  • The different ribbon tabs are displayed based on the current context on the form. Generally the first tab refers to the actions that can be performed on the primary entity record.

    The subsequent tabs in the ribbon are for the actions that can be performed on related entities. Say you have activities grid in one of the sections, the ribbon tab that allows actions to be performed on activities would automatically come into focus if you select the activity grid.

    I am not sure if the behavior can be changed programmatically.

  • Open Custom Entity Ribbon XML. Note the Ids of the Control you wanted to move and Ids of Tab that they belong to.

    Edit entity customization to put this control into RibbonDiff, while putting it in RibbonDiff give appropriate Tab Id.
