  1. Add a search field in Customize the Ribbon

    It is hard to find commands when you don't know how they are named.

    A search box that filters all commands for a given phrase would be very helpful.

    E.g. when I enter "shape" in that search box I want to see only commands that contains "shape" anywhere in there name.

    Hi Andreas,

    This is already supported. In the ribbon, you’ll see a lightbulb icon with the text “Tell me what you want to do.” If you type the command you want to perform there, it will filter all commands (like “Shape”) and show you a list of the relevant ones.

    Hope that helps,
    Dan [MS]
