Shortcuts in Application Menu

Ribbon for WPF Forum

we are building an application with the ActiPro Ribbon component. In the Application Menu there is a mix of Ribbon Backstage Tabs and Ribbon Buttons. The Buttons do not have any Icons. If we use Keyboard Shortcuts and press the ALT Key, the shortcuts are shown near the correnponding entry in the Application Menu. But for Buttons they are shown on top of the Entry, for Backstage Tabs left to the entry. This looks a bit confusing. If you open Word 2013, you will see all Shortcuts at the same position relative to the command.

How can we do this with ActiPro?

Thanks in advance

Hi Marc,

I believe in previous Office versions, they were aligned how we do it now.  But we will update the key tip locations for buttons in the Backstage header in the 2013.2 version to align with the tab key tip locations.

Thanks for your answer and thanks for updating the locations in the next version. You are correct. In Office 2010 the buttons had an icon and the text location was therefore different.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
