Feature suggestions:

1. Object recognition and feature prediction system

-predicts what action the user is planning to do next depending on the selected item then suggests and displays object-related tools. (e.g. suggestions tab on ribbon)

-saves time on finding commands

-less clutter

2. Space or bar dedicated to pinned tools, recommended, frequently and recently used commands.

-changes dynamically

-option for auto hide or always show

3. Expand button on command groups instead of open dialog box.

-expands the selected command group sideward while displacing other command groups in the ribbon.

4. Autohide option in ribbon (and backstage too)

-autohides the ribbon to maximize space for documents

-hover over preferred tab (e.g. Home) to pull ribbon in a drawer-like sliding animation similar to activating handwriting pane on widows

-allows seamless jumping from tab to tab using only hover gestures without clicking one by one

-ribbon slides back after use

5. No save button

-autosaves file as user edits without sacrificing performance (note:

My pc lags as autosave starts.)
