Hello Omar,

The Office Ribbon API doesn't let you customize a built-in group. Consider two options:
- create a custom group and place it after the Names group.
- replace the Names group with a custom group showing all the built-in buttons plus your custom button.

We give an example of using the second approach (it is an advanced one) at

If you use Office Ribbons for the first time, I recommend that you start with checking sections Office Ribbon HOWTOs and Office Ribbon Components.
