Using/managing the ribbon

The ribbon contains most of the application’s commands.

Click a tab to display its contents: the name of the active tab appears against a white background.

Each tab is divided into different groups.

In this example, the Layout tab is shown, with all the commands related to Layout, organised in three groups: Page Setup, Paragraph and Arrange.

By default, the supporting text for a command is displayed in a screen tip.
