Civil 3D 2017: Restore Missing Style Drop-Down Lists

The two houses “Im Wygärtli” are located in a villa garden on the southern hillside of Hofstetten. The buildings are situated across the slope and are accessed from the north on the upper floor level, which offers a beautiful view towards the first hills of the Jura Mountains. The curved shape of the roof creates its own topography, which connects the two floors and turns the location on a slope into a part of the design concept. On the inside, a single-flight staircase provides the spatial connection between the entrance hall on the upper living floor and the sleeping floor below. The dynamic and open staircase creates a strong reference between the two floors. It also allows daylight into the translucent bathroom cubes - which are built out of glass blocks and divide and structure the lower floor. 

Well, I am currently a (novice) Civil 3D user, and I do a lot of annotating. But I noticed that when I need to change styles for Multileaders and Tables, the drop-down list in the ribbon is missing. The obvious workaround is to use the properties palette. But I am so used to having the drop-down lists in the ribbon.

Luckily there is a system variable to restore these drop-down lists.
By setting the system variable GALLERYVIEW to 0 (zero),

Below quote from the “Help menu”
Controls the type of preview in the ribbon drop-down galleries.
0 (zero) = Displays the list view.
1 = Displays the thumbnail view.

The drawback to turning this off is that you no longer have the new gallery preview functionality. So keep that in mind as you use this variable…
