You can select images for controls using the appropriate dialog (Office idMso internal images). Also user-defined images for ribbon controls can be selected and written to a table within an Access database.
You can create Screentips, Supertips and Keytips for controls supporting this feature.
The generated Ribbon XML can be exported directly into an Access 2007 database, including user-defined images if desired. Callbacks will be imported and the required office references will be set automatically.

Another option is to save a ribbon as Word document (. docm), Word template (.dotm), Excel worksheet (.xlsm) or Excel template (.xltm) while both, the images chosen and required callbacks will be integrated.

The Ribbon XML can also be saved as XML file.
Ribbon XML created with Access, Excel or Word can be loaded and modified by RibbonCreator.
An integrated callback editor to manipulate callbacks (Access only) is included. In addition, the callback call for each control can be edited individually.
RibbonCreator also includes online help.

RibbonCreator will be enhanced and extended constantly, please check this site for updates.
