ShowCaption is invalid in Outlook2021

Hi, I am working on adapting AddinExpress to Outlook2021. I noticed that Outlook uses a simplified version of the ribbon. Some buttons on the Ribbon only have icons without Caption. When they are put away in the "..." button, we can see their Caption in the drop-down menu of the "..." Button. I tried setting ShowCaption=false, but it didn't help. I want to know if AddinExpress can do this, otherwise I can only consider simplifying Caption.

Hello Lucy,

The Ribbon API doesn't provide a way for the developer to deal with the simplified Ribbon.
