I am trying to save some tools that I have created into the default toolbar layout that is present when ArcMap 10.1 is launched.
It is possible to change the arrangement of toolbars, add new ones and even add in existing tools, but any custom tools I set in the commands category "geoprocessing tools" are gone and do not appear in the toolbar. How can I save these custom tools to the default layout that appears on startup?
Saving a document with the custom tools added and reopening it preserves the tools, but opening a template (10.1 mxd) containing the tools, then opening and older document will cause the tools to disappear. Oddly enough, any other changes made after the custom tools were added are preseved.
I have upgraded to 10.2 and this has still not been fixed. I did not see this issue in the 10.21 changelog so I doubt it will address it. For those interested in this issue, I have started a forum post on the ESRI forums here.
