Windows 7: Leaked: newer Office 2010 Technical Preview build

@john3347,

Thanks for that it's always a good thing to have paper, (offline), copies of this type of thing

Also

With regards to the UBitmenu add-on I have managed to check things out a little bit more.

It installs as a document template in the user start-up folder, so I would assume it can be setup to show or not depending on user,
it adds an extra "Menu" tab to the ribbon which seems to cover the missing 2003 menu structure.

It is controllable from the addons area from the office options button so may be switched on and off as required.

It comes with an uninstaller but to remove it's simly a matter of deleting the dotx template file

Interesting Offer,

I think it's a US only based offer at the moment I just checked my connect account and the are no additional surveys available - just a link to my completed form when I was accepted - could of course be because I'm in the program that I don't see it

What version of the technical preview did you end up getting? I'm trying to determine if there is a newer one or not.

I did get accepted and have downloaded and installed O2010. The version I got was 4006.1000.

Cheers!

Finding Items on the Technical Ribbon

I can see why they have all the stuff in there for people to use, but I want to organize it my way. 2007 has a bar for that, but it is small and limited. I've stopped using Word for letters and am now using Corel Draw (Wordperfect is embedded) for letters. I'll switch back if I can arrange things as I want.

Gary - I have been previewing Office 2010 for about two weeks. After I used the Technical ribbon 3 or 4 Times I couldn't readily find items either.... even though using it causes me to remember where things are. For example in Office 2003 Insert-Page Break or Section Break was a menu item. In 2010 when a person goes to view/Page Break section Break isn't there, but if the user right clicks on that tab a menu - pops up and section break is an option. God's Speed - Patrick C

This ribbon aversion is baffling, especially because you're not at its total mercy any more. You can hide it or customize it. If you want Page Break - or any other command - you can make your own ribbon tabs, choose your own name for a tab, make your own groups, and put any command you want in the order you want.

This solves nothing. I don't want the ribbon, I want the original Menu bar.

The ribbon is stupid, and makes NO SENSE WHATSOEVER to me (for instance, word count was in tools, now it is in review? wth?). I want my file, menu, edit, tools, etc. back.
