Hi there,

still wondering while the QuickAccessBar Buttons gets disable while the user clicks the ApplicationMenu to open the backstage tabs.

How do we keep the buttons enabled?

Thanks in advance

The Microsoft ribbon specification says that when the Backtage is open, the QAT items should be disabled.  Thus we have some logic in our Ribbon.OnIsApplicationMenuOpenChanged handler to disable the QAT in that scenario.

This makes sense because while Backstage is displayed, the end user doesn't have any context of what the QAT buttons will affect (due to Backstage covering the normal window content).  If you have some commands you want always available on Backstage, you could place the buttons in the Backstage tab area, or could put buttons on a particular BackstageTab.
