Show/Hide Tabs once Ribbon is set to Start from Scratch in Word using XML RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am creating a document template in Word 365. Because I am creating a Custom QAT, I need to start my ribbon from scratch.  I have set the tabs that I want to be viewable as "visible=true" but Design, Layout, Review, Acrobat and PDF-Xchange are not appearing.  The other Tabs are viewable. 


    <customUI xmlns= "" xmlns:mso="" xmlns:x1="htpp://" xmlns:doc="htpp://">
    	<ribbon startFromScratch="true">
                  <tab id="AABC" label="LABEL" insertBeforeMso="TabHome">
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabHome" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabInsert" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idq="mso:TabDesign" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabLayout" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabReferences" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabReview" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabView" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabDeveloper" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabAcrobat" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabPDF-XChange" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabMailings" visible="false"/>
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabAddIns" visible="false"/>
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabBlogPost" visible="false"/>
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabBlogInsert" visible="false"/>
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabOutlining" visible="false"/>
                    <tab idQ="mso:TabBackgroundRemoval" visible="false"/>

  • thank you, I had the tabs labeled incorrectly.  they are now visible.   Downloading the wordcontrols from Microsoft was a lifesaver!


    <tab idMso="TabHome" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idMso="TabInsert" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idMso="TabWordDesign" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idMso="TabPageLayoutWord" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idMso="TabReferences" visible="true"/>
                    <tab idMso="TabReviewWord" visible="true"/>
