Long time users of Dimension prefer traditional toolbars or the “Classic Toolbar” look. When the ribbon bar was introduced in eTakeoff Dimension, users who were already familiar with the traditional menus and toolbars did not want to change their look because it was an unnecessary change.Therefore, we offer you a choice between the two. The "Look" tab of the User Preferences allows you to turn ribbon bar use on or off. For new users (new installs), the ribbon bar will be on by default. Existing users (upgrade installs), will retain the traditional menu and toolbars.
