MenuTabs Streamline User Experience, Set New Standard for Zoho Office Apps

PLEASANTON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zoho today announced Zoho Writer 2.0, the next generation of the company's online word processor. Featuring MenuTabs, an elegant new interface philosophy that uses tabbed menus to streamline the user experience, Zoho Writer 2.0 sets a new standard for user interfaces that will soon be adopted by other Zoho productivity and collaboration applications. Additional details can be found in the following Zoho blog post:

Zoho will discuss this announcement with users, media, and analysts via an open conference call at 2:00 p.m. Eastern time (11:00 a.m. Pacific time). Conference call details are available at, or dial-in at 1-218-936 6581; pin code 13619. The online presentation is available at

"Zoho Writer 2.0 represents a major overhaul of our user interface," said
Raju Vegesna, Zoho evangelist.

"We set out to improve user's productivity, fine tune the application, and establish a consistent UI across the entire Zoho suite. We believe we achieved these three goals in Writer 2.0."

Zoho's New UI Standard

Previously, Zoho Writer displayed all commands at once via a three-row toolbar. However, as functionality was quickly added, the UI became crowded. The crown jewel of Zoho Writer 2.0 is the MenuTab design, which streamlines the toolbar with tabbed menus that not only intuitively organize commands in context-based groups, but also provide quick access to commands in other tabs. With this innovation, users now get the best of both worlds - menus and tabs.

The Zoho Writer 2.0 toolbar includes Format, Insert, Review, Share, Views, and Page Setup tabs. Users click on a tab to view all related commands, which are displayed in a single row below the tab. Users can also click on a tab's down arrow to display the commands in a drop-down menu. The latter option lets users work in one tab yet access commands found in other tabs.

Other enhancements to the Zoho Writer 2.0 interface include an enhanced sidebar, improved header/footer with auto-fill, and document info and live word count displayed in the status bar. A screen tour presentation highlighting the new Zoho Writer 2.0 UI is available at
