The XL2BB Excel add-in is a standard add-in instead of a Visual Studio COM add-in to make it available in Mac and also avoid extra runtime libraries that the client machine might need to download and install to run it. Therefore, its custom ribbon tab is document-level customization, so I don't know if it is even possible to control it in the ribbon customization dialog. That's the reason we located it after all other tabs.My XL2BB tab shows up in the ribbon at the end. I can copy ranges. However I cannot customize it in the ribbon to move it around. It is unblocked. Any ideas?
However, one possible workaround to place the XL2BB ribbon tab after or before a certain tab, for example, Home tab, then you can open the
xl2bb.xlamfile as an archive (by using an application like 7-Zip to make it easy - remember to quit Excel), and edit the
\customUI\customUI14.xmlfile to add the
insertAfterMsoattribute as shown below:
<tab id="tabXL2BB" label="Xl2bb" keytip="X" insertAfterMso="TabHome">
This will create the XL2BB ribbon tab after the Home tab.
This is the only way (actually, workaround) that I can think of.
Note: I am moving your post to the XL2BB discussion. Maybe other members following this thread might know other ways, or this workaround might help others as well.
