Civil3D Zero Screen–No Vault Option


Just a quick note… For those that might be using Vault already, this will not be news. For those contemplating / testing Vault for your firms, this will help you past a stumbling block.

First, the issue… Some firms like to have Civil3D startup at what’s called the zero screen as shown above. It’s a clean place to start your work effort. You’ve got a list of Recent Documents front and center. You’ve got templates available to start new drawings, and so on. What you don’t have is:

  • Open File from Vault
  • Open Sheet Set from Vault

    These two options are only available from the application menu; yes the big blue A in the upper left corner of Civil3D. When no drawings are open, you will only see Open File from Vault available.

As soon as you have a single drawing open, you now see both options; to open a File and a Sheet Set from Vault.

You should now be able to continue your evaluation!
