Ribbons Structure and Flexibility

Top  Previous  Next

Possibilities for structuring ribbons greatly exceed Desktop shortcuts.

You can quickly change ribbons view, in just two clicks switching from tools panel into menu, in two presses group buttons, also quickly collapse dozens of buttons into a single one with a drop down list, etc.

Thanks to that you acquire enormous power in organizing your work and information on your computer.

create and populate groups;

delete a group;

unite tools into drop down lists;

disintegrate drop down lists (move internal buttons outside);

present drop down lists as menu or buttons panel;

present the entire ribbon as menu, as a fixed panel or a drop down panel;

create drop down sublists in drop down lists;

change drop down areas on buttons (the entire button as drop down, or the right/bottom area);

create delimiters;

create delimiters with labels (vertical grouping);

unite button groups into sequences (such buttons are enclosed into a common border for light grouping);

change ribbons height;

ping ribbons on top or bottom of the window;

temporarily hide buttons;

temporarily hide ribbons;

add new ribbons with a single click;
