Been a very long time since I posted....and since I modified my Ribbon.....:)


In 2016, when I purchased this laptop and the Office suite of the time (is that Office 2016?), I made very many mods to the ribbon. Now I want to add three more buttons to the colour swatch, but I'll be blessed if I can remember the procedure.

Here is the current section for fill colours:

I want to add three more in an 8th column on the right. I have the macros written in the VBAProject
0. Ribbon Tabs.xlam
and I have the button pngs created in
C:\1. Excel Buttons\Buttons\New folder

I know there's another step that I have to use a certain editor for in an XML (?) document, but I just can't remember what to do. I seem to recall that it was fiddly to do, but that may have been creating the button pngs.

Any help is much appreciated!

So I added the font colour buttons, and they will be very useful.

Also added some column width buttons for widths of 2,4,8,12,20,30. The whole ribbon:

I downloaded the OfficeRibbonXEditor but I can't seem to get it to display any xlam code. It shows the button images I have inserted, but that's it. Any clues to follow?
