New user interface: Ribbon and Quick Launch

MP4 video: 

Tekla Structures 2016 has a new intuitive user interface. One of the most exciting changes is the new ribbon. The ribbon contains all commands and other functions for building your model. To quickly locate or launch a command, use the Quick Launch.

Very much dislike the change to ribbon rather than the toolbars. Takes up too much screenspace, and the re-organization of the commands results in a loss of productivity due to re-learning where everything is vs. the old customizable toolbars. The perfect way to satisfy all users would have been to allow the old legacy system to be used as well as the ribbon, much as Autodesk did with AutoCad - allowing either the ribbon, or the 'classic' interface. The new interface is definitely NOT a plus for current users.
