Office 2016. One formula bar. Multiple open documents/templates. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I keep searching for this a solution for this. 

    For my work i have to work with multiple documents at once. When working on a laptop its freaking impossible to get any work done. Even on two 30" 2560x1600 WQXGA screens it doesn't 'work'. Maybe if you do a lot of the same work? But not you use a lot of buttons/tabs/sheets/docs/templates.... 

    If put one screen right and one left there is no room on the 'formula' bar and everything gets hidden and i'm clicking/searching way to long.

    When its 1 in the top and one in the bottom it's to hard to compare paragraphs. 

    Why cant you use the good old "extra window" and have one row of buttons and 2 or more screens that are useful!

    Having multiple ribbons with buttons that all do the same has NO added value!!!!

    Some one pleas find a solution for this. The completely stripped down "custom" ribbon i'm using now just does't work. 

    I've managed to keep my 2010 for as long as i could but i'm forced in to 365/2016 now and i'ts driving me crazy!!!! 

    What ever you do!!! DO NOT DO THIS TO VISUAL BASIC!!! Pleas i'm begging you!!!

    Sincerely someone who automates excel/word stuff and places bookmarks, formats and a whole lot of other stuff al over multiple templates and spreadsheets.  


    ps: At least explain why you took this course/approach. 

    ps2: I'm just posting every where i can think of till i find a solution. It't not ment as spam.
