Re: 324.2 Display

Thank you. I definitely know now how Ribbon Layout and Split View work. When it would happen with them I thought it was a bug.

I will keep watching for something concerning the taskbar gap and post if I see anything.

Re: 324.2 Display

I anticipated those would be the answers to my questions. I definitely think Split View should not be persistent. I wish it could the same for Ribbon layout. The only time it is useful to me is on files with mixed page sizes like 8.5" x 11" portrait and 11" x 17" landscape. Put the program in Ribbon...

I don't think you can change those "baked in" colors. You can however clone and rename one of those colors using the buttons in the toolbar. Then change whatever you want, and the new color will be there when you restart the program. You can assign a shortcut key to it also.
