Is it possible to create groups that are ’sticky’ across tabs?

In other words: I have a group call "Clip Text" with various clips I want to use from all tabs in my application - can I have this show up on each tab?

We have what you want but this feature is not recommended by Microsoft Ribbon UI Specification. You application would much better fit the ribbon idea if the controls were not moved from group to group dynamically. The better way would be to use Quick Access Toolbar, which will be available in the v1.2 (coming soon).

Still, if you want to move controls from group to group, you can do this in the Ribbon.CurrentTabIndexChanged event handler.
