Hi, all.

I want to customize the ribbon UI supported from the LibreOffice 5.3 experimental version. First, I want to customize the ribbon ui in swriter. I found out I have to make some changes on notebookbar.ui file located in the following folder : /instdir/share/config/soffice.cfg/modules/writer/ui/notebookbar.ui

What I wanted to make changes is to make the "Home" tab wider on ribbon ui, so I added the following line in the above notebookbar.ui file. <property name="ypad">38</property> After adding this line, I restarted the swriter.exe in instdir folder, but nothing changed. What's wrong? So now I wonder if vcl can't parse this property name...

Who can resolve this issue? Please help me !!! It's kinda urgent task!!!

And I don't even know how the .ui file is used and rendered in libreoffice code structure ... In a word, I want to know the mechanism how the .ui and .xml files are used to configure GUI ...

Look forward to hearing from somebody!!!

Thanks. Yoshitoshi.
