Hearing a similar thing here as well, although it's the way the ribbons are working rather than the ribbon itself which seems to be the problem. Menu choices shifting position, etc., presumably in accordance with the process the user is supposed to be using. For established users of Revit, however, who already have some workable way of operating different from that which the current menus support or guide, it's apparently really annoying. I've heard the term 'psychotic' applied to the Revit 2010 menuing system, by an expert, long-time user, as well as pleas for a return to the previous menu layout.metanoia wrote:[...] the Ribbon. So you've got a GUI designed for a word processor forced onto high-end CAD software, and it just doesn't work. Most users are hating it. And we didn't ask for it: it was just shoved down our collective throats. Some users have really had the carpet pulled out from under them as a result. [...]
While the future of a product is in people who are not users yet, the way to get to the future is by being good to the users one has. AD has been weak on that, although as mentioned elsewhere, the "Stockholm Syndrome" with Revit and so on, is powerful.
