Working with Collapsible Tab Groups
Within a tab, groups can expand or collapse depending on the width of the PowerPoint
window. When the window is large enough, everything within each group is fully expanded
so that each item has its own button. When the window is smaller, groups start collapsing
so that all groups remain visible. At fi rst, large buttons get smaller and stack vertically; if
that’s not enough, then groups collapse into single large buttons with drop-down lists from
which you can select the individual commands. Figure 1.14 shows the same tab in three
different widths for comparison.
FIGURE 1.14
The size of the PowerPoint window determines how much the groups are collapsed or
expanded on the Ribbon.
