UI tip: lose the ribbon

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

This is the ribbon http://i.imgur.com/pIiC9vr.png , I haven't used it for years

Everything you might use the ribbon for, can be done with keyboard shortcuts... https://www.scirra.com/manual/64/keyboard-shortcuts

...or with the quick access toolbar at the very top of the screen: http://i.imgur.com/RmqSxqE.png

To add buttons into the quick access toolbar, right click to customize it

Removing the ribbon will save you 100 pixels of precious vertical screen space

I've seen too many screenshots of people with tiny screens and huge ribbons so I felt compelled to share this info.

Come to think of it I hardly ever use it too. You can easily hide it with the button in the upper right corner though.

I can't see any issue - Just unpin.

It's all covered in the manual.

Ah.

You're post doesn't really come across like that.
Possibly change the title to reflect it as a tip, such as 'UI Toolbar tip for beginners' or whatever?
