About Customizing Ribbon Panels

You can create ribbon panels from scratch or from an existing ribbon panel. Once a
ribbon panel is created, you can add, rearrange, and remove commands or controls on
a ribbon panel.

Ribbon panels are organized by rows, sub-panels, and slide-out elements to organize
how commands and controls are displayed on the ribbon. A slide-out is automatically
added to each ribbon panel and is used to determine which rows are shown by default.
Rows located below a slide-out are displayed only when a ribbon panel is expanded.

Ribbon tabs are used to control the display of ribbon panels on the ribbon. Once a
ribbon tab is defined and ribbon panels are added to it, the ribbon tab needs to be
added to a workspace in order for it to be displayed in the application window.
