Ribbon UI - Classic Toolbars

Post by HaPe » Fri Dec 01, 2017 5:27 pm

There seems to be a minor bug in V7 when switching between "Classic Toolbars" and "Ribbon UI".
If I start the Editor with the Ribbon UI everything is fine.Switching to Classic Toolbars
also causes no problems.But if I switch at least twice successively between the two options the tabs (except
the "File" and "Home" tabs)in the Ribbon UI don't respond to mouse clicks anymore.
Only restarting the Editor make them available again.
Normally no one switches constantly between UIs but I got intrigued by your new Ribbon Layout and
wanted to compare the two interface options.

Apart from that: Great job.As a long time user of Classic toolbars this might the first time that I am going
to use the Ribbon UI in a program. :D

It took me a while to reproduce the problem. It only seems to happen when the ribbon is collapsed/minimized.

Once the problem is there, click the ˅ icon to expand the ribbon. You will see a Pin-icon.
Click on this Pin, and the ribbon will function again.

In HaPe's video the Pin-icon is visible from second 2 until second 7 at the utmost right of the menu-bar.
I have no idea what would be the goal of this Pin.

Best regards.

And yes, to all people at Tracker Software, congratulations with the new release.

Hello HePe,

Thanks for the kind words!
The weekend was enjoyed and we are now back on track working hard.
We are planning a new release (323.1) to be available soon - fixing some issues that we have observed with the new version. I do not have an exact date yet - but it will be as soon as we are happy that things we discovered are acted on!
