I am trying to use the Traditional Application Menu instead of the Backstage Application Menu. My XAML builds right (it is based off of the application manual example) and when I click on the Orb, it changes colors, but no menu is shown. So i recognized that the Width and Height in Auto mode is set to 0. So I changed it to 250 width and height and still no menu is visible.

Here is my XAML:

<ribbon:Ribbon.ApplicationMenu>
    <ribbon:ApplicationMenu Width="250" Height="250">
        <ribbon:SplitButton Label="New" Width="250" Height="250"/>
        <ribbon:Button Label="Save" Width="250" Height="250"/>
        <ribbon:Button Label="Open" Width="250" Height="250"/>
    </ribbon:ApplicationMenu>
</ribbon:Ribbon.ApplicationMenu>

Hi Ed,

If I take your code and pull out the Width/Height settings and update ribbon to show an orb, it seems to be working fine for me:
<ribbon:Ribbon x:Name="ribbon" DockPanel.Dock="Top" UseScenicLayout="False">
    <ribbon:Ribbon.ApplicationMenu>
        <ribbon:ApplicationMenu>
            <ribbon:SplitButton Label="New"/>
            <ribbon:Button Label="Save"/>
            <ribbon:Button Label="Open"/>
        </ribbon:ApplicationMenu>
    </ribbon:Ribbon.ApplicationMenu>
    ...
</ribbon:Ribbon>
This is using the latest version. Are you sure you're running the latest?

It seems I still have version 11.2.550.0 of the tools (based on the version number in the assemblies), so I am currently downloading the latest tool and I will try again.
