The option to revert to the old menus was not implemented. The ribbon takes
a little while to find your way around but most people have found that with
that out of the way, it is OK.
My own preference is for the General workspace but each to their own.
Thanks, I had hoped that there might be a feature (or user-made modification, who knows) to get the previous UI back. I'll just have to get used to the changes then. Alone forcing Robohelp to display the project manager and the TOC at the same time was quite a struggle.
I think what you are talking about is the "Classic Workspace". Try clicking Workspace at the top right corner of RoboHelp and see if you get a drop-down listing Classic. Choose that and see if you like it better. That's my first step in making RoboHelp (2015 Release) friendlier and more familiar.
