Be aware that you can place the same button on two different
tabs, and if you do, the program assigns different keyboard
shortcuts to that button on each tab.
What can I do if I decide that I do not
want a custom tab on the Ribbon?
Reopen the program’s Options dialog box
and deselect the check box beside the
tab you created ( changes to ).
Click OK. When the program redisplays
the Ribbon, your tab will not appear.
