Custom tab defined in Ribbon xml using Qualified ID is not displaying in Options->Customize RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Could you suggest the next point?

    We are developing MS PowerPoint 2007/2010 AddIn using VSTO and custom classes for building customUI xml. We create two custom tabs:

    1-st tab looks like:

    <tab id="TabId" lablel="First tab" ... />

    2-nd tab looks like:

    <tab idQ="x:TabId2" label="SecondTab".../>

    where x - namespace defined in root customUI xml element (it is a very thing for our AddIn).

    Than we look into the Options dialog => Customize ribbon section (File => Options => Customize Ribbon, Choose command from All Tabs)

    In PowerPoint 2010 The first tab with ID would being displayed, but the second tab with Qualified Id not. However both tabs would being displayed in PowerPoint 2007.

    What should we do to disappear this mistake? Is it a defect of PP 2010?

    Thank you in advance.

    Sincerely, Vyacheslav.

  • Thanks for your further information. Now I could see this issue on my side. TestAddInTab is listed in the dialog above in PowerPoint 2007. In PowerPoint 2010, we could not see this tab. As far as I see, it seems a issue in PowerPoint 2010. If you like, I will report a feedback to offbug database for you.

    Have a nice day.
