How to remove the backstage?

I have a simple problem: I want a ribboncontrol without a backstage - but somehow I don't find corresponding property...

How do I do it?


Thank you

Backstage (or Application Menu Button) is an integral part of the Ribbon (according to the official guidelines).
We plan to add Application Menu Button & Office 2007 styles in the next version, so maybe we will introduce a property to hide this button.

Hmm okay.. is it an integral part in the 2010 guidelines? I have to admint I only skimmed over the guidelines,  but I think there was no mention of the backstage at all... this is my source as directed from the WPF Ribbon Preview Page

I was using the RibbonControlLibrary ("WPF Ribbon Preview" from the WPF Toolkit here on Codeplex) and I am now switching to FluidRibbon, because the RibbonControlLibrary lacks so many features (e.g. InRibbonGalleries)... also it did not have a Backstage...

Is there already an ETA for the next version?


Thank you
