How do we get classic menus back?

Sure I can minimize the tool strip, but it doesn't spell out a bunch of functionalilty easy to find in the old menu bar.
Ribbons may be fine for selling Windows into elementary school, but Matlab is for professionals, not for kids learning to tweet and update their timeline.
And how is this "better"? Yes that's a rhetorical question... What a UI disaster.
So I have to write my request on the back of a $20 bill and mail it to MatLab Plaza? ;^))

The only way is to downgrade your Matlab to R2012a

Ribbons are a waste of space, especially on a laptop screen. By using the quick access toolbar and lots of hacking you can replace:
.
with this:
.
Note: there is still lots of wasted space, but its much better. Hacking is required because there is no way to add figure buttons to quick access. You have to mimic figure buttons using favorite commands with custom icons and code such as:
if strcmpi(get(zoom,'Direction'),'out')
set(zoom,'Direction','in','enable','on')
disp('zoom in: on')
elseif strcmpi(get(zoom,'Direction'),'in')
if strcmpi(get(zoom,'Enable'),'off')
set(zoom,'enable','on')
disp('zoom in: on')
else
set(zoom,'enable','off')
disp('zoom in: off')
end
end
Transferring these customization to another computer is a nightmare... Lets hope R2035 will be better.
