Suppose I have an edit box that gets prepopulated with text. For example, in tax prep software, there may be a function that computes a value that is displayed, but then also allows you to change that value to something arbitrary.
How should the user be informed of the modification (so that they are later aware that they've done it) and allow a restore to the calculated value?
It seems too verbose to have a label 'overwritten' plus a button that says 'restore' that only appear when the value displayed is changed and then go away when restored.
- is there a more compact way to do it?
- is 'overwritten' the right way to label it? Some version of 'override' might work, but is there anything else?
