Hints and Tips - Customise Ribbon UI

Last month we looked at the new MindGenius Version 3 Ribbon User Interface, which is the same style as Microsoft Office applications.

The rationale of grouping logical features and functionality together means for most tasks within MindGenius, it is easier to access key functionality. However, for existing users, who may have an established list of features that they regularly use, you can still get easy access to them by customising the Quick Access Toolbar.

To add any command from any Ribbon to the Quick Access Toolbar, simply right click over the feature and select “Add to Quick Access Toolbar.”

The Quick Access Toolbar’s location can also be amended by selecting “Show Quick Access Toolbar below the Ribbon.” You can also minimize the Ribbon by selecting “Minimize the Ribbon” from the same menu. This allows you to clearly and quickly access your customized “Quick Access Toolbar.”
