Was talking about the Connect interface with and old work mate from previous office.Looks like both agree. Ribbon interface is a catastrophic decision.
Personally, I've really felt disconnected with Bentley's vision on how MS should evolve, I love MS, SS3 is like a Ferrari tunned for race so don´t think I'm here for Autodesk fanboyism.
I got into MS after Acad swtiched to Ribbon. I loved Bentley systems because its unique approach to engineering soft with supper serious and practical interfaces, super powerfull design environment, great 3d modelling tool, the keyboard shorcuts that allow you to super quickly change tools etc...
I could not believe Bentley would EVER switch to Ribbon. I'm so dissapointed. What do you people think? you like it?.
Unknown said:"Do you use shift+right click to access view tools?"
Not to often. I tried turning off the view tool bar and using only the pop-up for about a month. The problem is that it doesn't give you access to View attributes and Display styles which I use allot in when working in 3D. So I ended up turning the view tool bar back on. Since its on I think its more convenient to use the view tool bar than the pop-up.

I don't use shift+right click to access view tools but will start using it from now on! I'm not quite sure what KEN-T is on about when talking about the shortcut: Press Shift (1st action), right click (2nd), click Window Area tool (3rd) VS Press ESC button/home focus(1st action) press 4 - View tools(2nd), press 4 Window Area tool (3rd). Or am I missing something?
I would have to say that the CE ribbon is larger than other ribbons I'm used to, and does slightly take up more screen real-estate, but my main issue is it's responsiveness. It always seems to take a second between my clicks to access the tool and actually opening the tool.
P.S microstation has been in need of an interface update for years but you're never going to please the anti ribbon clan,
