts

SOLVED - see below for solution

 

its been awhile since I've tried to work on a project

 

there used to be a status bar at the bottom of the screen that showed what the chosen object was

and what the active layer was and the coordinates etc

 

I can't find how to get that status bar to display ?

 

what have I forgotten ?

View menu, and make sure the window is maximized.

This is in X12, but maybe it was there in X9:

Didn't know it was in that menu. Thanks Eric.

thanks, but I already verified that was set

 

no status bar in X9 or in X12

 

For X12 I have no Edit toolbar ?

I select an object and it doesn't show ?

 

I watched the basic "user interface" video and they describe them but not how to display them ?

SOLVED

 

I called tech support 

 

my screen display was too large and the status bar and edit toolbar were hiding "off screen"

 

in the upper right are the minimize, restore down, and close buttons

she had me click on the "restore down" and I could see the status bar and the edit toolbar

click it again and the screen size adjusted and the tool bars remained visible

 

I suggested that they add this to the help guide and to the basic "User Interface" training video

 

Oh well, learn something new every day :)
