AutoCAD Civil 3D provides toolbars you can use to quickly access the transparent commands.
The two transparent command toolbars are turned on (displayed) by default when using the Civil 3DCivil workspace.
Other toolbars that were in previous versions of AutoCAD Civil 3D are no longer available. The commands on those toolbars are now available from the ribbon.
