Hi all,

I'm in the process of shifting menus and tool bars originally built in earlier versions of MS Access to customized ribbons in MS Access 2013 - mainly because there's no choice. The application had about 5 menu bars (with tool bars) and I've been looking at redesigning things simply because of the room the ribbons take and also the way they work. So one of the first questions I have is:

Is there an advantage having 1 ribbon with multiple tabs as opposed to 5 ribbons with 1 tab each. In either case there's a fair bit of making visible and not visible tabs or groups and perhaps controls too.

This sort of leads to the next question as since I've used code from the IDBE Avenius software I can't seem to find much in the way of examples in using multiple ribbons or even multiple tabs in the same ribbon. The code you can download makes sense for simple changes to ribbons but from what I can see not much more than that. Am I missing something ?

Thanks for any help or suggestions.
