Does anyone know if it's possible to put a reading pane toggle onto the home

ribbon?

I'm trying to figure a way to do a simple on/off.

The off/right/bottom commands are not exposed, only the menu where you choose one of the options. Should be able ot use VBA to make a toggle if you don't want to expand the button.

To add it to the ribbon or QAT, go to file, options, customize ribbon (or QAT). Select All commands, tab into the commands and type R to jump down.

Oops... i lied. I didn't look at the right ribbon. Select Views (in the Customize ribbon dialog) and you can add Off and Right buttons (reading pane off is the one with the icon) - its not a toggle, but you can avoid the drop menu. If you really want a toogle, use VBA.

Many thanks indeed - the two buttons are fine!

(Why on earth didn't I think of that!)

FWIW,

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/outlook is

the correct URL to push people to. The TechNet beta forum was closed and

its targeted to IT Pros now. Answers is taking over for this group, which

will be closed in coming months.

You undoubtably saw that the question was answered well before you decided to

chime in. Your post of this serves no purpose except to attract attention to

yourself. You serve no one except yourself with this inaccurate answer.

Unlike yourself, I still filter out certain posts, especially any that

originate from a webnews-for-boobs interface (other than the one by

Microsoft but which will eventually get phased out). The posts to which you

refer were never seen by me because they originate from a webnews site using

the Vbulletin gateway software. Gateways are used by web-based forums that

want to leech from Usenet to pretend they have a larger community then they

actually have and draw boobs in as fast as the Google Groups webnews-for-

boobs interface. I don't see Google Groupers. I don't see the other

webnews-for-boobs users, either. That's my choice. Your's is to see it

all.

So I take it that your mantra is to never reveal to users another venue for

help. Okay, again your choice, not mine.

"This category is going to be retired in May 2010."

Not dead yet. "in" doesn't specify a date so the statement isn't true until

May has elapsed or those forums actually disappear. They do have a link on

the page to which I linked that takes the user to the URL you mention.

Microsoft decided to take a general-populace and now point it at a community

that is supposedly for IT pros. That won't result in the non-pros from

visiting those same groups they were visiting before. Looks like a bad

choice on how they are trying to switch to a different community of users.

Instead of having the .../office2010 URL redirect to an end-user (non-pro)

category, it redirects to the .../officeitpro (pro) groups. Sometimes you

have to wonder if some folks at MS might enjoy engendering confusion.

So has Office 2010 gone RTM to *end* users yet? Yes, it has been released

to Technet and MSDN subscribers but those folks get support included when

they *buy* those subscriptions. I doubt those folks are the ones here

asking for help on Office 2010 or a component thereof. For the end users

(not Technet/MSDN subscribers) here, it is still a beta version. This isn't

the Technet or MSDN communities. This is a populace of end users. When I

go to http://office.microsoft.com/, I still see it is the beta version shown

on their web pages. Until I see Microsoft actually stops declaring Office

2010 as a beta version on their own web pages is when I will stop pointing

to the forums they recommended before.

I'll keep checking since, I think, it was May (or after May) when Microsoft

was planning to supply the non-beta (RTM) version to non-Technet/MSDN users.

When I see Microsoft no longer declaring it is a beta version is when I'll

stop pointing over at those beta forums.
