    In case there are no explicit key tips specified, ribbon bar assigns numbers to commands/chunks. It works well if number of elements to be accessed by key tips is less than 10 at each hierarchical level. However, when there is more than 10, ribbon bar assigns those above 9 key tips 10, 11 and so on. But these are not accessible by user, as pressing "1" will trigger element with key tip 1.

    Maybe making those key tips over 9 be "01", "02", "001" etc., as "0" doesn't trigger any element and pressing 0, then 1/2/... would clearly distinguish the command.

    Hi Daniel,

    First of all we are very sorry for the late reply.

    Yes, you've found a bottleneck in the automatic keytips implementation, and we will do our best to address it for the upcoming Q1 release. We are moving towards a complete redesign and refactoring of RadRibbonBar, and your suggestion will be an integral part of this task.

    Thank you again for the suggestion. If you have any additional questions, please contact us.

    Sincerely yours,
