Reviews for this release

Really useful tool. Thank you. Working fine on prem with RU6 for me. The only thing I've noticed is that if you have along list of hidden items, and you want to un-hide one, you can't scroll down below the list of items which is visible, so this still requires an XML edit. Thanks again.

Amazing. Used OnPrem/Non-IFD. I spent two days updating the XML by hand (with no success) before I found this great utility.

Doesn't seem to work with on-prem :(

Since RU6 is up I am unable to make it work. Am I missing somethings? Any plan for a fix?

Maybe I'm doing something wrong but this hasn't worked for me since RU6.

Thanks for this tool, this is a lot easier than dealing directly with the XML! Of course, some features are missing for now but I believe you this tool will be improved over time. Keep up the good work :-)

Nice job! This tool works very well and successfully eliminates the need for painful trial and error with the complex XML markup.

Great start, I see this becoming a must have tool in anyones CRM toolbox. Also a great visual way to learn the RibbonDiffXML.

Impressive work! I do like the visual edition capabilities! Only three stars since I'm not fond of the graphical design and the lack of other possibilities (add other controls than groups and buttons) Keep up the good work!
