Solid Edge UI tips inspired by MS Office

These little facts may well be known to those who were using SE when the ribbon interface was introduced. I missed few of those versions after V20.

 

Yesterday, I was reading through some MS Excel tips when came across 2 facts:

 

1. You can double click a tab on the ribbon to expand-collapse or show-hide the ribbon bar.

 

2. You can scroll the mouse wheel over the ribbon to change the tabs without having to actually reach-out to a tab and making it current.

 

I found these to be working with Solid Edge too, especially the scroll tip which gives a 'never-before-seen' panoramic view of all Solid Edge commands available to a user.

 

So I may not be the first one to have discovered these little tidbits, but thought of documenting and illustrating on these pages:

Good reminder for those of us who struggled to work with the early M$ Office style UIs. I still find this UI clumsy for CAD use, but I am getting better at customizing it.

Good tip Imi. I always thought that one was reserved for context sensitive help.

@jinglis  here's another topic that has come up that I seriously consider too clumsy to handle due mainly to transition from a menu system to a ribbon interface.
