Deciphering Ribbon icons
Each Ribbon tab displays commands as buttons or icons, organized into
groups. There are four types of icons displayed on the Ribbon:
One-click icons: These icons do something with a single click.
Menu icons: These icons display a pull-down menu of options you can
choose.
Split-menu icons: These icons consist of two halves. One half lets you
choose a command like a one-click icon, and the second half displays a
downward-pointing arrow, which displays additional options.
Combo boxes: These display a text box where you can type a value in or
click on a downward-pointing arrow to choose from a menu of options.
Using one-click icons
One-click icons simply display an icon, or an icon with text. To use a
oneclick icon, you select the data you want to manipulate, such as a paragraph
or a picture, and then click the icon. Figure 1-12 shows one-click icons that
display only an icon or both text and an icon.
The most common one-click icons are the Cut and Copy commands, which
appear on the Home tab of every Office 2010 program.
Using menu icons
A one-click icon represents a single command. However, there isn’t enough
room on the Ribbon to display every possible command as a single icon. As
a result, menu icons display a pull-down menu that stores multiple options
within a single icon, as shown in Figure 1-13.
