Being an Access data base developer, I would like to see something added for the user experience. When developing data bases to sell for commerical use, most end users DO NOT want to see all the ribbon effects on a user based data base program.
If you are in an office creating data bases, the ribbon is great, and also I might add the new security features are great too.
I don't know if this is possible, but if the end user would have the option of specifying whether or not their primary use of MS Access is either a "user" or "data base creator" it would sure be handy to eliminate the ribbon from the toolbar for those who do not want to see it and allow for easier custom data base creation. This is what I do now for all my data bases. If an individual were to choose "user" then the minimal text toolbar could be loaded without all the additional items used for additional purposes.
As a creator, then all the ribbon features would be visible, and it would also be nice to allow the end user to switch between modes if they desired, so when using an Access application, they could open just as any end user would, but then as a creator, they could open with all the new full functions that have been made and visible.
I'm in the medical area and the end users do not want to see all the additional features as they might be used in other business areas. Anyway, that is only a suggestion I might add to perhaps make it easier for the developer to work with all the new features
that have been added. Many end users do not want to see more than what they will be using in the medical area and it would perhaps save a little extra code in perhaps having to block the ribbon for the simple end user who just wants to enter data.
Anyway I just thought I would add my 2 cents worth here.
