backstage view and XML ribbon in the same add-in RRS feed

  • Question

  • can an excel add-in have both backstage view XML and ribbon XML ?

    When I add the <backstage> node to the <customUI> XML  document visual studio complains that the <ribbon> node that follows is not allowed.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <customUI xmlns="" onLoad="Ribbon_Load">
        <button id="customButton" label="backstage button"  imageMso="HappyFace" />
          <tab idMso="TabAddIns">
            <group id="group1" label="group1">
              <button id="butRun" onAction="butRun_Click" label="Run Report"
                      size="large" />
