Backstage drop downs with icon, caption and text
Creating backstage dropdown like office print options

How is it possible to recreate the look of print options in Word and Excel's backstage view, where the drop downs have images, captons and text. Essentially I need to customise and recreate these options, for a custom printing solution.


Also is it possible to add multiple controls like the check box types as used in Word's Document properties for items such as Print Markup? Or any thoughts on how could such functionality be emulated?
it may be unhelpful, but it's all I've got...

Hello Roger,

You cannot do anything using Backstage controls: you don't have required control types. Consider showing some controls on a custom pane.
