As an alternative to customized ribbon files, which override the existing ribbon, you can import external custom tabs to the ribbon. The customized tabs are automatically appended to the end of the ribbon for all users who use the same firm or environment folder. This means that an administrator can distribute customizations to all users in the company while still allowing individual users to customize their ribbons as well.
Note that these customized tabs do not appear in the Ribbon editor
, so the users are not able to edit them. If the administrator has updated the contents of a customized tab, the users will receive an update when they restart Tekla Structures
. Tabs are not configuration specific, so they are imported regardless of the user's Tekla Structures
license. If the tab contains commands that are not available in the user's configuration, they will appear dimmed on the ribbon.
