NX11 Slim Ribbon


How come when I change the user preference for Ribbon Bar Options to the Slim Ribbon Style, all of the Icons on the ribbon move from a left justification to a center justification? Just looks odd, and I haven't found a way to change it.

Any help would be appreciated

Hi BShaf,


the Slim Ribbon was designed primarily for usage on touch displays, such as the Surface Pro. It is meant for a smaller form factor screen where various sized icons in columns are harder to touch with a finger than linearly arranged commands of the same size. The icons are centered to reduce hand travel. 


I do agree that in the picture on the thread the configuration is a bit odd, but this wouldn’t be the recommended way to use this mode.

It has been requested in the past to provide some enhancements to both the normal ribbon mode and Slim Ribbon to allow the user to choose the alignment. 

We have some ERs as such, but nothing that is yet available in the product.


See below a better screen cap of how this mode looks on a 10” screen (NX12).
