Customizing the iManage tab

You can customize the iManage tab in Microsoft Office applications by modifying the following files:

  • iwExcelRibbon.15.xml

  • iwPowerPointRibbon.15.xml

  • iwWordRibbon.15.xml

As an example, if you want to remove the Co-Authoring group from the iManage ribbon in Microsoft Word:

  1. Open the iwWordRibbon.15.xml file in a text editor.

  2. Search for Coauthoring to locate the parameters for Co-Authoring.

  3. Remove the Co-Authoring group by commenting out/deleting the following section from the XML file:

    <group idQ="im:iManage.GroupCoauthoring" getLabel="GetWControlLabel" image="inviteUser">
    <button idQ="im:iManage.CoauthorShare" getLabel="GetWControlLabel" getSupertip="GetWControlSupertip" getEnabled ="GetWControlEnabled" getVisible ="GetWControlVisible" onAction="OnWorkSiteAction" image="inviteUser" size = "large" keytip="CA" />
    <button idQ="im:iManage.CoauthorUnlock" getLabel="GetWControlLabel" getSupertip="GetWControlSupertip" getEnabled ="GetWControlEnabled" getVisible ="GetWControlVisible" onAction="OnWorkSiteAction" image="Unlock" size = "large" keytip="CU" />
    <button idQ="im:iManage.CoauthorSync" getLabel="GetWControlLabel" getSupertip="GetWControlSupertip" getEnabled ="GetWControlEnabled" getVisible ="GetWControlVisible" onAction="OnWorkSiteAction" image="sync_doc" size = "large" keytip="CU" />
    <button idQ="im:iManage.CoauthorVersionHistory" getLabel="GetWControlLabel" getSupertip="GetWControlSupertip" getEnabled ="GetWControlEnabled" getVisible ="GetWControlVisible" onAction="OnWorkSiteAction" image="History" size = "large" keytip="CV" />
    <button idQ="im:iManage.CoauthorStop" getLabel="GetWControlLabel" getSupertip="GetWControlSupertip" getEnabled ="GetWControlEnabled" getVisible ="GetWControlVisible" onAction="OnWorkSiteAction" image="Checkin" size = "large" keytip="CT" />
    <button idQ="im:iManage.CoauthorWorklist" getLabel="GetWControlLabel" getSupertip="GetWControlSupertip" getEnabled ="GetWControlEnabled" getVisible ="GetWControlVisible" onAction="OnWorkSiteAction" image="sharedDocList" size = "large" keytip="CW" />
    </group>
  4. Restart Microsoft Word. After the Co-Authoring group is removed, the iManage ribbon will look as follows:
