The new ribbon is a terrible idea. I need as much screen "real estate" as possible to compose lengthy professional research reports and legal briefs. The new ribbon makes my 13 inch screen much less useful; I can only work (now) by hiding the new (ugly) ribbon.
Since I actually use the ribbon to speed up formatting steps, hiding and un-hiding it really slows me down. It seems whoever dreamed up the new ribbon appearance doesn't know about 13 inch 4K screens, the needs if writing professionals using this equipment or how to maximize the usability of software applications.
It's easier for me to use Google Docs rather than Word 2019 (purchased, not 365 subscription). Why did Microsoft mess-up it's excellent Word interface to make it look like a toy for children? Word needs to remain a writing tool for professionals.
The new ribbon is a very, very bad move and quite disappointing.Joe Schwoebel supported this idea ·
