Hi,
Thanks for Ribbon.

I am starting with your Ribbon (DLL version) but I do not find where in designer to fix size somes features in OrbMenu :
  • File Menu is oversized
  • File menu margins corrections (bottom mainly) => green/yellow arrow
  • File menu does not have RecentItem, how to remove => black/yellow arrows
  • Ajust size (font or what ever) to menuitems (blue/yellow Arrow)
  • Add shortcuts to items (per ex. CTRL-R to "Reload" command, CTRL-S => Save, ALT-F4 to Quit, ...)
  • Themes already include does not work (black, purple, ...) only Blue for Office 2010 and While for Office 2013. I am already see a discussion about theme but I use only your DLL version.
  • I have also same problem as another recent discussion about dispear separator in Panel situed below closed menu
Also how to navigate with keyboard in Ribbon (Tab key, cursors, ...) seems do not working.
I missed configuration or not possible ? I am currently replace my old fashion MenuStrip.

Is it possible to use your Tooltip (Title, Image, Text) to others objects (textbox, combobox, listbox, ...) in same "Solution" (VS2013 - C# - .NET 2.0)

Many many thanks (sorry for my bad English).

Rem. When do you plan a rebuild for a new version ?

You have several options on the RibbonOrbDropDown:
  • the minimum size of the left part is controlled by ContentButtonsMinWidth
  • the minimum size of the right part is controlled by ContentRecentItemsMinWidth
  • the general size can be set by the Size property

Many thanks.

And for others questions ?:

Mainly:
  • size of menuitems in OrbDropdown menu ( see arrow blue )
  • naviguate with key into ribbon (cursor, tab, ...), is it possible ?
  • how to add shortcut into OrbDropDown menu (menuitems) ?
  • how to add your tooltip to others objects (such as combobox, textbox, ...) in my form.
Again thanks

So much questions and so little time ;-)
  • size of menuitems in OrbDropdown menu ( see arrow blue )
    • I guess (!) the height if the items is calculated from the overall size
  • naviguate with key into ribbon (cursor, tab, ...), is it possible ?
    • not that I know
  • how to add shortcut into OrbDropDown menu (menuitems) ?
    • someone added a feature for AltKey, check that out
  • how to add your tooltip to others objects (such as combobox, textbox, ...) in my form.
    • RibbonToolTip is only working for Ribbon items (such as RibbonTextBox, RibbonButton...)

In case of the AltKey is not working for you, you can replace it with an ordinary hidden menustrip and hidden menu items.
You can assign Shortcut Key to the hidden menustrip's items.
It has the same effect as applying shortcut key to the Ribbon Menu.
