change order of tabs ribbon tabs in Revit one box

Using Revit one box, we are predominantly MEP engineers, but I want the other ribbons to remain available to the users. But I would also like the 'Systems' tab to be leftmost. Is this possible?

 

I don't see any mechanism for organizing the tabs in the 'User Interface' portion of Options.

 

Any suggestions?

While holding CTRL, click and drag the Ribbon Tabs to where you'd like them.

Thanks Corey!

 

That works, but it doesn't look like that settings is being saved in Revit.ini.  I'm wondering where it's saved and how I can push it out to the masses. Any thoughts?

That, I don't know. Search this forum and the Revit Architecture forum and see if anyone else has ever posted a solution.

Here is an old document regarding resetting the Revit interface:

Resetting the Autodesk Revit 2012 user interface

http://usa.autodesk.com/getdoc/id=TS16825244

 

In this document it indicates that the Ribbon and Quick Access Toolbar information is stored in the UIState.dat file.

Thanks, but when I put my 'UIState.dat' file onto a different computer, it caused Revit to go into 'Viewer Only' mode. So even if this file does control the sequence of the tabs (which it appears to), it would seem there is no good way to share it to my other 80 users. Is that correct?

I wouldn't expect the UIState.dat file to put Revit into a viewer mode. However, there is normally a shortcut on the start menu to start the Revit viewer.

 

How did you launch Revit after changing the UIState.dat file?

>From the same desktop icon that I had started it with previously. And just to be clear, this was a UIState.dat file created on a different PC. It's not that big of deal, if there is no 'officially supported' way to do it, I'll just teach my users how to make the change.
