RibbonX - GetEnabled & GetVisible callbacks always "False" when inside of the Formula bar or inside a cell

Hi all,

I am creating an Excel add-in in 2010. I'm using the GetVisible & GetEnabled callbacks for a few of my Groups and Button controls. Both functions work flawlessly.... Except when the cursor is in the formula bar or a user types a value into a cell. => In either of these cases, all my Groups & Buttons that use these callbacks are disabled and invisible. The GetVisible and GetEnabled are always "False" for some reason.

I even ended up tested out both the GetVisible & GetEnabled callbacks so that they're always "True". Even in this scenario, the Groups and Buttons using GetVisible and GetEnabled are still invisible and disabled.

Hoping that someone out there has any opinion on this issue or could provide any ideas on how to solve this.

Thank you very much in advance.

I've used many of the tutorials on the web regarding Excel add-in creation, both from the MS website as well as from many famous Excel experts, including from this terrific and wonderful website owner.
