UI Elements Overview Kentico 5

The user interface of Kentico CMS consists of modules that contain UI elements. A UI element is a page or part of a page in CMS Desk that is shown or hidden to the end user. The UI personalization available extends to UI elements like tabs, menu items and groups of controls. UI Elements are edited in the Site Manager ->Development -> Modules.
In this video we look at how UI personalization is used to add a new tab to the CMS Desk. This same set of steps can be used to add custom UI elements to any personalizable part of the CMS.

Thanks for the feedback. I will pass this on to the product groups for more feedback. Petr has provided additional information on the topic as well -

While this seemingly works, unless I'm mistaken, the top-level tabs demonstrated in the video load the destination URL into the framed area below *without scrollbars* (horizontal or vertical), making it largely useless!

The top-level tabs are seemingly meant to load URL's that provide their own scrollbars (e.g. as built-in tabs currently do).

Adding a top-level tab seems awfully useful, however. Can this scrollbar issue be addressed in a hotfix?
