Use Dialog Launchers For More Choices
July 22, 2021 - by Bill Jelen
Problem: It seems like there should be more choices than what is showing on the ribbon. Where is Center Horizontally in the ribbon?
Strategy: Many groups in the ribbon contain a tiny icons called dialog launchers. You can click an icon to open a dialog with more choices. This figure shows an example of a dialog launcher.
Additional Details: It is difficult to describe the dialog launcher icon. If you enlarge the icon, you can see that it looks like the top-left corner of a square with an arrow pointing down and to the right. I am sure there is some artistic rationale why these pixels mean “launch the full dialog ,” but I can’t figure it out.
