Missing Ribbon Bar for Menu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 13, 2011
I switched from Gnome to XFCE yesterday. I was happily surprised when on 'launching' Gourmet Recipe Manager, the program ran perfectly. Today, the Ribbon Bar with the commands is missing. Gourmet runs, but displays no ability to enter new recipes, save new recipes, change Preferences, and all other available commands.
What gives? If I knew XFCE better, I wouldn't have to ask this question so broadly.

Windows Ribbon Framework: How to change font face and size?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: June 17, 2011
How do you change the font face and font size used by the Windows Ribbon Framwork's UIRibbon?
The font used by the ribbon does not match the font the user has chosen as their Windows preferences - which is the preference my application uses. This means that as the font in Windows gets bigger, the ribbon gets smaller.
Notice how the ribbon gets smaller in each screenshot:
Segoe UI 9pt (Windows default)
Segoe UI 12pt (what i use)
Segoe UI 16pt (what customer's use)
You can see by the time we get to 16pt, the text on the ribbon is quite hard to read.
The user can configure Windows to use their preferred font size, e.g.:
and their preferred font face, e.g.:
MS Sans Serif
Microsoft Sans Serif
but the Windows Ribbon Framework by default uses a font that is not the user's preference.
