I have what is essentially a dictionary of 24 things. My initial instinct is to arrange them in a grid:
The user I get to interact with has said that they want to use the scroll wheel to change the values, and to be able to select the magnitude of the change the scroll wheel makes. They also suggested this layout:
The screen is to be used for making adjustments to a scientific instrument. It might be that changing the value of one
thing also affects the value of a different
thing, although this isn't the case at the moment. The user will only want to change one
thing at a time.
Is there a preferred way to layout collections like this? What is easier for users?
