View all of the Quick Access Toolbar? RRS feed

  • Question

  • It is possible to see all of the Quick Access Toolbar when it is located above the ? As is now when Tools Tabs are applied in the Ribbon, they put a colored named tab (e.g. Gantt Chart Tools) up in the Quick Access Toolbar area, meaning only approx. 1/3 of the QAT is visible. Of course there is a dropdown list on the QAT, but that'a another mouse action.

    So far I'e only come up with 2 solutions:

    1) Show the QAT below the Ribbon (not my preferred choice, but probably have to in the end)

    2) Make Customs Tabs on the Ribbon with exactly the same setup/layout as the different Tools Tabs (okay, using 90% of my time on Gantt Chart so basically only 1 Custom Tab + maybe 1 or 2 more)

    Any other solutions like hiding the colored tab and if so, how?

    Regards,

    BJ

  • No way that I know of.  I'd go with option #1 if it's that much of an issue....or
    just add Tabs to the Ribbon instead.

  • BJ --

    Solution #1 is what I do personally, and I advise all of our clients to do. I am now aware of any way to solve the problem when the QAT is shown above the Ribbon.  Hope this helps.
