Missing Publication option


Super Moderator
This is a tough one. The Publication command is definitely part of that workbench. Try File + Exit to close CATIA, and restart CATIA again and see if the command is back.

If not, there are 2 workarounds you can try:

1. click in the white box in the lower-right corner of the CATIA window, and type in: c: publication

2. go to Tools + Customize, click the Commands tab on top, choose the All Commands option in the left panel; then scroll down to the Publication command and double-click on it to start it.

Yes, I am using Publication for a long time, this first time happened. It's been few days since doesn't work and it was restarted several times.

And those two solutions:

1. Unknown command: publication

2. There are commands Publish connection on workpackage document and Publication where used, but Publication no. (Tried these two but nothing)
