Hi Chris,

Thanks for providing the XML file.
I can reproduce it on our side and will escalate this problem to our development team for further analysis.
We will need some time to figure it out and will get back to you if any progress we would make.

Open this XML in the RibbonBar builder and you will see what I mean.  Only 3 tabs are visible but they get cutoff by the invisible ones.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for reporting this problem.
We did not reproduce this issue, and please provide a reproducible sample PB test case (with PBT/PBL) to reproduce this issue to us for more study, thanks in advance.

That other picture is hard to see...this is a better one. You can see there are only 2 tabs and the text is only 1 character but there is plenty of space.  There are a bunch of invisible tabs behind the scene.

When you create a new category the tabs size will calculate as if all of the categories are visible. This makes the tab text get cutoff when there are multiple categories open.

Is there a function to recalculate the size of the tabs? They should size according to how many are visible.
