Hi, is anybody else missing the "tell me what to do" box next to View in the ribbon when you open a document in Word, or has it disappeared with Office 2019?

@Laila28 I still see the "Tell me what you want to do" box in the ribbon in Word 2019, Version 1904 (build 11601.20230). In Word 2016 from Office 365, Version 1905 (build 11629.20164) the box has been moved to the center of the title bar and its placeholder text just says "Search". Both of them have the same keyboard shortcut, Alt+Q, and their behavior is identical.
