Screen filling backstage

Apr 26, 2010 at 5:52 PM


I'm wondering why the backstage tab fills the entire screen and thus, when opened, hides everything else.

I'd rather like it to appear like in "classic" ribbon application like Office.

When you click the round button there, only a window opens, big enough to present a number of options, but the rest of the application (opened documents etc.) are still visible. Is there a way to accomplish this using your controls?

The "Backstage" tab is designed around Office 2010. If you install the Office 2010 Beta you'll see this layout. I guess the RCS team decided to make a 2010 ribbon, rather than 2007.

Yep. Threre are Application Menu and Backstage (new conception). Now we have Backstage implemented. I hope Application Menu & Office 2007 styles will be implemented as well, soon.
