Life with Visio and other Microsoft Toys!

The Ribbon is cute, but where is…

With Visio 2010, Visio has now joined the other core Office apps and now supports the ribbon. The ribbon on displays what is relavent for the task at hand. With the old menus, I ended up turning almost all of them on and wasting screen real estate. So in a way, I like the new ribbon.
Of course, the first question asked always starts with, “where is the button for…”. There is a download from Microsoft that will help you navigate, but the Visio team was prepared for questions about the location of commands. If you click on the File Ribbon and choose Options and then Customize ribbon, you are presented with choices for changing the ribbon. In the drop down box below “choose commands from: “ select “All Commands”. Now if you scroll down the list of commands, you should be able to find the command you are looking for. If you hover over the command, you will be presented with the actual location of the command on the ribbon. If you start from the top of the list, do not get discouraged, the first nine commands are “Not in the Ribbon”.
