Hi all,

I would like to customize the Outlook ribbon. Basically I would like to add a custom gallery. In Excel, it would be someting like this: Galleries in the Ribbon in Excel 2007-2016

I tried a number of things, including changing the file: "%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Office\olkexplorer.officeUI"

For example, the "test" gallery is created with this ribbon XML:

Code:
<mso:gallery id="rxgal" label="test" columns="3" rows="10" imageMso="CopyFolder" visible="true"/><item id="rx1" label="Sheila Webster" /><item id="rx2" label="Brian Main"  />

The 2 test items do not appear in the gallery, however.

Does anyone have a clue ? Is this possible with just plain Outlook or do we need to switch to Visual Studio ?

Thanks !

Outlook 2016, version 2002 (build: 12527.20278)

  1. Create a new Excel workbook.
  2. Save the workbook, and name it ribbon modification.
  3. Close the workbook.
  4. Launch the Custom UI Editor for Microsoft Office.
  5. In the Custom UI Editor, choose File → Open and find the workbook you saved

Hi,

Is this reply for Outlook or Excel ? I want to change the Outlook ribbon similar to something that works in Excel, the Gallery to be more precise.

Thanks.

Okay thank you Diane for confirming, I thought it would be something like that since I did not find it on the internet.
