Hide Access 2013 Print Button in Backstage ACCDE

Have followed various posts here on EE and on web that limit the choices on the backstage view in Ms Access 2013.   I have tried both the following methods which work well except the PRINT button still remains?

Method 1
As from http://www.accessribbon.de/en and various other sources:-

  <backstage>
    <tab idMso="TabInfo" visible="false"/>
    <button idMso="FileSave" visible="false"/>
    <button idMso="SaveObjectAs" visible="false"/>
    <button idMso="FileSaveAsCurrentFileFormat" visible="false"/>
    <button idMso="FileOpen" visible="false"/>
    <button idMso="FileCloseDatabase" visible="false"/>
    <tab idMso="TabRecent" visible="false"/>
    <tab idMso="TabNew" visible="false"/>
    <tab idMso="TabPrint" visible="false"/>
    <tab idMso="TabShare" visible="false"/>
    <tab idMso="TabHelp" visible="false"/>
    <button idMso="ApplicationOptionsDialog" visible="false"/>
    <button idMso="FileExit" visible="false"/>
  </backstage>

Method 2
Set per "Hide Access 2013 Backstage TabInfo" posted on EE.
  <backstage>
    <!-- Info -->
    <tab idMso ="TabInfo" visible="false"/>
    <!-- New -->
    <tab idMso ="TabOfficeStart" visible="false"/>
    <!-- Open -->
    <tab idMso="TabRecent" visible="false"/>
    <!-- Save -->
    <button idMso="FileSave" visible="false"/>
    <!-- Save As -->
    <tab idMso="TabSave" visible="false"/>
    <!-- Print -->
    <tab idMso ="TabPrint" visible="false"/>
    <!-- Close -->
    <button idMso="FileCloseDatabase" visible="false"/>
    <!-- Account -->
    <tab idMso="TabHelp" visible="false"/>
    <!-- Options -->
    <button idMso="ApplicationOptionsDialog" visible="false"/>
  </backstage>


Both methods work in Access 2013 however in both methods the PRINT option is still visible in backstage view.

On File See Print with three options - Quick Print. Print and Print Preview.

How can this be supressed?   The "  <tab idMso ="TabPrint" visible="false"/>"  should have suppress but does not.

Please see attachment also.

Any help appreciated.

Cheers,
Wayne.

An absolute stab in the dark here, as I've not worked much with customising using XML, but perhaps this?:

"  <tab idMso ="FilePrint" visible="false"/>"

Solution only identified with trial and error.  The XML was correct however only worked correctly when the application ribbon was defined.
