Are there any plans to add the Office 2021 theme to the BCG ribbon?

Hi,

MS Office 2021 has the same color themes as Office 2016-2019 (white, black, colorful and dark gray). There are some differences in layout (like search box on the Ribbon caption that you can specify in API).

Best regards,

There were subtle changes to the 2021 Microsoft Office Ribbon (color, rounded edges, see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/the-new-look-of-office-a6cdf19a-b2bd-4be1-9515-d74a37aa59bf). Not a big deal if you are not going to be updating.

Hi,

1. Rounded Edges. As you can see in our BCGPMSOfficeDemo example, all popup windows (like mini toolbar, popup menus, ...) optionally have rounded corners:



In one of Excel 2021 updates we saw the rounded Ribbon groups, but later this feature was excluded. Once this appearance is permanently included in MS Office, we'll consider to add it too.

2. Colors. In our opinion, there differences between Office 2019 and 2021 colors are minimal. But if you (or other customers) believe that this is important, we'll implement these color themes.

Best regards,

suggestion: instead of the year and a one-word description like 2016 Aqua, drop the year and just try and express the essence of the look and feel. Add a tooltip to further help guide the user. For an example of a company that names their images semantically well, see iStock.

Hi,

MS Office 2021/2022-like theme will be included in the next product version (33.2, ETA - August 2022).

The implementation includes new colors and rounded edges in Ribbon controls and categories
