Customizing your UI

 

Customizable styles (Default Ribbon and Default Menu) have dockable areas that can be rearranged to your liking. Simply left-clicking then dragging the sub components will result in drop zones appearing. This allows you to drop the sub component where you choose, even outside of the main form if you'd like.
