I don't want to add to the clutter, but just want consistancy. At the very least I would like to label commands that are new to me until I learn to recognize them. And I find the various Layers commands difficult to distinguish.
I am using a 25" MacPro so I have lots of room for displaying buttons. Maybe that is why I am having difficulty with all the hidden and nested commands in the Ribbon. With all of this visual real estate I could display them all!
The acer "looks" about half the size of the Sharp. I keep AdCenter, Properties, and Command line on it so the views are not competing but I understand what you mean.
Although now that I'm getting older the type on the acer seems to keep getting smaller. Maybe two big monitors is not such a bad idea.
AND the Sharp is about 4' away from me on a corner desk so I do not go blind.
